Did the Singapore Catholic Archbishop’s prayer save a dying cat?

Archbishop William Goh posted in his Instagram about how he found a cat that looked like it would die in his house compound, but that it survived miraculously after he prayed over it. Even the vet who saw the cat was surprised by its complete recovery. two days after being admitted at his clinic, all the cat’s organs began collapsing and she had also gone into seizure.

The head of the Catholic Church has christened the cat ‘Cat-Thedral’ because he found her just prior to the re-opening of the Cathedral. But the bishop is looking for someone to adopt her as some of his staff are afraid of cats.

The archbishop said, “this is particularly appropriate during this season of Christmas where we are called to extend mercy not just to human beings but to all of creation, especially to animals who were present at the stable to welcome our Lord at His birth.”

CAT-THEDRAL: Three weeks ago, we found a dehydrated and dying stray cat in the compound of the archbishop's house. She was in a most pitiable state. We had called the pest control people who service our premises to dispose of the carcass, assuming that she was dead – until we saw some signs of life. I prayed over her and called a cat lover to bring her to the Veterinarian. After a couple of days, the vet warned us that she might not survive as all her organs were collapsing and she had gone into seizure. We continued praying for her and to everyone’s amazement she recovered! The vet was beside himself with wonder and declared it a miracle! As it happened, we found her just prior to the re-opening of the Cathedral, and as she has been loitering around the vicinity, we named her “Thedral”. Today, Thedral is a lively and very loving feline. She is even toilet trained! Now we are looking for someone to adopt her as some of the staff here are afraid of cats. I hope there is a cat lover who could adopt this cat out of mercy and compassion. This is particularly appropriate during this season of Christmas where we are called to extend mercy not just to human beings but to all of creation, especially to animals who were present at the stable to welcome our Lord at His birth.
