Jotm Coonor, of Boston, who had come to the shrine with the New England pilgrimage, was also re- orted cured during the blessing. As Archbishop Beckman raised the Blessed Sacrament life, is reported to have returned to Mr. Coonor's deformed limb, from which he had suffered many years, and he was able to walk without mechanical aid. Convert To Church The third remarkable cure re- ported was that of Miss Helen Tubbs, of Lansing, Mich., an Epis- copalian who became a during her visit to the shrine. Thirty-two years old, Miss Tubbs had been a crippIe since 1921, as the result of an attack of infantile paralysis. Having heard of the Shrine of St. Anne, Miss Tubbs took the journey alone, being helped on and off the trains by considerate passengers. At the hospital across from the shrine, she asked a priest to instruct her in the Catholic faith. On Saturday, July 25, the Vigil of St. Anne, when she was conditionally baptized, her condi- tion had improved and she was able to take a few steps without crutches. On the Feast of St. Anne she received her First Holy Com- munion and was confirmed by His Eminence Rod'rigue Cardinal Villeneuve, Archbishop of Quebec. She was then able to discard the braces she had worn on the upper part of her body and on one limb. The doctor at the hospital re- i ported that circulation had re- turned to the limb, which had practically atrophied, and that it would soon be normal "It was truly a holy pilgrimage in the strict sense of the term pilgrimage." Archbishop Beckman declared on returning here. "From the time we left Chicago we were shut away from the world and its cares and during the whole two weeks our time was devoted' to prayer." firmed following the Mass. Con- gratulated by His Excellency on his Silver Jubilee, Father Loeb was on that day appointed Dean of the Third District, because, in the words of His Excellency, "he has been a faithful servant, and holds the distinction of being the i first priest from St. John's Sem- inary." "Twenty five years ago," spoke the Bishop of Father Loeb, "he stood before me as a Seminarian. I gave him the exhortation: 'Dearly beloved son, see that you perform the duties of the priesthood well. Let your life be one of holiness, and may it be a blessing to the body of Christ'. Today I can say without exaggeration that his has been a useful priest's life. He has been a good, faithful priest, a loyal priest, a priest the Bishop may be proud of". On the occasion of his Jubilee Father Loeb was honored by fel- low priests and alumni of St. John's at a meeting of he Alumni Assn.
