Aline BRUYERE, Born in 1864
In the village of la Roque, near Sarlat. Cured on 1.9.1889, in her 25th. year. Miracle on 3/7/1912, by Mgr Albert Negre, Bishop of Tulle.
This case, of cavitating pulmonary tuberculosis, is recognised as miraculous, with a wealth of detail, difficult to visualise in those far off days.
The doctors, for their part, established that Sister JULIENNE: --had suffered from a grave and incurable pulmonary disease; --was cured in a completely sudden way in the Baths at Lourdes; --had remained perfectly well for more than a year.
These were the findings of a rigorous investigation undertaken by both Dr. Dunot de St. Maclou, and his colleague, Dr. Boissarie in 1 889-1 890.
When the Canonical enquiry took place in 1911-1912 (i.e. more than 20 years later), the same medical report was submitted for verification to another group of doctors who, in their turn, questioned and examined the nun. They were also shown an X-ray which demonstrated the original pulmonary lesion.
With these two medical investigations, 20 years apart, both giving consistent clinical and radiological reports, and the fact that this cure, when submitted to the list of criteria drawn up by Benedict XIV, did not fail to be judged as certain and complete, instantaneous, lasting and
occurring without the aid of any treatment, Mgr Albert Negre had no difficulty in declaring the cure on 3/7/1912, as "happening outside the sphere of nature, and miraculous.
