  • Man of Miracles by Heather Parsons tells the profound story of healing priest Fr. Peter Rookey.

    From the first healings in Benburg, County Tyrone (where he helped found the Servite Order in Ireland in 1948), to the present day, Father Peter Rookeys ministry has taken him from his native USA to countries all over the world.

    Wherever he goes, thousands flock to the man of miracles. The stories of many of the remarkable healings - and exorcisms- that have occurred, are told here. From it all, emerges a portrait of a great and humble man, known to the world as the "healing priest" who, when asked about his gift, says simply: "It is Gods work, not mine, He does all the healing, I just pray."


    Probably one of the most well-known priests of the Servite order is Fr. Peter Mary Rookey. Although a number of interesting books have been written about Fr. Rookey and his charism of healing, when asked about his gift, Father simply says, It is Gods work, not mine - He does all the healing, I just pray.

    In 1948, after having been healed miraculously from blindness, Fr. Peter Mary Rookey formed the Servite Order in Ireland. Father has traveled the world using his charism, including many trips to Medjugorje. Although Father does not travel as much now, in 2006 at the age of 90, Fr. Rookey made a pilgrimage to Medjugorje.

    In Medjugorje, Father was asked to bless a young boy in a wheelchair, and after having blessed the young boy, Father ordered the boy to stand up. The boy stood up and walked to Fr. Rookey and fell sobbing with joy into his arms!

    Perhaps one of the most well known healings through Fr. Rookey was the physical and spiritual healing of David Parkes. You can send a prayer request to him via his website,
    Fr. Rookey shares what he calls a Miracle Prayer and tells us that if we mean each word fully with all of our heart, that we will experience something spiritually good.
