Pat Clarke from Delvin in Co. Westmeath brought his gifts of healing to Carrickmacross tonight. St Joseph’s church was packed out for a Mass of Healing celebrated by Fr Larry Duffy PP.
Afterwards Pat Clarke spent two hours meeting hundreds of people and praying over each individual. Some of those present ‘swooned’ or fell backwards after the faith healer had touched them and helped by Pat’s team then lay on the floor for a short time before sitting up again.
Pat does not advertise his ministry and has to be invited to parishes. He told me he has been carrying out this work for seventeen years. He is a carpenter by trade and is married, with four children.
A great atmosphere of peace and quiet devotion from before the Mass at 7:30pm until 10:30pm when Pat was seeing some latecomers. Beautiful singing by the choir and organ music as well.
