As a child, Sharbel tended the sheep in the fields, where he built an outdoor shrine to Our Lady and spent hours in praer and reading scripture as well as, reading ……Thomas a Kempis’s “The Imitation of Christ,” was one of his favorites.  Numerous healings of the body, heart and mind have been obtained through his intercession.
