That Cleveland Faith Healer

Not everyone’s a believer – a report from the Cleveland paper.

(And remember – this guy does healing services in Catholic churches in the area – or has been. No questions asked, apparently, either.)

Dr Nemeh came to my area July 31st if I remember correctly, at St. George’s Byzantine Catholic Cathedral in Canton, Ohio. He spent something like 12-16 hours praying with people and did not charge anything. I guess a few miraculous things happened, and he seems pretty credible. But who knows huh? You hear so many stories on both sides.

It’s laughable that they’ve gone to Arthur Kaplan to get his take on the ethics of the whole thing.
This is the guy who did guest commentary for regarding the death-by-dehydration of Terri Schiavo. He was okay with it.

It’s one thing to write an article…it’s another to listen to someone very thankful for their healing…through this instrument who gives all credit to God.

I think Nemeh’s appearance in Catholic churches in my diocese is scandalous. Don’t we have enough scandal to fill the papers already? Where is Bishop Pilla?
The article presents Nemeh’s “practice” as nothing but a money-raising endeavor based on “vibrations” with unproven “instruments”. It did not appear to be such at first. Things do change. Already when this man was making the news last time, his daughter was issuing recordings of her music through his website.
Fallen angelic powers have the power to heal. Catholics should not be visiting them.
Lord have mercy!
