Little Audrey Santo
Servant of God
Audrey Marie Santo (December 19, 1983 – April 14, 2007), often referred to as Little Audrey by pilgrims to her home, was a young woman from Worcester, Massachusetts, United States, through whom miracles are said to have happened.
On August 9, 1987, when Audrey was three years old, Audrey fell into the family swimming pool. Audrey recovered but was rushed to the hospital where she was overmedicated and lapsed into a coma. The hospital’s physical therapist broke Audrey’s legs and dislocated her shoulder. She was out of the coma in three weeks. She remained in a state called Akinetic Mutism — non-speaking and limited movement.
Right from the beginning in the hospital hundreds of people came to pray for Audrey. For some reason God wanted Audrey to be known right from the beginning. It is believed that signs and wonders are manifesting with Audrey, around her and about her. Audrey seems to manifest unexplainable (medically) marks on her body that resemble the wounds of Christ. Audrey brings us to the Eucharist. There are religious images that exude oil and blood. There are six consecrated hosts that have exhibited human blood and another one of which exudes oil.
Father Renê Laurentin, a world-renowned theologian, concluded a four year personal investigation into the life of Audrey Santo. He visited Little Audrey in July 1993. Deeply moved he stated, “This is Holy Ground.” Bishop Daniel Reilly of Worcester, Massachusetts set up a commission of psychologists, doctors and theologians to study the events at Little Audrey’s.
Audrey was received by God on April 14, 2007. In Sept of 2007, Dr. Andrea Ambrosi, postulator from the Congregation of the Causes of Saints visited with the Santo family for four days. He met with Bishop Robert McManus to begin the Cause for Audrey by making her a Servant of God which begins the process.
Audrey’s mother, Linda Santo, will present on her behalf at this year’s conference. Come pray with us for the Servant of God beatification and canonization of Little Audrey Santo!
