John of God: The Brazilian Healer Whos Touched the Lives of Millions by Heather Cumming

I am the happiest man in the world because God entrusted me with this mission.

In John of God: The Brazilian Healer Whos Touched the Lives of Millions, a seemingly average rancher from Abadiania, Brazil, offers a powerful message of love, compassion, and hope for humanity. Joao Teixeira de Faria, the healer and medium known as John of God, allows spirit doctors to take over his body three times a week to miraculously treat the thousands of people from all over the world who come in need of remedy. John of God has fulfilled his mission as a medium for more than forty-eight years, making numerous pilgrimages around the world. Drawn by the hope of instantaneous healing, over eight million believers have proceeded in front of him throughout his life, as tens of thousands journey to Brazil each year to see John of God and his home, the Casa de Dom Inacio de Loyola, which is designed to accommodate hundreds of visitors each day. Despite all the media attention paid to this inter-nationally praised healer, little has been revealed about his personal life. Translator Heather Cumming and photographer Karen Leffler have traveled with John of God and chronicled his life and work. What began as an endeavor to document the testimonials of his remarkable healings has now become the first complete, authorized portrait of his world. Stirring words and vivid photographs -- many of which capture the haunting spiritual energy that surrounds John of God and the Casa -- take us on an affecting and deeply personal journey with the humble medium who offers hope for people with none. The result is an intimate portrait of an ordinary individual in extraordinary circumstances and a reading experience that will bring readers of every persuasion closer to their faith.

This past winter, my husband Adam brought up a news story about a cult leader in Brazil who had been arrested for sexual assault. It took several more mentions before I decided to read this story for myself. It came out as a joke; we both laughed. My current life as a wife and mother of two girls bears little resemblance to the decade in question the period of hopelessness and stagnation that enveloped most of my 20s. I needed a good therapist and antidepressants which I eventually got to. Before that, like many, I turned to spirituality. I studied reiki and meditation.

The allegations against Faria put him at the center of perhaps the biggest sex scandal to hit the country in decades, and some are even calling it the MeToo equivalent for Brazil. Nearly female victims ranging in age from 9 to 67 have claimed they were sexually abused by the medium, according to the prosecutor's office, which added that four of the alleged victims are American. Although a statute of limitations of six months gives prosecutors the ability to investigate only some of the women's claims, they said that they are asking all the women who say they've been victimized to come forward and tell their story. On Wednesday, Faria gave new testimony in the city of Goiana.
