I think with the world we’re living in, we need faith. We should be turning back to God. Our Blessed Mother has said there is a lot of power in prayer. It seems only the friends I have welcome the talk of miracles, and the presence of God in our lives.
When Sheriff Thomas Hodgson interviewed me on his television show (https://vimeo.com/254517198), we talked about my journey to Medjugorje in Bosnia from my book. I thought we’d talk about my visit with the men and women inmates at his jail, but the sheriff believed the spiritual side of the prisoners were extremely important.
That’s why I wrote A Spiritual Renewal: A Journey to Medjugorje. It has a lot about my relationship with my father and his life when he was one of commanders of the 26th Yankee Division during WWII. It’s a miracle when we open our hearts to let Our Lord in, and we come to realize messages He is sending down to us. Here are a few reviews of the book.
Feeling stuck? Read Alberta Sequeira’s book: A Spiritual Renewal / A Journey to Medjugorje to get back on your path.
Though I no longer adhere to what I call organized church religion, I was deeply moved by the sincerity of Alberta Sequeira’s book: A Spiritual Renewal / A Journey to Medjugorje. She quickly drew me into being part of her journey. I had read about the visionaries some years back. I do believe in miracles and Spirit. God has always been with me… and I with Him.
Her book also encompasses her experiences being married to a man afflicted with alcoholism – the difficulties of divorce and raising children alone. It was a time when she was without faith. How wonderful that she discovered that God was in her corner all along. She had just forgotten to ask for healing.
After her father passed away in 1990, she realized how little she knew about his life outside the home. He was Brigadier General Albert L. Gramm, Sr. You will want to start a journal about those you love. So many questions go unanswered. Still, she searched and filled in some of the gaps.
So much of the content of this book relates to me. I highly recommend this openly honest account of Alberta’s journey back to faith.

For me, reading A Spiritual Renewal was truly uplifting and inspiring. To use those words to honestly characterize a literary work these days is quite rare. It was refreshing that there was no sensationalism to be found, just the author’s heartfelt description of events.
Coincidentally, my reading of Alberta Sequeira’s story was well timed. It was a point in my life when I needed to be reminded that faith is often renewed when we most need it. Does that happen because we, as human beings, search for answers during times of loss and chaos, or does a Higher Power search us out when we truly need it? I’m not overly religious. In fact, I’ve been called “Doubting Thomas” more times than I care to admit. But even I could relate to this story because special coincidences, which most people would consider miracles, have happened to me, just as they did in this author’s life. It was good to read that I am not unique in that respect.
One of the biggest questions we all ponder in life is whether loved ones who have passed on, or other heavenly entities, such as God, The Blessed Mother, or angels actually do watch over us during our lifetimes. All I can say is, read A Spiritual Renewal, look back at the events of your own life, and then decide for yourself.
This book is a heart-felt, moving memoir of the author’s father and her journey to find inner peace and renewal of life. She shares her life story from a child to the present with beautiful photos included throughout the book. She shares her struggles and pain when her father gets diagnosed with cancer and has to say goodbye. Her hunger for God leads her to a journey to Medjugorje that brings the inner healing and peace that she was looking for.
