Ecumenism in Action

The Curt Jester has a good post about a non-Catholic healed by a Catholic saint.

This seems to me a very good example of the right kind of ecumenical dialogue…

My Presbyterian father used to tell us about his Great Aunt Anne…a staunch Mennonite woman who was healed of bone cancer by praying to the bones of St Anne. Great Aunt promptly converted to the Catholic faith and filled her room with rosaries, statues, Catholic images and lots of candles. This was met with great dismay by her strict Protestant Pennsylvania family, but she stuck to her guns.

Are there any other stories of Protestants converting to the faith through Catholic saints’ miracles?
