On April 27, 1954, St. Josemaria Escriva suffered a near fatal anaphylactic shock. He inexplicably survived the incident and, after having suffered with diabetes for over 10 years, St. Josemaria was miraculously cured of the disease. He died June 26, 1975, of natural causes and was canonized on October 6, 2002.
Saint Josemaria Escriva is recognized today as the patron of those who suffer with diabetes. His feast day is June 26th.
