Thousands of people from around the world diagnosed as
terminal or incurable by modern medicine travel thousands
of miles each month, enduring long international flights and
exhausting bus rides to Abadiania. A small town in the
mountains of central Brazil. They come to see miracle
healer, Joao Teixeira de Faria, the man the people of Brazil
have affectionately titled, "Joao de Deus" or "John of God".
Joao is a simple man of humble beginnings who devotes
three days of every week to healing his fellow man without
payment for his services.
As a young boy, Joao experienced black out spells. On
awakening he learned he had performed miraculous
healings. Religious leaders, the medical field, the police
and those in power threatened by Joaos abilities had him
beaten, thrown in jail then cast out of town.
This was a
pattern that went on for years. Even with that, Joao still
treated those who persecuted him when their own incurable
illness arose. Joao frequently states, "it is not me who
cures, God is the healer, I am simply the vessel". Joao is
known as an unconscious medium; he never recalls any of
the healings he's performed.
Not everything can be explained scientifically or rationally as
there are over 35 Healing Spirit Guides including King
Solomon and Saint Ignatius that use Joao as their
instrument, completely taking over his body and mind.
Guided by these Spirits, Joao was told to buy a specific
piece of land in Abadiania and build a healing sanctuary on
it. Joao named it the Casa de Dom Inacio, after his Patron
and Master Guide, Saint Ignatius.
Since he began 44 years ago, Joao has treated and healed
millions of people. While incorporated by the Healing
Spirits, Joao will see all who come to him without stopping
to rest. The poor and the famous alike stand in line, up to
thousands a day. They come to witness miracles and hope
to receive one of their own. For example actress Shirley
Maclaine who was told by Western Medicine she would
never dance again. That was until Joao removed a tumor
from her stomach.
Joao is acclaimed to be the most powerful spiritual medium
of our time and the greatest healer since our beloved Jesus
the Christ. From curing cancer, AIDS, tumors, heart
conditions, addictions, helping the lame to walk and the
blind to see, Joao treats every form of illness imaginable.
Many people report powerful outcomes that can be
measured; X-rays before and after for example. The proof is
a room at the Casa filled with thousands of discarded
crutches, leg braces and wheelchairs.
The two kinds of surgeries performed through Joao are
visible and invisible. Visible surgeries are done with
forceps, a scapel or knife. Patients experience minimal
pain, bleeding or anxiety during surgery. There are no
tranquilizers, pain medication or antibiotics used before,
during or after surgery, and no case of infection has ever
occurred throughout Joao's many years of work.
surgery is performed while meditating in what is known as
the Current room at the Casa. Healing Spirits energetically
bring about miraculous corrections on mental, emotional,
physical and spiritual levels. Healing can be immediate,
others recover over time, and some may require additional
Thousands of written testimonies and personal letters of
gratitude fill the Casa office along with stacks of newspaper
articles. Reports from clergymen, scientists and doctors
worldwide support claims of Joao's work.
"I've seen some things happen here at the Casa which are
not only unexplainable in terms Western Medicine might
use, but unbelievable!" -Stephen York, M.D.
Joao de Deus and his Casa de Dom Inacio Healing
Sanctuary give us the opportunity to spiritually awaken, and
then be transformed. To witness and experience God's love
and deepen our connection with him. A place where our
hope turns into faith, and faith into certainty. For the
thousands who travel to Joao each month from around the
world, it is the beginning of the end to their illness, on many
