Healy recently participated in meetings in Brazil, Qatar and Bethlehem, Israel where God's healing love was manifested in new, marvelous and amazing ways, according to a news release. She is quoted as reporting: "I'm more convinced than ever that the Lord is doing something new and extraordinary in the church, and that the superabundance of supernatural manifestations is part of his answer to the darkness of our times."
Healy teaches scripture at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit and serves as chair of the Doctrinal Commission of International Catholic Charismatic Renewal Services.
A graduate of the University of Notre Dame, she earned a master's degree in theology at Franciscan University of Steubenville and a doctorate in biblical theology at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome. Healy served for several years as the coordinator of Mother of God Community, a lay Catholic charismatic community in Gaithersburg, Md. She is co-editor of the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture, a series of commentaries that interpret scripture from the heart of the church, and author of several books, including "The Gospel of Mark" and "Men and Women Are from Eden." She speaks nationally and internationally on topics related to scripture, the theology of the body, and the spiritual life.
