  • Favors Received from prayers to Toni Zweifel - Opus Dei
    I had recourse to Mary and Joseph but then together with my wife and daughter we began to pray every day for the intercession of Toni Zweifel something that we still do As time went by we asked others to join us in our prayer among them various nephews Since many of my colleagues were in the same situation I joined a special network set up by the Swiss Federal Railroad for seeking internal and external jobs My experience was similar to being fully unemployed with the important difference however that my salary would largely continue to be paid for the next two years Thanks to the help of some colleagues and old friends in the personnel department I was able to put in a two month internship in Bern I wanted to do this to show my good will and flexibility Back in Lausanne in October 2000 I was offered a training course to become an administrative officer My command of German was tested as was my knowledge of the Swiss railway system At the end of the course in May 2001 I was advised to apply for a position in the accounting department Although I had no experience in bookkeeping I saw this as a chance to obtain a new position I applied and was accepted I am very thankful to Toni for this important help D F Lausanne Computer system unblocks itself I work as a computer technician for a company in Lebanon that markets a software program One day I had to make an emergency trip to a customer where the computer system that we delivered had aborted and the workers were sitting at their desks unable to work I went there without knowing what I should do since the problem was new to me It turned out to be a serious problem The whole system was crippled I made three or four unsuccessful attempts to restore it as my customer became more and more nervous Then I remembered that Lukas a person from Switzerland who lived with us for a while had once told us that Toni Zweifel was very efficient at solving technical problems So I asked Toni to help me At exactly that moment the system began to work perfectly My customer asked me how I had done it and since I could not really give him the exact reason I just said I don t know myself That obviously did not satisfy him He asked me to investigate the matter thoroughly so that if the problem arose again they could solve it without any loss of time Back at the office the engineer in charge said that in the 25 years that he had worked with this software he had never seen a problem solve itself He said I must be hiding something from him I could only assure him of my honesty But one thing was clear we couldn t provide the customer with the explanation he was demanding Then I
