Ingrid Betancourt considers her release as a miracle.

The French-Columbian Ingrid Betancourt views her release as a ‘’miracle’’.  In June she prayed to Jesus, and her prayer was answered. So she declared in an interview with the French magazine ‘’Le Pélerin’’.

‘’On 1st June I was listening to Radio Catholica Mundial and heard that the month of June is dedicated to the Holy Hart of Jesus. I prayed : Jesus, I have never asked anything because you are so great and I was ashamed to asked for something. But now I am going to ask something very concrete. I don’t know what exactly it means to dedicate oneself to the Holy Hart of Jesus but if you let me know this month when I will be released, I will completely belong to you.  On 27th June one of the rebel leaders entered our camp, he said : ‘Get ready, one of you will possibly be released.’ My liberation happened in a totally different way, but it is a fact that Jesus kept his word. To me this is a miracle!’’ said Betancourt adding that she discovered the Bible during her captivity in the jungle.   Source:
