Healing Report of ELSA BLASS 1977
Here you find the translation of this amazing experience report:
Elsa Blass, from Säckingen via Starnberg:
and I are from Romania and came to Austria through the War, even though we had
German citizenship. When we were still living in Zürr in Tyrol, my husband was
employed by the Railway’s. At the end of the war in 1945, when all the
associated laws came into effect at the time, it also happened that my husband
became unemployed. Suddenly he had to share the same conditions, which applies
to all unemployed people. Since he had 3 amputated fingers on his right hand,
he could not handle everything like a full -fledged worker.
gradually became more discouraged and apathetic. When his mental health became
affected, he received treatment for a while in the mental hospital in Hall –
Tyrol, but his condition did not improve.
What now? How could we continue to pay for this and continue to survive
financially? As German citizens that was a sad state of affairs indeed.
read about the miraculous healings of Bruno Groening at the “Traberhof”. Then, I realized that this man had been given
God's power, otherwise he would not have been able to heal so many at once.
we get over 4 occupation zones in Germany? Only praying could help us with
that. After a full year, we were able to obtain in Säckingen on Lake Starnberg
a tiny attic room and assigned a monthly pension of 67 DM. By then my poor
husband was totally exhausted. He had become completely incapacitated by his
nerves. He could not sleep either and did not eat. The misery was so big that I
only had one hope left: Bruno Gröning.
At the end
of July 1953, I ran out of hope also because I had followed all the known
whereabouts of Bruno Groening and had written to all those places. Despite
including return stamps, I received no answer from anyone. That went on for a
year, I decided then that I could not bear my husband's mental state anymore. I
went to the doctor and described our situation. I wanted to send my husband
back to the mental hospital since I could not handle him by myself nor do
anything with him at home. But the doctor refused to treat my husband and
didn’t want to give him a referral to the clinic. All he recommended was: Go to
the council and ask for him to be
arrested and imprisoned by the police. I thought to myself, I'm doing
a crime now. What should I tell my husband? Let him be arrested like a criminal
by policemen? No! I said to the doctor: I can’t do that, the man is not that
dangerous! “Yes,“ said the doctor “ I know well what such mentally ill people
can do, they are unpredictable, since they need to be tied up in the car, so
that the driver can drive safely“.
But then I
thought, no, I have to find somewhere this blessed Bruno Gröning ! In my
distress I fled to the pilgrimage church "Klosterandachts" and
prayed. I prayed even further in my bed at night, because I felt that neither my
husband nor I could bear any more suffering.
Something had to happen! Suddenly a thought came to me: Run an
advertisement in the “Land- and Sea-Mercury“, then you will find Bruno
Connection with Bruno Groening and regulation
wanted to do that, that was a good idea. But would I have enough money before the
beginning of the month? I only had 3 DM
left, will that be enough? I went to Starnberg, and when I presented the add
for the newspaper with the wording: "Where can I find Bruno
Groening?", it cost exactly 3 DM. I was told there to come at the end of
the week for the reply. During the
following three days, a terrible
upheaval took place in my husband's
body. Then I knew it: those symptoms were already the “regelungen“, but at that
time I didn’t know how to handle them. They were scary, and a terrible thought
hit me: because we had no relatives or acquaintances here, no one will weep for
us. I couldn’t ask anybody for help or
support. My dear husband Georg had become purple in the face. Also the white in
his eyes had become purple-coloured. A disturbing sight! Now his time has come
to an end I thought, and I prepared myself for it. Perhaps something good could
still happen, but the facts were: he didn’t wash, he had not eaten for a long
time and his purple face indicated that he was finished!
And I went
to Starnberg to the newspaper office. Maybe an answer to my question had
already come from the add. And yes,
there was a letter from a community leader who wrote the following: In regards to your add, I wish to inform you that he (Bruno Groening) is forbidden to
heal. But it is not he who heals, IT heals the divine power. Come to the given
lectures and you will not regret it. And so I drove to Feldafing near
Munich for Bruno Gröning's talk.
opened the garden gate of the house were the lecture was to take place, a
terrible itching struck my body from top to bottom, at that moment. I thought I
had tread on some “itching powder” (chemical pesticide powder) that made one
itch and then searched the ground for it. An elderly lady came out and asked me
if I wanted to see Mr. Groening. What now? I couldn’t go amongst people in such
condition. What should I tell her? I looked desperately for a way out and saw a
small grove that belonged to the house. Without saying anything, I ran to the
trees as fast as I could to scratch myself and rub my calves against each
other. And my whole back, I rubbed and scratched it as well. At that moment I
didn’t care, what this lady thought about me, nor the other people who were
already there as well. Surely they must
have thought that I had lost my senses.
Groening came. So this is this God-gifted man! But I wondered if he would have
time to come to my husband too? I
couldn’t bring him to this place! Such were my thoughts. Mr. Groening looked at
everyone, including me. He said to me, "Stop thinking about your
husband!" I said: I have come here
because of my husband. He repeated his statement speaking very energetically:
"Switch off!" So, he knew everything about every person who was present
there! Then I became more convinced that he could help, “ If only he could
visit my husband...!”, that thought didn’t want to leave my mind.
Gröning said to the lady, who had been carried down from upstairs just a few
minutes before "Do you live up there?" "Yes," she answered.
"So go back up!" She replied: "I cannot walk!" He remained:
"Of course you can walk!" But she said again, she could not, he then
said: "Well, get up and go up those stairs!" She looked at him, then
she got up and tried to move one foot, then the second and she went up the
stairs. Then she shouted: "Mr. Groening, I'm already upstairs!
"Yes." he said, "Go up and down a few times!" and yes, she
did! And she was crying and laughing, the lady was overwhelmed by this miracle.
Next to her
sat a gentleman. Mr Groening had just looked at him, as he started to tremble,
to sweat and to puff, how long did that went on, I don’t remember. Then Mr.
Groening said: "Don’t let yourself be led astray. Stay healthy!"
three-year-old, deaf-mute boy started screaming. A woman from Augsburg said:
"I can move my legs! I feel so hot, and I can get up again!" Yes,
from everywhere the shouts came in, reporting that they felt this “Heilstrom”(healing
current) in their body. That was so overwhelming for me! But I couldn't stop thinking that I could not
bring my husband here and whether Mr.
Groening could come to him.
At the end
of the lecture, we were so overwhelmed and convinced. Everyone had had
something to ask for, and there were so many people! So I had the presence of mind to wait and be
the last one and thought, to start with how would I present my request? He may
come to my sick husband. I have no money, just 67 DM a month, this was too much
to die from and too little to live. In addition, they wanted to deduct 40 marks
from our payment in August because of a misunderstanding. So I went as the last
guest to Mr. Groening. I folded my hands before him and said: “please, please,
Mr. Gröning, I have a mentally sick husband at home.” He said, "I
know. So you want me to come to your husband? "
"I want you to, please!”
"So you want me
to visit your husband?" he repeated. I nodded.
"Yes," then he said to me, "there is a deep ditch,
filled with water, I can’t cross it. You have to build a bridge with me! "
I saw no
water or ditch. In a flash, I remembered: Aha! There’s a ban for healing on
him! And he cannot come, so I asked, "How am I supposed to do this
bridge?" He grasped into his pocket and handed me a tinfoil ball. I looked
at it uncomprehending and I asked: "How should I build a bridge with this
ball?" He told me: "Put this ball under his pillow, where
he sleeps and think of Bruno Groening. At the hours of 3, 6, 9 and 12 o'clock day and night I will
send, and the man will also get a job." I replied: "But who
can work or communicate with such a person? He is a wreck! "Then Mr.
Groening shouted at me: "Yes,
there will come such a job, and there he will stay and there he will be fine.
Ten years and 10 months until his retirement. And when you get home, you will
find your husband different than when you left him. And everything and all will
be all right."
I can no
longer remember, how I got from Feldafing to Säckingen. I felt so light, so
elevated, as if I were flying. When I arrived and saw my husband, I became
mindless and speechless. He was sitting on the couch. The purple colour had
gone from his face, also from his eyeballs. He looked young. And something was
incredible: He had washed himself, had combed his hair and even shaved and had
put on a fresh clean shirt. I could not believe it! That man was no longer a
wreck. What happened? We looked at each other for a long time. How can a person
change his appearance so dramatically in a few hours? He gradually became so
healthy that he was able to work again. He got a job and stayed there until his
retirement. Bruno Gröning had been right. The tinfoil ball was the bridge and
it happened: It helps, it heals the divine power!
understood, Bruno Groening was not there to put his hands on the purple face of
my husband. That became all good. This Bruno Gröning is a human being after
all, so how can a man perform such a miracle? That's God working in his body.
But when he
said, "Dear friends, when you hear, that my body is not here any more,
know that's just a body, named Bruno Gröning. But that’s not me. Call on me. I
will be with you just as we are together now and I will be able to help you
even better. When my body is recalled, I will not be subject to any earthly law
any longer, I am here and at the same time everywhere, where anybody needs

Westerndorf in Rosenheim in 1958, Bruno Gröning said: "You don’t need to thank me.
The one up there is the one who heals, you should thank HIM!"
happened during Bruno Groening's lifetime.
But is that
indeed different now, because he is in the hereafter? And what about all those
who get healed now and have asked him exactly in the same way as we asked for
our beloved ones back then? There are sick people everywhere, also from abroad
often comes a call for help. I received a letter from Bucharest. A relative
lost his speech after the Second World War as a result of gas poisoning. When I
stood in front of Bruno Gröning's grave, I pleaded that this relative would
receive help. At that moment, I got a terrible scrape from neck to navel, as if
I had swallowed a brush. On the third day the feeling faded and disappeared.
occasion of our fiftieth wedding Anniversary, this man's niece from our
homeland was present there. She reported that one morning his uncle was able to
speak again. The power of speech has remained with him until today. He is 85
years old now. These and many other requests have been fulfilled also - all the
healings are proof that Bruno Gröning was right. I alone could already write a
whole book about the many experiences I heard about.
Since 1953, except for the Christmas celebration, I
have had no personal contact through meetings with Mr. Gröning. Only mentally I
ask and thank him. That's all. Don’t I have the duty to write in what way
everything happened? Yes, I feel obliged to report it truthfully. There are
still people certainly who are able to turn to God for help and healing: And
there is only one advice from Bruno Groening: "Trust and believe - it
helps, it heals the divine power!"
