Thanksgiving – 11 Jan 2020

  1. Dearest Mother of Perpetual Help,

I thank you for being with me when I suffered a heart attack. I had 3 blockages but only required a stent into my artery. I thank you for being there with me during the difficult time.

Your Catholic Son.

     

  1. Dear Mother Mary,

Thank you for all the blessings I have received knowingly and unknowingly throughout my life through your intercession to your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. This thanksgiving letter is to specially thank you for your powerful intercession for helping my son study Medicine in the University. The first 6 months was very challenging for him but with your intercession you have helped him overcome all those challenges and he scored distinction in all the subjects.

Your Grateful Daughter.

 

  1. Dearest Mother Mary,

Thank you for making 2019 whilst the hardest year of my life at the start, but yet the most fruitful year of my life. Through your Son and you, I came back to Church and achieved so much that I had never achieved in the 45 years of my life. I gained closeness to your Son again. I had the most meaningful year with my children. Whilst I split up with my husband, we reunited with a better understanding and a deeper respect and love for each other. I had been healed from depression and Fibromyalgia this year. As I returned to the Lord, I received abundance. I bought my own house and I had offers to write a book and I ended the year with a successful business as well as a job of my dreams. My children are closer to me than ever before after years of being separated from them and now my son lives with me. I have the abundance that I never dreamed possible. Thank you, Mother, for bringing me back.

Your Catholic Daughter.

 

  1. Dearest Mother Mary,

Thank you for all the graces and blessings my family received through your intercession in 2019. Thank you for helping me to be re-employed after I reached my retirement age. The work has been challenging and human relationships can be quite frustrating at times. Thank you for being with me and helping me during the difficult moments.

Your Loving Son.

 

  1. Dear Mother of Perpetual Help,

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your intercession this past year. Without you and the Lord’s help, I would not have had the physical and mental strength to get through this entire year after the accident without cracking up and falling into severe depression. Words also cannot express my deepest gratitude for being able to volunteer at my friend’s workplace and to work on an ad hoc basis at my previous workplace.

Your Child.

 

  1. Dearest Mother Mary,

You are a truly wonderful Mother! Thank you for all your help in the safe delivery of my grandson. I entrust his safety and health in your most caring hands.

Your Ever-Grateful Daughter.

 

  1. Dear Mother Mary,

Thank you for all the blessings that you have showered upon me. For being in my job for 30 years, for being financially stable, for having an understanding husband and being blessed with the opportunity to travel and many other joys. I am also thankful to God who has been my guide steering me to do the right things. I have a lot of crosses in life but I know with His divine plan all things will work out.

Your Loving Daughter.

 

  1. Dearest Mother,

Thank you for being with us as we celebrate our 40 years of marriage. We, like other couples, went through our share of suffering from not being able to conceive a child in the first 5 years of marriage, to being diagnosed as suffering from suspected cancer of the throat. Next came the disaster of my husband being trapped under the collapsed building! With God’s love and mercy, we live till today thanking God and you all the days of our lives. Thank you, Mother Mary, for your Motherly love for our family.

Your Daughter.

 

  1. Dear Mother of Perpetual Help,

My family members travelled abroad for our vacation during the school holiday season. Through your grace and protection, you kept us safe from all harm and dangers, travelling safely and eating good food during our trips and all of us enjoyed ourselves very much. Thank you for your intercession to your Son, for His blessings on us and bringing us back safely home.

Your Grateful Children.

 

  1. Dearest Mother,

It has been 3 years since I got to know you. I knew you before I was baptised. You are so beautiful and you actually make me feel heaven welcomes a broken sinner like me. I was up on the mountain in Dalat for a silent retreat on 8 December 2016. I was a candle in the wind but you kept me lit despite the strong winds. Only much later, I realised that 8 December is your special day – The Immaculate Conception. The second time I encountered you was on 5 April 2017 – 10 days before my baptism. My mother became very sick in hospital. Death came knocking at my mother’s door and this was testing my faith. Not only did you call me to my first lunchtime Mass at Risen Christ as Novena was undergoing renovation, you told me you can be anywhere. Your soft hands touched me and my dying mother. You even showed me how to pray the rosary. You asked your Son to heal my mother, even though we were not baptised at that time. My mother not only got well, surviving two major illnesses, cancer and a heart-valve failure, she was also baptised. We began to attend the devotion together and our relationship improved as days went by. I am very thankful that you are always there with us guiding us along the way.

Your Daughter.

 

  1. Dearest Mother Mary,

Thank you for your intercession and answering my prayers. My sisters had a misunderstanding and are not on talking terms for some time. They avoided each other, hence the visit to our aged mother came to an end. My mother who is in her mid-80s, is weak and frail. She is always looking forward to their visit but her hopes turned to disappointment. I came to your shrine and prayed to you for help. On 26 December, one of my sisters decided to let go of the past and took the initiative to call the other sister. Both of them are now on talking terms. My mother is so happy to see both of them coming together.

Your Beloved Daughter.

 

  1. Dearest Mother Mary,

It has been 3 weeks since my surgery and I am making steady progress every day. I am able to walk now without crutches and without a knee brace. It’s a big improvement compared to my first week where I had trouble moving around without my crutch and I needed a lot of assistance from my family.

Your Child.

 

  1. Dear Mother of Perpetual Help,

Thank you so much for my “A” level results, I am very grateful that I did well enough to apply for the course of my choice. Thank you, Mother Mary.

Your Loving Daughter.

 
 

  1. Dearest Mother,

Life is like a music score with its highs and lows summing up our tenure here on earth and my family. You have guided me and my family all along from infancy to adulthood and to old age. We are grateful to you for saving my wife’s life when she had cancer in 2001 and kept this family happy together through the years. We thank you for all the blessings bestowed on us.

Your Son.

 
 

  1. Dearest Mother Mary,

I thank you for your continued prayers and intercession for my family and me. There were happy moments and unhappy moments last year. I lost my loved ones especially my Grandma, there were sickness and health scares among my family members. My father had a stroke but the happy news is he has completely stopped drinking. There were squabbles within my immediate family but we always forgave and moved on and I know it was only through your prayers that everything went well in the end. As my children have grown, I have also seen them become more and more disobedient. Nevertheless, I always turn to you to pray for us. Talking to you gives me great consolation because I really know you understand me. I faced some challenges in my workplace. But the wonderful thing is you and your Son, are always praying and guiding me with your presence that everything turns out well. I thank you dearest Mother, from the bottom of my heart for your loving embrace, prayers and intercession.

Your Loving Daughter.
