Thanksgiving – 21 Apr 2018

  1. Dearest Mother Mary,

        Thank you for guiding us throughout our efforts to have a child. We pray that you will continue to guide us until we reach the last stage and bless it with success. Bless us with beautiful twins to start a happy and complete family.

                                                                                  Your Grateful Children.     

  1. Dearest Mother,

        Thank you for healing my aunt who was diagnosed with a tumor in the eye. Thank you for answering our prayers.

                                                                                    Your Loving Daughter.

  1. Dearest Loving Mother,

        I thank you for answering my prayer. I went for a medical checkup and the doctor has confirmed there was nothing wrong. The success of this scope is through your prayers and intercession to your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you, Mother and Jesus, for you were there to guide and protect me and make it a safe procedure as I am already 75 years of age.

                                                                         Your Loving Daughter.

  1. Dear Mother Mary,

        Thank you for giving me a calm mind and for always guiding me in the decisions that I have to make and for interceding for me.

                                                                                                                                                                                  Your Loving Child.

  1. Dearest Mother of Perpetual Help,

        Thanks you for all the great memories that I have in school.

                                                                                 Your Grateful Son.

  1. Dearest Mother Mary,

         Thank you for all the blessings you have showered on us whenever I ask for your intercession to your Son, Jesus. You are always there for me. Recently, I asked for your help on behalf of my brother as he was having financial issues and his wife had abandoned him. But you helped him through all these difficulties.

                                                                         Your Loving Daughter.

  1. Dearest Mother Mary,

        Thank you for interceding for me. I was recently given an offer to study medicine at my dream university. This offer came after multiple rejections from other universities. For a brief period of time, I thought that I was going to give up on my dream of becoming a doctor. Nonetheless, I kept coming for Novena and constantly prayed for your intercession. I am excited to begin the next chapter of my life and I would like to thank you again because I wouldn’t be in the position that I am in now if it wasn’t for your constant help and intercession.

                                                                     Your Grateful Daughter.

  1. Dearest Mother,

        I am writing this overdue thanksgiving letter to thank you and your Son, our Lord Jesus, for the many blessings showered upon me and my family. I went through a rough patch in my career a few months back and came to you to intercede for me to persevere and overcome the many challenges, believing in God and focusing on my family. I am happy that my work conditions have begun to turn for the better. Even though, there continues to be many challenges ahead, I believe that if I continue to put my faith in the Lord and continue to seek your   intercession, things will work out for me and my family.

                                                                                 Your Grateful Son.

  1. Dearest Mother of Perpetual Help,

        Thank you for letting me change my course and while I was unsure of the power that you would have over me before I change, I now believe in the teachings of Jesus. I pray the rosary every night before I sleep.

                                                                                               Your Son.

  1. Dearest Mother of Perpetual Help,

        It’s been a very long while since I have written any thanksgiving letter to you, Mother. I find it hard to know where to begin to express my deepest gratitude for all the many intercessions you have pleaded for me. Mother, recently I sat for a test and I know that it is truly a miracle that I passed on my first attempt! Nothing else but divine intervention. And although I am still uncertain about my future, I live in faith knowing that I will be guided by your presence and prayers.

                                                                         Your Loving Daughter.

  1. Dearest Mother,

        My whole family would like to thank you for your great love.  We believe that you always care for us and help us in our needs. Two years ago, I lost my job and I had been searching for a job since then. It was impossible for me to find a job because of my age and the current employment situation. The  situation was devastating but with hope and faith I prayed to your Son and sought your intercession.

        Thank you, Mother, you heard my prayer and asked your Son to  help me and I got a job through your intercession. Our family is happy and grateful to the Lord and we glorify God, the Almighty. Thank you for giving me the strength to carry on despite the difficulties and hardships I faced during the past few years. I am forever grateful to you.

                                                                                   Your Faithful Son.

  1. Dearest Mother of Perpetual Help,

This is a long overdue letter. We, the Redemptorists of Singapore and Malaysia wish to thank you for your  intercession, your care and your blessings over the years.   In 1866, Pope Pius IX gave us a mission to ‘Make Her Known throughout the whole world,’ a mission to share the story of your maternal care for all people especially those in particular need and of how you wish to lead them to your Son Jesus Christ.   Since the first Novena in 1949, the building of the original  church in 1950 and the reopening of our new church in 2017, Novena Church has been a privileged place of divine assistance and of your motherly intercession. The success that we have experienced here at Novena Church is beyond any of our dreams and it is due most of all to the grace of God and to your  intercession. Thank you, Mother.

On this special day of prayer for vocations to the priesthood and religious life, we also ask that you pray that the hearts of young people may be stirred to dedicate themselves to preaching the Good News to the poor and the abandoned. That young people may be inspired to continue the mission that was begun by our founder St. Alphonsus in 1732.   Once again, we thank you dearest mother and ask you to always keep us close to you and that we may always follow the  example of your Son Jesus Christ by preaching the word of God especially to the abandoned. May we always be dedicated to this beautiful vocation that God has given us.

                                                                    Your Sons, the Redemptorists.
