Thanksgiving – 26 May 2018

  1. Dearest Mother Mary,

Happy Mother’s Day! Thank you for your kindness in listening to our prayers. I am grateful for all the answered prayers. Thank you for all your help. Please continue to pray for me and help me when I feel so weak and helpless.

Your Grateful Daughter.

 

  1. Dearest Mother of Perpetual Help,

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the gift of our son. Today, he is 16 and about to sit for his ‘O’ level exams. He is a lovely and devout boy. He serves your Son as an altar boy fervently and reverently. However, he was struggling in his studies in the last 2 years and at this point his grades would not be able to allow him to enter Junior College or Polytechnic. Past 2 weeks, he has shown that he can manage his daily routines and eager to study well. With faith and love, we support our son to achieve his goal.

Your Loving Catholic Son.

 

  1. Dearest Mother,

My husband and I are celebrating our wedding anniversary at the end of this month. Thank you for being with us through our trials and challenges all these years. At a certain point of our married life, we were on the verge of divorce. You always sent godly people to assist us, help us and journey with us. You were our source of strength. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for all that you have done for us I also thank you for the three lovely children you have bestowed upon us. Please continue to bless our marriage and guide us every day of our life.

Your Catholic Daughter.

 

  1. Dear Mother Mary,

It has taken me two years to write this thanksgiving letter after my father’s death. My father loved you so dearly since he converted to Catholicism. When he was 58 years old, he had liver cirrhosis and the doctors told him that he had 6 months to live and to prepare for the worst. He never failed to attend the weekly Saturday novena and asking you to plead with your Son, Jesus, to heal him. He was miraculous healed and lived for 21 more years. In 2016, he contracted pneumonia. He told us, “in any situation, he placed all his trust in God and Mother Mary.” A few days later, my dad passed away peacefully. He had lived his life to the fullest. His only regrets would be that he could not live to see the new Novena Church. Thank you for loving and protecting my father all these years. And granting him a peaceful death. I believe he is with you in heaven.

Your Loving Child.

 

  1. Dearest Mother,

I am not catholic but I started coming for Novena devotions because I wanted to support and accompany my catholic friend who wanted to pray for her mom who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. While accompanying my friend, my father-in-law was diagnosed with stomach cancer and it was decided that he needed to remove his stomach. The surgery was considered high risk. We prepared for the worst and I prayed hard for him at the Novena. He survived the surgery without complications and is recovering well. I am thankful for the practice of prayer and faith at Novena Church, that allowed me to pray to God for protection and blessing over my father-in-law.

Your Non-Catholic Child.

 

  1. Dearest Mother of Perpetual Help,

I would like to thank you for your intercession. With your help, my son is able to be a doctor now. My son is going through another phrase in his life. It is not easy and stressful for him at the moment, but I am confident that our Lord Jesus, will continue to be with him and give him the strength to overcome all the stress and obstacles and be a good and respectable doctor.

Your Catholic Daughter.
