Thanksgiving – 13 Mar 2021

1. Dearest Mother,

On the eve of the Lunar New Year as I was walking home after attending Mass. I tripped and fell face down. I am 71 years old. I did not suffer much injury except for bruise under the chin and on the left knee. Thank you, Mother and our Lord Jesus, for protecting and watching over me. Without your help, I would have sustained more serious injuries. Thank you and loving you always.

Your Daughter.

2. Dearest Mother of Perpetual Help,

I am so grateful for the wonderful blessings and answered prayers that have come true. I came to Singapore 2 years ago to work and left my young family behind in Philippines. My employer is a faithful devotee of you, Mother Mary, and used to come to Novena Church but due to old age, she cannot come anymore. She told me to go to Novena Church to attend the devotion. I used to come once a month during my off day and during the pandemic I can only follow the devotion online. I have been a devotee of yours ever since I was young and I felt the peace from you. I am so grateful for all the blessings that you have showered upon me and my family. Last January, you have blessed me for the final inspection of the house. Despite these difficult times, you never leave us.

Your Grateful Daughter.

3. Dear Mother Mary,

I want to thank you and your Son, Jesus Christ, for all the love and protection bestowed on me in 2020. On the day after my birthday in January, I fell off the table while standing on it and suffered a severe fracture in my arm. The bone broke completely in 2 near the area where it connects to the shoulder and it was a very painful 2020 as the injury required major surgery, an implant and many hours of physio. Being a very active person, I suddenly found myself bedridden and handicapped. I could not do the things I usually do to unwind – no jogging, climbing, wakeboarding, swimming…. the stress was too overwhelming when I went back to work, and my body protested with gastric pains and temporary blindness. Work got political and I was asked to leave. Jobless, in pain and still unable to do the things I love, you would have thought that I would abandon God but instead, I reached out to Him and you, Mother Mary, to provide the light at the end of the tunnel. Surprisingly, God did not provide another job or cure me from my ailments but instead provided me with a boyfriend instead! My first in 4 years and the only relationship which has lasted more than 6 months in my life. I experienced God’s love and embrace through spending time with him as he is a very patient and obliging person. I decided to remove my implant this year as there was impingement and the pain came back but miraculously not as bad as before. I know that it can only have been through your intercession.

Your Loving Daughter.

4. Dearest Mother Mary,

This is a long overdue letter. We came to you and wrote a petition in 2016 and prayed for your intercession to bless us with a baby. After going through 3 miscarriages, you have blessed us with a healthy baby boy. We cannot thank you enough for this blessing.

Your Loving Daughter & Son.

5. Dearest Mother,

I want to express my most sincere thanks to you. Thank you for guiding me through my interview. I received feedback that my interview was impressive and I was told that an appointment will be made in a week’s time for a second interview. Thank you for constantly being by my side.

Your Grateful Son.
