Thanksgiving – 18 December 2021

1. Dear Mother Mary,

Thank you for your intercession and blessings on my family. They have been my pillar of strength all these years.  

Your Loving Daughter.

2. Dearest Mother Mary,

Thank you so much for keeping me close to you and Jesus. Thank you for your intercession that has helped me gain clarity and strength in my marriage.

Your Catholic Daughter.

3. Dearest Mother of Perpetual Help,

I am truly grateful and thankful that my prayers are answered for my daughter who was living in France. She is now safely back safely in Singapore.

Your Daughter.

4. Dear Mother Mary,

You have always been a dear Mother to me. Through all these years, you have stayed by my side, always patient and forgiving. Like a mother, you provide the best for me. I can never know how to thank you enough. You have taken care of my family, provided me with two lovely daughters. Despite the challenges I face, I know you will always be there for me. There are times when I feel so hopeless and helpless but somehow things get better when I pray to you. Thank you for being my Mother.

Your Loving Child.

5. Dearest Mother,

A few months ago I sent in my petition regarding my daughter who was working 3 part time jobs and also studying for her exams. The Lord is a miraculous God who does wonders. Recently, she was blessed with a full-time job and also passed her exams. She even told me that her husband is very supportive towards her. Though they are still living apart, I can see that their relationship is getting better as they often have meals together and bringing the kids out. Thank you for blessing them and we place our hope and trust in you.

Your Faithful Daughter.

6. Dearest Mother Mary,

It has been a few years since I sought your intercession for my younger son to find a job relating to his post graduate studies and embark on the career which he wanted to pursue very much. It was depressing seeing his disappointment when his applications over the past months were not successful. Clinging on to the hope that our Lord will never abandon those who seek His help, we never gave up praying. Mother, our prayers were finally answered. My son was finally offered a job close to what he was looking for. He started work and is getting along well with his colleagues. I believe that in everything we prayed for, there is a time for prayers to be answered as God always has our best interest at heart.

Your Grateful Daughter.

7. Dearest Mother of Perpetual Help,

I am sorry that I could not thank you earlier. This thanksgiving letter is long overdue. My brother and sister-in-law failed to conceive even though they consulted many doctors for the past 8 to 9 years. They kept praying to you, dearest Mother every single day, however there were times when they felt broken and discouraged when they watched other couples with children. I remember in August 2018 just before the annual procession, I prayed for them whenever I came to your shrine and I continued with my prayers until the annual procession. Within a week after the procession, I came to know that my sister-in-law was expecting their first child. That was nothing but a miracle. Getting news like that was unbelievable. My sister-in-law had a smooth and successful delivery. My nephew is 2 and half years old now, happy and healthy and he is dearest to us because it was through your intercession that we are blessed with him.

Your Loving Daughter.
