Thanksgiving – 2 April 2022

1. Dearest Mother Mary,

I prayed to you to help my mother more than a month ago when she suffered a stroke. You helped me make the journey home to visit my mother within 24 hours and with your intercession, my mother is recovering day by day. Thank you so much Mother Mary. All this could not have happened without your intercession and love for me and my family. Please continue to intercede for my mother to recover fully.

Your Loving and Grateful Daughter.

2. Dear Mother,

Thank you for helping my daughter settle into her work. She is less stressed now and getting into the routine. Her colleagues and supervisors have been kind to her and her boss even commended her on her work. I continue to pray for her and I entrust her to you.

Your Daughter.

3. Dearest Mother of Perpetual Succour,

Thank you for comforting my daughter who has special needs. It is just amazing that she took her 3 vaccination jabs and did not suffer any after effects at all. She took everything in her stride and I am just so thankful for this. Thank you also for taking away my anxiety.

Your Loving Daughter.

4. Dearest Mother Mary,

Thank you for your prayers and thank God for answering my prayers to enable my dad to recover from Covid. My dad is a senior citizen who has not received his booster because of his health issues. He has severe brain injuries which have rendered him unable to move and respond. He has been labelled “critically ill” by the doctors. If not for your intercession and the mercy of our Lord, he would have succumbed to the virus infection. Thank you! Please continue to heal and help him. May he be comfortable and have a good quality of life, please bless him to live with dignity and always feel and experience your loving care, compassion and embrace.

Your Grateful Daughter.

5. Dear Mother of Perpetual Help,

Thank you very much for answering my petition. My husband and daughter had not been talking to each other for a month after a quarrel. I was very sad and asked for your intercession to bring about healing and reconciliation between them, Shortly after writing to you, my daughter came home from church one day and said to her father “Peace be with you” and they have since started talking again. I know this is only possible with your loving intercession. I am so thankful for your constant love and protection.

Your Loving Daughter.

6. Dear Mother Mary,

I feel so relieved. Thank you for walking with me during today’s interview. I am still shaking from the experience and my busy brain is worried that I might have said the wrong things. I just want to say thank you for walking with me these past few weeks with my online classes and interviews, with my family and especially after the operation when as usual, I was so worried. So blessed to have you in my life.

Your Grateful Daughter.

7. Dear Mother Mary,

Thank you for hearing my prayers and helping my sister settle in well in her new role as a mother. My sister was initially facing some challenges and anxiety but is now stepping up and is a great mother. Thank you for blessing her and showing her the way. Thank you for also blessing my parents who are helping out with the new baby. Thank you for blessing them with the best of health, happiness and safety. I pray for your continued blessings for my sister as well as mothers, parents and caregivers around the world, that we will always be guided by your thoughts, words and actions in all that we do and be the best parents and caregivers we can be.

Your Loving Daughter.

8. Dear Mother of Perpetual Help,

Thank you very much for answering my petition. Two weeks back, I wrote to ask for your intercession for my two friends who were infected with Covid-19. Both are cancer patients. One has had three different cancers while the other is also suffering from kidney failure. I was worried because of their serious underlying conditions. Miraculously through your intercession and by God’s grace, they have both recovered from Covid-19. Their life journey ahead continues to be challenging, but with your help, Mother, I know they will be able to carry their crosses with fortitude and faith.

Your Grateful Daughter.

9. Dear Mother,

I was very worried when my helper told me last September that she wanted to stop work and go home. I came to you, dearest Mother, asking you to help me find a new helper amidst the pandemic. I am so very grateful that all went well. My new helper came in smoothly and safely and she seems to have settled in well into our family. She is indeed a God-send and is such a pleasant lady who does her job well. Thank you, my dearest Mother, for praying for my family.   

Your Child.

10. Dear Mother Mary,

I think it has been about 2 weeks since I wrote to you. Thank you for helping me wake up each morning to help out with the daily Mass registration process and also be able to attend Mass and receive Christ in the Eucharist. I have been reminded each day during the readings and Gospel how they apply to our day-to-day activities and our encounters with various people in our life. Please continue to give me the strength and energy to lead a prayerful life and more importantly help me to be more understanding towards people I encounter each day especially with my wife, daughter and son. There are many frustrations I have with them at times. Help me to be more tolerant and understanding towards them. As I learned from the homily, we need to change ourselves instead of others. We can only pray for them. The rest we leave it in the hands of your Son, Jesus. As we open up our borders and start relaxing our safe management procedures on Covid-19, please continue to protect each one of us from this virus.

Your Loving Son.

11. Thank you for your prayers for the last two years. My 92-year-old father passed away after struggling for 21 hours at the hospital. He had a bad fall and hit his head and was hospitalised, He enjoyed some respite and peace for three months at the hospital and nursing home after his fall. Thank you for a closure for my late father as he was miserable for 54 years.

Your Child.

12. Dear Mother Mary,

Thank you so much for helping me so far in my JC life. I sent in a petition at the beginning of the school year saying that I needed guidance as to what to do. I have come to realise that this subject combination is what is truly best for me. I have made many amazing friends, supportive teachers and I am beginning to find my place. There are ups and downs sometimes but so many good things have happened so far and I am so incredibly grateful for that. Thank you so much for your intercession, Mother Mary. I definitely feel your presence, and I love you so much for that.

Your Grateful Daughter.

13. Dear Mother,

I am a non-Catholic who wrote my first petition to you last week asking for your intercession for a friend who was in a medically induced coma after suffering a stroke. Two days later, I received word that the doctors had successfully done brain surgery and he is lucid. Mother, I know this would not have happened without your help.

Your Non-Catholic Daughter.

14. Dear Mother of Perpetual Help,

We want to thank you with our grateful hearts. Last year before Christmas we sent a petition regarding our eldest daughter who had been separated from her husband for nearly 3 and half years. She was struggling with 3 part time jobs and at the same time studying for her exams. We sent our petition to our dear Mother and the Lord was so wonderful to answer our prayers. He has blessed her with a permanent job and she has passed her exams. Recently, my daughter related to me the wonderful news that her husband has asked her to accept him back into her life. He realised that he truly wants her back as he could see during this pandemic she worked very hard to support the children and was such a good Mother to the kids. They deserve to be together again as a family, the children long for that. We believe that God has answered all my prayers and He has done so many wonderful things for me and my family. He is the Greatest and the Kindest. Thank you, Jesus and dear Mother Mary.

Your Faithful Children.
