Thanksgiving – 25 March 2023

1. Dearest Mother Mary,

Words cannot express how grateful I am for your constant intercession. Two years ago, I was traumatized by a colleague who refused to teach me when I was on the job training with her. I could not sleep and eat for a month and was worried that I will look bad in front of my boss. I came to you pleading for your help to go back to my old office which was yet to close down due to restructuring. My prayer was heard and I went back. This year something happened in the same office but with another lady. I came to Novena Church again pleading for your help for another job. Thankfully, God sent many angels to me in my search for a new job. I met my ex-colleague and she recommended me a job the following week. Mother, thank you for your intercession.

Your Grateful Child.

2. Dear Mother of Perpetual Help,

Thank you for all the wonderful blessings you have given me for the past 20 years. I have been attending the devotion since I came to Singapore in 2003. You have blessed me with everything I have now. My son took his PSLE in 2019 and managed to enter the express stream in a Secondary School. In 2022, my daughter took her PSLE and with your blessings she got into the express stream as well. I strongly believe that all things happened due to your intercession.

Your Loving Child.

3. Dearest Mother,

Oour heartfelt gratitude and thanks for our family through these years. I wrote a petition to you last Thursday asking for your intercession to your Son, our Lord Jesus, for the healing of my wife. She had cancer 2 years ago and has been on long term medication. She felt a lump in her throat last week and the doctor sent her for an ultrasound which took longer than usual. We came to your shrine on Friday and Saturday to pray for your help. On Saturday evening, the doctor informed us the result was normal. We were elated and relieved that none of our worst fears came true. We are convinced Jesus healed her and truly it is a miracle. Thank you so much Mother, words cannot fully express our gratitude to you.

Your Faithful Son & Daughter.

4. Dear Mother Mary,

3 months ago I asked for your intercession to help our son with his developmental needs and also to guide us through the difficult time. With your help, we have received a lot of support and he has progressed so much and is on track to be part of the mainstream. It is a huge relief for us.

Your Loving Children.

5. Dearest Mother,

Thank you for praying for my mum who was hospitalised for the past two months with many health conditions. Her health suddenly became worse as her blood level dropped drastically. You have interceded for her to get well and be as comfortable as possible. Mother, your intercession has been experienced as my mum was discharged from the hospital.

Your Faithful Daughter.

6. Dear Mother of Perpetual Help,

I would like to thank you and Jesus for looking after me. A few days ago, as I was about to board a bus to go home, I slipped and fell grazing my right shin and hurting my right ribs. I know that based on the impact of the fall, I could have fractured my ribs and even punctured my right lung. But thanks to Jesus’s and your protection, all I sustained was a bruised shin.

Your Grateful Child.

7. Dearest Mother,

Thank you for helping my eldest daughter secure a job. She will be graduating from university in May. But, with the current job market rather gloomy, granting her a job even before she graduates and a job that she was hoping to have is really a happy feeling.

Your Catholic Son.

8. Dearest Mother,

Thank you for blessing me with this wonderful journey in life filled with happiness, interesting outcomes with ups and downs. Thank you for keeping everyone around me especially my family and friends safe and blessing them with good health. Thank you for answering my prayers and loving me as you always do.

Your Loving Child.

9. Dearest Mother Mary,

It’s been a year since grandma passed away due to complications of ageing and Covid. I vividly remember 2 months prior to her death coming to Novena Church during my day off to pray for her healing and included her in my visits. She saw the beautiful Prayer Garden of the Church and you Mother Mary, whenever I video-called her. Sadly, she succumbed to her illness. I mourned for her passing dearly and my daily visits to Novena Church gave me strength and comfort.

Your Loving Daughter.

10. Dearest Mother,

I am sorry it took so long to thank you for all the things that you have done for my wife and me. You have answered our prayers and we are so thankful and grateful for your intercession.

Your Son.

11. Dearest Mother Mary,

Our daughter is expecting her second child and the first scan and check-up went very well for both mother and baby. Thank you for watching over them.

Your Loving Children.
