Thanksgiving – 26 Dec 2020

1. Dearest Mother Mary,

Thank you for praying for me. Two months ago, my company closed down and I was worried about finding a new job due to the economic uncertainties during this pandemic. Thank you for the online Novena urging us to write whatever petitions that may seem impossible in our hands and care but possible in your hands and care, dearest Mother. Two weeks after my previous company closed and after I sent the petition together with my rosary prayer daily, I found a job immediately. I am so grateful and thankful that you have answered my petition. Whenever I feel in doubt or feeling down, I know where will I turn to for help. Thank you once again for answering my prayers.

Your Faithful Daughter.

2. Dear Mother of Perpetual Help,

Thank you for guiding me through my “A” Levels and for carrying me through these past 2 horrible years in school. I could not have done it without you, Mother. Without your Son, I would have never been able to deal with my problems in school. All the toxicity and hatred, could have easily worn me out too, but your Son, sustained me. I also thank you for the health of my family and friends. Thank you for keeping me alive these 2 years and preventing my mental health from degrading further. Without you, I could have easily taken my own life and be overwhelmed by the stress. Thank you for all the blessings you have given me this year. I am eternally grateful.

Your Exhausted Catholic Son.

3. Dearest Mother Mary,

I would like to thank you for the many gifts my wife and I have received from you over the past 45 years of our marriage. After our marriage, we had 3 beautiful girls. But during her 3rd pregnancy, my wife contracted colon cancer and by the grace of God, she was cured and my 3rd daughter was born. Now we have 5 grandchildren from our 3 daughters. It is through our regular Novena Devotion that the Lord has blessed us with 45 years of wonderful times together. Thank you, Mother Mary.

Your Loving Son.

4. Dearest Mother,

I would like to thank you sincerely for your intercession for my 11-year old daughter who was diagnosed with Singulair Withdrawal Syndrome in August this year, after we stopped her asthma medication. She was severely depressed, suicidal and tormented with hallucinations and anxiety. Our world fell apart and I was totally heartbroken. I pleaded with you day and night to save my daughter and sent in my Novena petition. I also started attending the online Novena weekly and the homilies were a source of comfort for me and I felt God assuring me that He would send me help and He did, through your intercession, dearest Mother. Today, my daughter has recovered miraculously. Thank you so much for praying for her.

Your Loving and Grateful Child.

5. Dearest Mother Mary,

I have recently retired and I would like to thank you for interceding with Jesus to grant me the blessing of a long and fruitful 38 years career as a teacher. Thank you for giving me the strength to carry out my duties even though it was quite hectic at times and when I doubted my capability. Thank you for the affirmation I received from my students and colleagues over the years and especially in the last few weeks. Please guide me with the choices I make as I move on to the next stage in life.

Your Loving Daughter.
