Thanksgiving – 27 August 2022

1. Dear Mother,

We have been praying for many years for our daughter to find a good life partner. Thank you for your intercession that she found a good man and they have registered their marriage. He is not a local and is a non-Catholic and also a divorcee, so it is a huge hurdle for them to get the Church’s blessings. We pray and have faith that God will show them the way.

Your Catholic Children.

2. Dearest Mother of Perpetual Help,

I thank you for your intercession for my husband. Recently, he went for a health screening and the result was not good. He was asked to go for an MRI scan the next day. I came to your shrine and asked for your intercession that it will not be cancerous. After the scan, the result turned out to be normal. Words cannot express our gratitude to you and your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.

Your Loving Daughter.

3. Dearest Mother,

For the first time in two and a half years I was able to visit my country and everything went on quite smoothly. Thank you for your intercession to make this trip happen and it was so refreshing to be reunited with my family again, and to see them doing quite well in coping with the pandemic.

Your Child.

4. Dear Mother Mary,

My daughter got into a Catholic Primary School through your intercession. In there, she will be able to continue to grow in her faith, and grow closer to Jesus. My wife and I are grateful for your company through our unsettling journey of the Primary School Registration.

Your Grateful Catholic Son.

5. Dearest Mother Mary,

My grandmother was hospitalised and diagnosed with advanced dementia and she could not eat or talk. We came to you with heavy hearts, seeking guidance and solace from you. Eventually she was put on a feeding tube to provide her with the essential nutrients and energy and was well enough to be discharged from the hospital. A few days ago, she was taken off the feeding tube and could even eat solid food like rice and talk like her pre-dementia days. We were so surprised and touched that tears welled up in our eyes. Our family would like to thank you for your intercession with the deepest gratitude in our hearts.

Your Catholic Daughter.

6. Dear Mother,

We are grateful to your intercession for my husband’s cancer is under control.

Your Grateful Child.

7. Dear Mother of Perpetual Help,

Thank you for answering our prayers when my husband was struck with a sudden skin infection and had to undergo 5 operations in the last 3 months to clear it up. I would like to thank you for those who have prayed for him for his recovery.

Your Loving Daughter.

8. Dearest Mother Mary,

Thank you for your intercession and prayers to your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, for the blessings he has showered on me and my family and for protecting us from harm. Thank you for blessing my parents and parents-in-law with good health and harmony in the family.

Your Grateful Daughter.

9. Dear Mother,

Thank you for blessing us with a healthy baby boy after years of trying to conceive.

Your Grateful Child.

10. Dearest Mother,

I would like to thank you for the many blessings you have given me. Last year I wrote a petition for my mother to secure a job as she was retrenched due to Covid. A month later, my mother got the job offer. Earlier this year I also asked for your help as I was taking part in a major school performance. With the help of your powerful intercession, not only did I overcome my stage fright but I also put up a good performance for the two-hour show. Thank you so much for always being with my family.

Your Grateful Daughter.

11. Dear Mother,

This has been a long overdue letter. Today, we celebrate one year since we first met. The past year has been a struggle for both of us and we were uncertain about our own life journeys. Today, we are both thankful for being blessed with a marriage of unconditional love, trust and reverence to God. Thank you for always overseeing and protecting us.

Your Loving Non-Catholic Children.

12. Dear Mother of Perpetual Help,

I was infected with Covid and was in self isolation. It was mild and after 3 days I was well. Thank you for keeping me healthy and my loved ones safe.

Your Grateful Child.
