Thanksgiving – 28 August 2021

1. Dearest Blessed Mother Mary,

My heartfelt thanks to you for the many years of blessings & maternal protection over me. No earthly mother could do what you have done for me. You quietly & gently guided me throughout my life & looking up to your gentle face always gives me much consolation in time of my desolation. Thank you, dearest Mother for loving me.

Your ever-grateful daughter.

2. Dear Mother,

Thank you for your intercession. I am 6 weeks into my new job and it is in a very interesting industry and I have good-hearted people for my colleagues. Please guide me to do my best while maintaining my health and family bonds. I remember my anxieties when no job offers came after 5 months of searching. Looking back, I now see that the unemployment was a time of recovery and a humbling lesson to trust our Lord. Thank you for your constant prayers and blessings.

Your daughter.

3. Dearest Mother,

This letter is long overdue. I want to thank you for answering our prayers for our new born baby grandson who had to go through a brain surgery after birth and has recovered well. We know it is through your intercession that this miracle happened. Jesus your Son, has granted all our prayers for this baby. We continue to pray for your intercession for the baby to grow normally. Keep him safe.

Your loving children.

4. Dearest Mother Mary, 

Although I was not born with a silver spoon, my dad and mum gave me the best that any parent could give to their child, and that is, unconditional love. For that, I will be forever grateful to them.  8 Aug 2021 is the one-year anniversary of my father’s passing. There’s not a single day that I would wake up in the morning, hoping that dad being gone is just a dream and I would still see him and hear his voice again. But, I know that he is in good hands now. Looking back, I can see that everything happens for a reason and God works in mysterious ways. I just want to thank you for all the blessings that you have given us throughout the years. Thank you, Mother Mary

5. Dear Mother Mary,

A week ago, I came to you to ask for your intercession for a close family friend whose x-ray result showed a 6-cm mass in his lungs. From the PET and CT scans, they showed that the cancer has spread to the other lung and also the lymph nodes. The prognosis was bad. His daughter who is not Catholic prayed to you and to your Son Jesus for healing of her dad. Over the weekend, her parents accepted Jesus. His daughter enquired about the RCIA and will be starting her journey at the Cathedral. To top it off, the biopsy results that just came back showed that the cancer cells are not the aggressive sort. The doctor is now more confident about the outlook. On behalf of the family, I want to say a big thank you to you and your Son for these blessings. With confidence, we know that all these are possible through your intercession and the grace of your Son Jesus.

6. Dear Mother of Perpetual Help,

I wish to thank you from the bottom of my heart for interceding for my vaccination in Singapore as a foreigner as well as for the vaccination of my beloved parents back home. We have been separated due to the COVID-19 travel restrictions since the beginning of the pandemic. Both myself and my aging parents have been vaccinated with no serious side effects and remain healthy and safe although we are miles apart. Mother, I would like to also thank you for your constant intercession for my parents’ medical tests to be completed with reassuring results so that they can finally travel to our summer home and spend a restful time following several months of isolation. Thank you, our Heavenly Mother, for keeping us healthy and protected until we re-unite again safely and joyfully in God’s time. With deep gratitude and genuine love.

Your Christian daughter.
