Thanksgiving – 29 July 2023

1. Dear Mother of Perpetual Help,

Thank you for guiding me and interceding in my prayers when I asked for strength and good memory during my exams. My results came back and I received good grades. This would not have been possible without your help.

Your Son.

2. Dearest Mother,

Thank you for being with me and protecting me while I was away last week. What stands out was when I saw the “green man” and started crossing the road, just then a van turned towards me. The traffic lights on both sides of the road were not in sync. I could have been knocked down, but both the driver and I stopped in time. Thank you for keeping me safe.

Your Grateful Daughter.

3. Dear Mother,

Thank you for your intercession. My husband had a life-threatening condition 2 weeks ago and had to be hospitalised for a week as the risk of developing a stroke was very high. We were worried and prayed very hard for him. Thank you for keeping him safe and our family is very grateful.

Your Loving Daughter.

4. Dearest Mother,

I celebrated my first wedding anniversary with my husband. Thank you for your intercession during difficult times and for the graces that we have received as a couple.

Your Catholic Daughter.

5. Dearest Mother Mary,

Words cannot express how grateful I am for your kind intercession. You have been guiding and interceding for me throughout these years whenever I was in difficulty. You were always there to guide me out of my misery. However, I have not written a thank you note all these years. 3 years ago, our company was in financial difficulties and the Covid pandemic made it even worse. The salaries of our staff were reduced by 2/3s as business was practically at a standstill. I came to you for your kind intercession and 3 years later, we managed to secure orders and contracts. These not only enabled us to settle all of our outstanding loans but also back pay the loyal staff for the 3 years reduction of their salaries with an additional one-year bonus as well. All these will not be possible without your kind intercession. Dear Mother, you have shown over and over again that your love for us is always there and you are ready to intercede for us.

Your Grateful Son.

6. Dear Mother,

I am filled with gratitude and heartfelt appreciation for your intercession and blessings upon me and my family. Your loving presence and guidance have brought us comfort, strength and solace during challenging times. Through your unwavering intercession, you have shown us the path of compassion, forgiveness and faith. Your help has touched our lives in countless ways, bringing healing and protection. We are forever grateful for the miracles that have unfolded through your intercession. Your gentle presence has illuminated our path, helping us navigate life’s trials with courage and grace. Mother Mary, we cherish the blessings you have bestowed upon us and the love you have shown. You are a beacon of hope and a source of inspiration for us all.

Your Catholic Son.

7. Dearest Mother,

Thank you for helping me see the needs for my family despite our current unfortunate crisis. I am more focused and calm now. I know that you are always there with me especially for the past 3 years. I would not have been ok if not for your intercession for me and my family. Thank you for the recent family reunion in Europe. I feel more assured now that I have trust in the goodness of God.

Your Grateful Daughter.
