Thanksgiving – 3 December 2022

1. Dear Mother,

Thank you for being with us on our holidays in Jeju last week. The weather was good and the rain predicted to fall on our last 2 days there didn’t happen! We managed to arrange a great day of unplanned sightseeing and I had help from friendly Koreans in getting things organised. We are grateful for your guidance and protection.

Your Daughter.

2. Dearest Mother,

This thanksgiving letter is long overdue. Today, I’m giving testimony to your great love and intercession to your Son, Jesus, for me, not once but time and time again. With my husband’s sudden death, I had to sell my house. I turned to you, dearest Mother, for help, as I feared a long drawn and worrying uncertainty. But to my relief, in a matter of 3 days when the sale was announced, the deal was clinched. I was even offered a price way beyond my expectation. With the Lord’s grace, I was granted a near immediate solution to my problems. I am so blessed to have received from the Lord and I know I will be more blessed when I give accordingly. I thank you, dearest Mother and I love you.

Your Ever Grateful & Devout Catholic Daughter.

3. Dearest Mother Mary,

Thank you for answering my prayers. My wife had a successfully thyroid cancer surgery and is recovering well.

Your Son.

4. Dearest Beloved Mother,

My family and I would like to express our sincere thanks to you for your powerful intercession and abundant blessings. We prayed for the safety of my son who was away for a couple of years Your beloved Son, Jesus, and you, have heard our prayers. Currently, he is back home for a good bonding together with the entire family. We beg you dearest Mother to pray for us and be with us always. May God help him to secure a suitable job in Singapore soon. Once again, we thank and praise God for the graces we had received always!

Your Ever Grateful Catholic Family.

5. Dearest Mother of Perpetual Succour,

Thank you for protecting my husband from a potentially serious accident yesterday. As he was driving along the fast lane of the expressway, the engine of the car suddenly stalled, without any warning. Miraculously, an ambulance which happened to be travelling a few cars behind him came to his rescue. The driver saw what was happening and put on the flashing lights to block other cars along the lane. The ambulance did not have any patient in it so the medic came out and helped push our car to the road shoulder, while directing traffic safely. It was through your intercession with Jesus that the right people were there at the right time to help my husband. Thank you, dear Mother, for your protection.

Your Loving Daughter.

6. Dearest Mother Mary,

Whenever I write a petition to ask for your intercession on something I also make it a point to write a thanksgiving letter to thank you for everything I have in my life. I just want you to know how much I love you and how thankful I am that you are my Mother. You are so gentle, patient, understanding and most of all loving. Just like Jesus’ love for me, I know your love for me is so strong and powerful that it is always around me every day of my life. I am really a very happy Catholic daughter even though I feel there is room for improvement in my faith. I promise to always strive to be the best Catholic daughter every day and to not feel arrogant about my faith. Thank you, Mother, for loving me so much, for taking care of me every day and for always interceding to Jesus for me. I love you very, very much. You mean so much to me.

Your Catholic Daughter.

7. Dear Mother of Perpetual Succour, a

About two weeks ago, my grandson went for a scope and I wrote a petition to you to protect and grant him a successful procedure and good test results. A big thank you for answering my prayer. The doctor said that except for a minor reflux problem, everything is fine and well. Thank you, Blessed Mother, and also for interceding to our Lord Jesus Christ, for His grace and protection for my grandson.

Your Loving Son.        

8. Dearest Mother Mary,

This thanksgiving letter is long overdue. Two years ago, around this time, my mother was admitted to the hospital for a bad infection on both her legs. After some treatment, the doctors informed us that one of her legs needed to be amputated. My mother was devastated and we were deeply saddened by their prognosis. As my mother was warded at TTSH, I walked over to Novena Church to pray for your intercession. I stood outside the Church as it was closed then but I could feel your love and presence as I prayed for a miracle. Many of our friends and relatives prayed for her recovery, too. Mother dearest, you heard our prayers. On Christmas eve, my mother was finally discharged from hospital after being admitted for more than a month. After many rounds of treatment, my mother’s legs began to show signs of healing. Today, she is so grateful that she is mobile and able to enjoy some independence. Thank you, dearest Mother for your intercession!

Your Loving Daughter.

9. Dearest Mother of Perpetual Help,

Thank you for your intercession for my husband. We came to Novena Devotion in August and asked for your help when he lost his job of 9 years. Despite a few disappointments in his interviews, we did not give up hope but continued praying for God’s mercy and ask for your intercession. We are so thankful to you, Mother, for hearing our pleas and praying for us. My husband will be starting his new job next week and we give thanks to you and our Lord for answering our prayers. May we continue to trust in God and ask for your intercession for strength and guidance.

Your Grateful Daughter.

10. Dearest Mother Mary,

Thank you for being with me today when I had the most anxious experience and pulling me out of it with your help. I left my laptop in the backseat of a Gojek car, and the next passenger who found it actually asked the driver to make a detour back to my workplace to return it. I was so anxious trying to reach the driver to retrieve my laptop, and both their kind actions really helped save me from a lot of anxiety and potential trouble with my company. I know, Mother, you were there to help me in this situation, and you resolved it so quickly for me. May the 2 kind-hearted persons be blessed with your protection as well. Thank you, Mother Mary for interceding for me all the time.

Your Most Grateful Daughter.

11. Dear Mother of Perpetual Succour,

I came a few months ago asking you to intercede for me so that my university application would be successful. This was my second attempt as my first one was unsuccessful. I started to worry as in the past few weeks some of my friends started to receive their emails but I didn’t. However, I continued to trust and pray to you at your shrine. A few days ago, I received the email saying my application was successful. I was overwhelmed with joy that I came for Mass to thank you on that day itself and I have come to realise how powerful your prayers really are! Thank you once again, Mother.

Your Grateful Son.
