Thanksgiving – 9 Apr 2022

1. Dearest Mother Mary,

I asked you to help me find a job and I got a job that helps my family and also other people. I have managed to close a deal this week and I know that it is you who have helped and guided me. Thank you, dearest Mother.

Your Loving Son.

2. Dear Mother,

The recent years have been an uphill battle and long seasons of trials. There were so many moments of despair and disappointment that I can never forget how much pain I have suffered. I went from the highs of life to my lowest that I could never have imagined within a week. In my moments of heartbreak, the lost moments and the moments of resentment and pain, you were always with me, Mother. Thank you for interceding for each and every single of my prayers to your Son, for he has shown me His mercy and power. Thank you for praying with me, restoring whatever I have lost in the recent years. Thank you for holding me so close to you and letting me have this steadfast faith and leading me back to your Son. I love you with all my heart, Mother Mary.

Your Grateful Child.

3. Dearest Mother of Perpetual Succour,

Thank you for answering my prayer. We had been trying for a baby for almost 3 years and it has finally happened. I am experiencing morning sickness but I am only glad that God has made me worthy to be a mother. It had been a painful long wait with so much medical intervention. However, Mother Mary, you did not let me down. Thank you for praying for me and blessing me with this baby. I am really grateful to you.

Your Loving Daughter.

4. Dearest Mother Mary,

Thank you for all the wonderful blessings you have showered on my family. Mother, thank you for praying to your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, during my cancer treatment. Thank you for giving my husband the mental support and strength to look after the family. Thank you for being there for my son during his examination.

Your Grateful Daughter.

5. Dear Mother of Perpetual Help,

Thank you for interceding to our Lord Jesus to bring us a tenant with a good profile for our house with a good rental amount. This is really God sent as the profile of the tenant is what we were fervently praying for and we know that the Lord answered our prayers.

Your Loving Children.

6. Dear Mother Mary,

My child is having ADHD and has trouble sitting still or following instructions. He wanted to become an altar server and it was so hard at times due to his condition, as well as the pandemic which delayed their training and service. Despite all that, he is always so keen and eager to serve. I came to your shrine to ask for your help, and as always, you heard my prayer. He finally became an altar server and started to have some roles too. Though he is still unable to sit still and fidgets frequently, every time I see him at the altar, I am overwhelmed with gratefulness for the wonders the Lord has done. My son is not perfect but his presence reminds me of God’s perfect love and our Blessed Mother’s tireless intercession for us. I know for sure it could not have happened without your intercession, Mother. The other day, he told me that he often thought of killing himself because he feels tired of living and is constantly getting scolded. That shocked me and made me realise how much wrong we have done him while we thought we were helping him. I am thankful to God for revealing his thought before it was too late. Mother, I know you have been journeying with us and helping us, too. My son has been coming to Church and the Novena with us since he was a baby, and I know he is always watched over by the Lord and by you.

Your Grateful Daughter.

7. Dear Mother Mary,

My autistic son completed his studies, National Service and worked for the past 10 years. What more can I say but a big thank you from the bottom of my heart to you and your Son, Jesus, for looking after him all these years. I am indeed very grateful to for answering all my prayers.

Your Loving Daughter.

8. Dear Mother of Perpetual Help,

Thank you for all the blessings you have bestowed on my family. My 8-month old grandson recently went for his medical check-up and was confirmed by the doctor that the three holes in his heart have been fused. We thank you for your intercession and God’s mercy.

Your Catholic Son.
