Lourdes Mary - When I am afraid - 2012

It was sometime in 2012 that I visited the Chapel of Immaculate Conception in Sungai Batu with my sister Rita, her husband, my mother and son. We had come to know of the wonders happening there.

Moreover, I was seeking answers to the many problems I had which were making me anxious and afraid. I especially prayed for three things which were greatly affecting my peace of mind.

1. My second son Jason was jobless and I was having anxious nights worrying about him when he stayed out late with friends.

2. My eldest son, Jeffrey, was still single and I had been desperately praying for him to get a good Christian bride.

3. I hold a government job, which at that time was causing me a lot of stress, anxiety and fear. I also knew that it was practically impossible to get out of that situation without giving up the job itself.

I poured out my troubles and surrendered it all to Jesus and Mother Mary.

The following morning after I returned to my hometown in Ipoh, I used some flowers from the chapel to bathe in readiness for work. All of a sudden a very bright light flashed across me and I fell very heavily on to the floor. I could not move and could not speak but I was conscious and aware of everything around me. I tried to call my mother but no sound came out of me.

Somehow, after five minutes, I managed to get on my feet. I felt strangely different.

I told my mother that I was struck by a light. My hand was cut during the fall and I was bleeding, despite that, I managed to report to work. My colleagues sent me to hospital where my wound was attended to. Inspite of the hard fall, there were no fractures and even though my blood pressure was very high, the doctor assured me that I did not have a stroke.

1.In the same year after our visit to the chapel, Jason was offered a good job and moved away to a better environment.

2.The following year in 2013, Jeffrey married a Catholic girl who is everything I desired in a daughter-in-law.

3.In that same year in 2013, my name was topmost for an automatic transfer to another town away from the toxic situation that I had prayed for. My current work is not only more peaceful, I have the added bonus of having a Catholic church next to my current workplace!

On December 27th, 2017 my family and I made a return trip in thanksgiving for the many blessings and graces we received through the intercession of our Blessed Mother!

Rita Arokiasamy & Irathaia Dass 2012-3 - And receive from him whatever we ask 1 John 3-22

In 2012, I drove to the Chapel of Immaculate Conception at Sg. Batu with my wife, Rita and her family after hearing some ‘wonderful things’ which were happening there. The trip was more out of curiosity as I did not have any serious ailment.

However, I did have a niggling problem with a numbness of my hand. I had told no one about this, not even my wife. I prayed about this issue at the chapel.

About two to three days after our return home to Ipoh, I realized that I was no longer bothered by the numbness I had before and I continue to be free of the problem even till today!

Thank you Jesus! Thank you Blessed Mother!

Sometime in 2012 or 2013, my husband, Iraithaia Dass, our son and I returned to the Chapel of Immaculate Conception at Sg. Batu for the 3rd time, to offer thanksgiving to Our Blessed Mother.

We were about five minutes away from the chapel when my son realized that we had forgotten to bring flowers and candles. We decided to drive back to Sungai Petani to get them.

As we made an about turn, we were overwhelmed by a very strong smell of roses which filled the car. At that moment, we felt the presence of Our Mother!

After getting our flowers and candles, we hardly contained our excitement as we related to Francis, the caretaker, of the experience we had, even before we reached the chapel!

Thank you Jesus! Thank you Blessed Mother!

Mass on 10 Dec 2017

The Chapel of Immaculate Conception, Sg. Batu, was overflowing with faithful believers to celebrate the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary on 10 December 2017. A mass in Tamil and Mandarin was said, followed by a candlelight procession. Thereafter the happy crowd gathered for a fellowship before leaving for home.

We thank Our Lady for the good weather that day, and for her powerful intercessions on our behalf.

God bless.

 

Our Lady’s Hour of Grace

The Feast of the Immaculate Conception is on 8th December. In 1947, Our Blessed Mother gave us the Hour of Grace, to be observed on 8th December.

“….During the Hour of Grace, many spiritual graces would be granted. The most hard-hearted sinners will be touched by the grace of God.” The Blessed Mother promised that whatever a person asked her for during this Hour of Grace (even in impossible cases) would be granted to them, if it was in accordance with the Will of the Eternal Father.

THE REQUEST OF OUR BLESSED MOTHER FOR THE HOUR OF GRACE:

  1. Day and time of “Hour Of Grace”: 8th December – Feast of the Immaculate Conception. . .to be 12 noon till1:00 p.m. (one full hour of prayer).
  2. During this hour the person making the “Hour of Grace”, either at home or in Church, must put away all distractions. (Do not answer the telephone, or answer any doors, or do anything but totally concentrate on your union with God during this Special Hour of Grace.)
  3. Begin the “Hour of Grace” by praying Psalm 51 three times with outstretched arms.
  4. The rest of the “Hour of Grace” may be spent in silent communication with God, meditating upon the Passion of Jesus, saying the Holy Rosary, praising God in your own way or by using favorite prayers, singing hymns, or meditating upon other Psalms.

Our Lady, Pray For Us.

Amen

 

The Feast of the Immaculate Conception falls on 8th December, which celebrates the solemn belief in the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. (To read more about this feast day, please click here and here).

First solemnized as a Holy Day of Obligation in 1708, it is celebrated with Holy Mass, processions and community gatherings in honour of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Here at the Chapel of Immaculate Conception, Sg. Batu, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary will be celebrated with a mass (in Tamil and Mandarin) on Sunday, 10th December at 5.30pm.

In some countries like Panama, 8th December is observed as Mother’s Day in honour of the Our Lady and is a national holiday.

In Lyon, France, 8th December is also celebrated as the Festival of Lights, during which, tribute is paid to the Blessed Virgin Mary for sparing the city from plague in 1643. A solemn procession makes its way to the Basilica of Fourviere on that day, to light candles and give offerings in the name of Our Lady. The event thus commemorates the day Lyon was consecrated to the Virgin Mary.

Our Lady is well-loved and in the words of the Holy Father, Pope Francis, “Let us not tire from learning from Mary, of admiring and contemplating her beauty, of letting ourselves be guided by her, she who leads us always to the original source and fullness of authenticity: infinite beauty, that of God, revealed to us in Christ, Son of the Father and Son of Mary.”

On this special day, and everyday, let us all turn to Our Lady, Mother of God, to pray for her intercession and protection and invoking the gift of peace in every aspect of the world as it is today.

Also, to thank the Blessed Virgin Mary for her motherly love and for helping to intercede in our many prayer intentions.

Our Lady Pray For Us.
