Helen Xavier could hardly contain her joy and excitement when she called to relate her testimony after visiting the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception in Sungai Batu.
Although she had been there 4-5 years ago, this particular pilgrimage organised by her BEC from the Cathedral of the Holy Spirit was somehow different.
Helen had a couple of prayer requests for Mother Mary’s intercession. She prayed for all three of her nieces who were childless after several years of marriage.
The other prayer was for herself. For sometime now, she had been suffering intense cramps in her legs which resulted in excruciating pain. Every time this happened, she found that she was unable to walk and all she could do was cry until the pain subsided. Despite consulting a doctor and taking the prescribed muscle relaxants, there was very little relief for her.
So on this Sunday, 13th October 2019, she not only prayed for healing, she also took home some rose petals from the chapel.
The very next day, when she made a sudden turn to get up from a lying position, she felt a jolt of ferocious pain from her thighs to her toes. She could not walk and the pain made her cry. At that moment, she remembered the rose petals she had brought back from Sungai Batu. Somehow she managed to drag herself to get a glass of water and dropped a rose petal into it.
As Helen drank the rose water, she visualised Mother Mary there while praying. As she did so, the pain immediately disappeared. She described that she felt her ‘knotted veins were being untangled!’
She continued to pray and drink the rose water for three days. She managed to pass on the rose petals to her nieces. Since then, Helen Xavier has been free of the muscle cramps which had caused her so much distress. She shared her testimony with her BEC and it was they who encouraged her to give glory to God by repeating it to a wider audience!
Thank you Jesus! Thank you Mother Mary!
