TQ MM For Your powerful Intercession- 2016

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in August 2015. I delayed treatment and the cancerous lump grew aggressively from 3cm to 13cm within five months.

Meanwhile, I was being told by my catechism teacher uncle Stephen, about one famous chapel in Sungei Petani (the chapel of Immaculate Conception, Sg. Batu.), where many people experienced miracles and special encounters with Mother Mary.

My first visit to the chapel was in December 2015, the Feast Day of Our Lady of Immaculate Conception, during which I prayed for a miracle to cure my cancer.

At the end of February 2016, I was admitted to hospital due to the wound infection and constant pus discharge. The doctor arranged a CT scan for me prior to my chemotherapy treatment. I never imagined that I could be healed, at that point in time. With a 13cm x 9cm wound on my left breast and aggressive type of cancer, doctors would say that most probably the cancer cells had already spread to other places. I was very worried and felt hopeless at the same time. I prayed that during my CT scan, Jesus and Mother Mary would be with me. I felt at peace.

The day before I received my CT scan result, I visited the chapel again. I prayed and spoke with mom (Mother Mary). I said, I know that there are a lot of signs showing that I will be okay, but I just need your final assurance that I will be fine. Immediately after saying the prayer, I experienced the presence of Mother Mary. I felt so touched.

Despite the wound and the pain, the result was amazing. The cancer somehow stopped at one point, on the axillary node. It did not spread further to other organs. We were so happy with the result. I could feel that the Lord was and is always with me.

I was baptized on 28 February 2016, one day before my first chemotherapy. I had a lot of pain before the chemotherapy, it often disturbed my sleep. Amazingly after my first day of chemotherapy, my pain was all gone.

The Lord answered my prayers through the powerful intercession of Mother Mary.

According to the doctor, it would take weeks or months for the chemo medicine to take effect but amazingly the pain was gone on the first day. The treatment reacted pretty well and my wound closed completely after the 4th treatment. I finished my last chemo in July and second CT scan on August. The second CT scan result showed no trace of cancer cells! Praise the Lord and all Glory Be to the Lord.

I had my left mastectomy operation on 21 August and everything was fine. I could walk and eat two hours after my operation and I recovered very fast. A lot of people prayed for my speedy recovery. I never felt so strong and I know that my strength came from the joy of the Lord. Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ!

The past one year has been the toughest year in my life ever. A lot of things happened during my sickness. My family and friends were not by my side through bad times. At my weakest point where I had totally lost hope, Jesus never failed to comfort me and send the right people to me.

I thought it was too late and I was going to die. But God is never late, He is just right on time. He has a great plan for me I believe, and I am happy that I have finally returned to my King.

Now I have completed all of my treatments and I am glad to be able to live healthily again. All Glory and Honour to Our Lord Jesus for the gift of healing and hope!

I remember before and during my treatment, I used to visit the chapel frequently to talk with Mother Mary. It gave me a lot of strength to overcome my problems and fear, knowing that she was and will always be there with me and listens to me.

Thank you Mom (Mother Mary) for your powerful intercession. I do not know how to repay you for all the great things that you have done in my life, I pray that those who read my testimony will come to know and experience the love of Jesus through you.

I pray that all the people who come to you in this chapel regardless of whatever crisis they are facing, they will find comfort, love, peace and even healing for all of their illnesses. Amen.

(From the chapel book)

The wet, gloomy weather on the Sunday morning of 11th December 2016 mercifully gave way to sunshine by lunchtime. Parishioners from the Cathedral of the Holy Spirit and the Church of Divine Mercy, Penang, set out on a comfortable chartered bus at 3pm, reciting the Divine Mercy chaplet and sang hymns to Mother Mary along the way to Sungai Batu for the celebration of Holy Mass at 5.30pm, in observation of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception (which falls on 8th Dec annually).

There were already buses from Kuala Lumpur, Ipoh and Bukit Mertajam when we arrived. Thankfully, the new housing estate beside the Chapel provided ample parking. The by-road leading to the chapel was neatly decorated and the stage for mass was beautifully done up, with the procession statue of Our Lady resting at the base.

The celebrations started with the recitation of the rosary. Mass was celebrated by Father Nelson Joseph who in his homily, stressed that everyone of us had a role in building bridges in our relationship with others.

At the end of the mass, much to everyone’s delight, rosaries were distributed to a representative of each family present.

The procession statue of Our Lady adorned with multi-coloured roses, was taken in candle lit procession to the recitation of the rosary from the chapel to the public road. Fireworks added to the grandeur of the occasion.

Fellowship followed and once again we witnessed the generosity of the parishioners of the Church of Christ The King, Sungai Petani (the chapel comes under this parish).

This year’s feast day celebrations must have seen the largest crowd at the chapel to date. An estimated 2000 people were present almost double the number in 2015. The organizers rose to the occasion bringing in extra chairs at short notice. There was more than adequate seating space and even the distribution of food was well organized with more serving areas which meant shorter queuing time.

Plastic bottles filled with holy water were also distributed to the pilgrims for free and there was also a light performance by parishioners.

At the end of the celebration, as the crowd still lingered, a very brief hardly noticeable shower sprinkled its wet drops on those outside the canopy. With that shower of blessings, we all headed for home and arrived, joyful and safe.

Thank you Our Lady and Jesus. 

Amen.

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.

Amen.

The HAIL MARY – prayer for the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus Christ.

In the Catholic liturgical calendar the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary is celebrated annually on 7th October (since 1571). In honour of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the month of October is dedicated to the Most Holy Rosary.

It is the perfect time to commit to praying the beautiful prayer of the Holy Rosary daily, as a means of thanksgiving to Our Lady for her powerful intercessions on our behalf.

Praying the Rosary every day will help to bring peace in your life.  Apart from praying for our personal intentions, let us also all pray for PEACE in the WORLD!

What is a Rosary, you might ask. It is a Catholic prayer based upon the Bible that focuses on the events in the life of Jesus and Mary the Mother of Jesus.

For the readers of this post who are not familiar with the Rosary……Please click here to read more on ‘What Is A Rosary’ and ‘How To Pray The Rosary.’

The Rosary Promises illustrate the good things the Rosary does for individual souls.

Wishing everyone a blessed month of October.

Amen.
