  1. I have prayed many novenas for my alcoholic son and noticed a real improvement at Christmas. Today was his birthday and we put on a celebration for family and friends.
    My son really enjoyed himself and the company of old friends some of whom he had lost contact with due to his drinking,which led to him isolating himself.
    I contrast today with his birthday last year when he was so down and in the grip of addiction. He is now a different person with much to look forward to.
    Thanks be to God and to all the saints that I have asked to intercede for him.
    Thank you Lord. I know that you will continue to look after him and protect him!

  2. Thank you Father for protecting my unborn grandson Henry and keeping him healthy and getting good news from his MRI results that his brain is good and the excess fluid is gone.

  3. My Grandson Eric (33 yrs old) had stage 4 Colo-rectal Cancer that we were told was inoperable and could never be reversed – on Dec 11th he had surgery with Dr Lee at Albany Medical Center, Albany, NY because of Eric’s size the Dr could not use instruments but after a long surgery Eric is at this time cancer free and we are told that in a few months his colostomy should be able to be reversed. I feel this is a miracle and of course my prays and those who prayed with me have been answered

  4. Glory to Jesus and honour to Mary.
    God answered my prayers in this novena as follows:
    1. My immediate younger sister’s husband who’s been abroad for over 3 years returned to celebrate the Christmas with his family.
    2. Another of my younger sister, who had been separated from her husband for about 9 months, with the marriage almost ending, was reconciled with her husband.
    3. This 3rd Intention which was answered on Christmas eve is one that has been offered to God through several novenas since 2017. Although it wasn’t an intention for this novena, God made the insurance company which had failed to pay my husband for the repair of his vehicle (after his vehicle was ran into by a heavy duty vehicle) do so after a period of 22 months.
    Glory to Jesus!!!!
    Honour to Mary!!!

  5. Dear Lord thank you for answering my prayers as I now have a better relationship with my daughter in law. After a very strained time I finally feel at ease with her.
    Thanks be to God and his Blessed Mother.

  6. I prayed for reconciliation & healing between my friend and her daughter in law and they were able to spend Christmas Day together in a peaceful and respectful manner with hopes of their relationship to continue to slowly improve. Glory to God!
