  1. I am really thank God for answering my prayer for getting our holy marriage by our Parish Priest this month September 12 , 2022 . I thanked all of you especially you for sending us this Novena. Thank you and Phrase the Lord.

  2. I have been praying nonstop for a daughter who experienced infertility early in her marriage for almost 5 years, had surgery and was then blessed with a son, then more infertility and surgery, had a miscarriage, more infertility and more surgery. She just told me today they are expecting again! Praise God!! His timing is always perfect.
    Now to continue to pray for a safe pregnancy.

  3. During the novena of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary I found my self becoming quite overwhelmed one day during one of the days prayers. As is often the case during a time of prayer you can suddenly find yourself being faced with a question that can sometimes be unrelated but it’s just the way the Holy Spirit seems to lead you. I found myself suddenly faced with a question about….what did it actually mean to fully surrender to God and how that would in reality impact on me and if I fully surrender what of me would I even recognise what of the me that I knew as myself would even be left. This question started to generate in me a great deal of distress and anguish as I pondered and worked through the prayerful questioning. At the end of the prayer time I felt very emotional and quite anxious about the kind of thought process that that days novena prayer had generated. Well I also engage every day with the “my Catholic life” app and read the daily gospel reflections. About 10-15 minutes after praying that days novena prayer I went on to the daily gospel reflections and there it was the daily gospel was about surrendering to God and the reflection answered my questions and I found myself with a greater sense of understanding what it means and a great calm. God has been leading me down a path just recently of one of trust and surrender and that day the Holy Spirit led me into a spiritual discourse and provided the answer within a heartbeat. What a blessing. God never misses an opportunity to give us what we need…. We just need a willing heart and the desire to surrender to the most holy will of God and he will do the rest.

I prayed with the little faith I could muster to be able to meet a deadline, one I was pretty sure I wasn’t going to meet, and was prepared to wait a whole year for another opportunity…and quite late in the night that same day, I got a call with the good news that I made the deadline to take part in my almost 8years-in-waiting convocation. I knew my Mother Mary had done it again for me; she had shown me again that it is truly a thing unheard of that I would implore her help and be left forsaken.
