It's been years since I first shared my enduring faith and love for Our Lady, Mary Mediatrix Of All Grace Lipa Batangas. My mom introduced me to this belief that with continuous prayer, love for others and faith, miracles do happen and prayers are going to be answered. Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church, Lipa City was a miracle that happened in my life. When I was younger, my faith was not as solid as it is today. I was young, I was out and about like a typical single lady. When I got married, I saw the reality of life and I didn't wait for hardships to come in the way just to say a prayer. Being a mother is a task filled with great responsibilities. And most of the time, I ask for strength and wisdom so I can nurture and guide my family to goodness.
My visit to Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church, Lipa City went on every year or at least twice or 3 times a year. My next visits was never about asking for more, I go back to give thanks for the blessings being showered at my whole family, including my parents and my siblings. My recent visit was to give praise and thanks for this gift of life given to me and my family.
At home, I continue to pray to Our Lady, Mary, of Mediatrix Of All Grace. She is a Mother to me. There are times when I dream of her and the feeling is just unexplainable. Since my first visit, I've surrendered everything to Her and to The Almighty.
Faith... Faith is based on love, hope, patience, trust, compassion and sacrifice. As long as we know to work these virtues in life, miracles will happen and prayers are going to be answered.
