Mary, My Intercessor


My prayer during one of the first Saturday novenas at the Shrine was for my knee to get well.

I had been experiencing pain during walking and, as far as I know, I do not have any illness that would connect to the pain on my knee. I also have a regular diet so I do not abuse my body nor my health. I didn’t know what was wrong with it. I also didn’t consult a doctor and I was scared because I’m only 47. I started to remember how my mom would complain about her legs but she’s already in her mid-60’s now.

Since I saw the box of petitions and thanksgiving prayers at the foot of Mama Mary, I decided to ask for healing from her, knowing she’s the number one apostle and intercessor. It may sound bad but it was kind of a test if my prayer will indeed be answered. I was also thinking how come a lot of people go to Baclaran for Our Lady of Perpetual Help’s intercession and not as many here at the Shrine, though I know in my heart that Mary is one and the same. She just has many titles.

So on that fateful day, I prayed for healing for my knee. Lo and behold, I think only a few days passed and the pain was gone. Until now, there is no pain. It’s been 3 months, I guess. And I think it’s just right for me to share this healing story with everyone who goes to the Shrine.

I am so happy my prayer for healing was answered. Praise God and thank you Mama Mary for your intercession. Truly, you answer our prayers and requests, whether big or small, in your time.
