The night we traveled to Tanauan,
Batangas, we were already experiencing
the strong winds brought by the supertyphoon
Mangkhut. Still, we pursued
our mission knowing it was dangerous
to travel at that time. We prayed the
Rosary to ask Our Lady to guide us.
God is so powerful that, at the time of
our travel until our arrival, the weather
was calm. The next day, the heavy rains
persisted as the typhoon strengthened.
We had a successful mission! The
parishioners stepped up for a Decade.
To this day, we are in awe of the
miracle that God performed that day.

I was rear-ended in April 2018, which
left me with POTS (Postural Orthostatic
Tachycardia Syndrome) which completely
collapsed this 31 year old wife
and mother of four. I could hardly walk,
breathe, think clearly and my heart
raced to the point of fainting. This
was a call to deepen my faith, which
had taken a long hiatus. I begged God
to help me really know Him. My mother
had complications from surgery and
she held on in a coma for one month.
I was fighting for a miracle to save her.
Finally, I placed her in the arms of God
and I was carried through the pain. Part
of me died. Mom left us on August 11 -
feast of St. Philomena! Two months
after my mom went Home, hurricane
Irma hit our area. It was a huge miracle
that our tiny wood framed house was
protected. The water stopped 1 inch
below the door jam. Another miracle!
I entrusted everything to God and He
took care of us. My health struggle after
the accident continued for nearly a
year. During this time, I felt compelled
to turn to Our Lady. Mary helped me to
be closer to God. I am slowly recovering
physically, and my soul is being healed.
I thank you, Living Rosary, for all your
prayers which clearly have been and
continue to be answered. < Aubrey

This is Nancy Perfas, one of our
members, who was afflicted with
breast cancer. She wrote a testimonial
in Filipino that she was miraculously
healed through the holy oil of Saint
Philomena. We will mail you her
handwritten letter and the translation
for it as soon as possible.

Before contacting you in 2015, I began
to pray the Rosary and wear the Scapular.
I was not Catholic. Through God’s Grace
I was brought in full communion with
the Church. I made and live my total
consecration. I stand for everything
the world is against. In my work arena,
certain people were bent upon doing
evil. It has been a great trial for me. I
interviewed for a new job which pays
less and was accepted. I am happy
and relieved. With Rosary beads in my
hand and the most powerful Woman
in the universe as my Mother, I know
I will thrive in accordance with the
Lord’s plan for me. < Child of Mary >
