Miracles do Happen!

All About Faith Add comments

After a little picnic in her school to celebrate her 5th birthday, I took my daughter and my mother to St. Pio’s chapel in Libis, Quezon City. I have told you about this chapel in my previous post. As you all know, my daughter is suffering from asthma. My mother on the other hand, has rheumatic heart disease. I believe in miracles and I have faith that God will heal my dear child and mother from the health problems they have. It may not be a drastic or on the spot healing, but I believe that miracles do happen. They do happen. :)

I prayed before God and asked St. Pio’s intercession for the pleas i have in my heart. I have a lot to pray for but I don’t forget to say thank you. Maybe it is a good practice to praise the Lord and thank Him for all the blessing He is giving us. The solemnity and serenity of the place really gave me a relax and happy feeling. I can stay there for hours just staring at the life size statues of Mama Mary, St. Joseph, Jesus and St. Pio. I will never get bored praying. If you think about it. There are a lot of things we need to pray for. No only for our personal needs but for the welfare of the people around us as well. :)

I let mama write her petitions and gave her time to pray, while I look after my daughter. I wasn’t able to tour the chapel in my first visit. My daughter happened to be a keen observer and she found areas that I would never find it wasn’t for her. She saw glowing candles through the glass walls of the chapel and she asked me to go there. I was able to find the door that led us to a little St. Francis chapel. We also found the office where we got roses to offer to the saint. My daughter enjoyed placing flowers on the vases. :)

Our wandering led us to a garden where we found statues of St. Pio, St. Francis and St. Anthony. I took a picture of Nonet with St. Anthony and I told her that she got her name from him. We also found an alley that led to a praying Jesus in the garden of Getsemani.

In the evening, outdoor lighting are turned on that adds beauty to the chapel.

It was really a day of prayers, fun and laughter! Of course, Nonet enjoyed so much that day. I took her to Eastwood after spending hours in the chapel. Well, it’s gonna be another story. I recommend that you visit the said chapel, too.

Ciao! :)
