A mother’s faith...
an outpouring miracles
through the intercession of St. Anne
Before the rooster can make its first announcement for a new day, when the world is still cover with darkness, when all you can hear is silence, in a small nook, a mother is whispering her prayer of thanks to the mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary: St. Anne. She  starts her day with the recitation of the Rosary while waiting for the first Holy Mass at 5:30a.m. She sees to it that every bead of her Rosary is for her children,praying for them to be good citizen in the community and for heaven. Day in and day out,she takes every trial, problem and difficulty with a light heart for she believes that St. Anne is her  inspiration ,her guide and her model in raising her children and in touching other people’s lives.
Truly, she becomes a good follower, a faithful servant, a humble being and an elixir of life. In her simplicityand in being an ordinary individual with a humble heart, she is a true witness of her FAITH. For every troubled heart,for an angry spirit and for a wavering faith,she calms them down by simply lifting everything to God through the intercession of St. Anne. With her smile and with her presence God is present!
She has her share of difficult tests, a faith tested on fire. First, her heart bleeds of her son whom she was not able to see for 23 years. Second, she was diagnosed of breast cancer in the year 2005. With these, she praises and thanks God for she shares in the Passion and suffering of Jesus Christ. She never questions God,never gives up her hope and she always believe in miracles.
She continues to live her life full of hope that one day she will see her son again,she asks God to ease her  pain caused by cancer. She continues to serve God through her service to the community,making herself available as “manabtan”. With a ruptured breasts,she is always in the Church with her daily novena,helping in the collection during Offertory, in her Dawn Rosary every 13th Saturday of the month and she takes everyday as a special day to serve.
On her last months,she storms heaven with prayers. Before she will bid goodbye to this world,before her eyes will finally come to its close and her body will start to wither. Barely,three months, God perform miracles to His lowly servant. March 2011,God links her back to her son,a discovery of his whereabouts is at hand. And before March ended,she was able to hold her son back to her arms.
With a smile on her face, she joyfully joined her Creator on June 14, 2011 with her loving  husband and her seven wonderful children and their family.
Indeed, God shows His mighty power and St. Anne is a great intercessor!
" And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him".                                                                      Hebrews 11:6
