    I have looked for answers, and actually miracles have taken place.

    As I write this, his parents are getting ready to take him to a children’s Christmas eve service. Not something that has ever happened before. They don’t usually attend church.
    Also our unbaptized 20 year old grandaughter is on her way to attend Mass with her Catholic boyfriend and his family.
    I cannot explain the total joy and gratitude I am experiencing right now.
    These may seem like tiny miracles to some, but they are answers to many many prayers. All Praise and thanksgiving!!!

  40. Although this was not a specific intention of mine during this novena this blessing has been on my heart for a long time. A doctor at my OB/GYN spoke at our church’s women’s conference this past spring. She shared her life story with us…how she joined the Catholic faith & how her family has joined too & also how she used to perform abortions in her work but now fights for the lives of the precious babies despite conflict with her work. After hearing her story I had hoped to have her become my primary doctor since I am a patient with her work. When I found out that I was pregnant with my son in June I had asked my doctor’s office if I could switch & they had told me no & that I would stay with my same doctor. I was bummed but I let the thought leave my mind; however, not my heart. Earlier this week I learned that my then primary doctor was a supporter of abortions & read a horrifying article that she had published praising those that offer abortions & perform them. I reached out to the doctor who spoke at the conference asking if I could please have her become my primary since I was not comfortable with my current doctor. She responded to me right away telling me that yes, she would love to be my doctor! By the next day she had made the changes to my list of appointments going forward & she is now my primary. I feel so blessed to have been given this gift. God is good!! ????????❤️

  41. Thank you baby Jesus for answering my prayers. We have received a financial blessing with a liam that has allied us to take steps to financial freedom. My daughter was able to purchase her first car. We thank you for our health and keeping us safe. My daughter has established a good relationship with the father of her child. We have many things to be thankful for by praying this Novena. Amen!!!

  42. I have been so blessed,God has been with me as I had a terrible accident of falling down stairs and my brain was bleeding from both sides, they did emergency surgery, shaved my head, cut it open with tubes inserted for drainage, the Lord has been with me through this whole thing , the surgeon said I had a 50/50 chance of survival, or being a vegetable, and not to look for me to be out of the hospital till Christmas, but I’m home, not a full 100% yet but I’m doing great, and I know God is behind it all. So I want to thank my master for his work with me. I love you my precious God

  43. I asked for the Lord to give my children strength while in their difficult curriculums in collage…especially during their exams.
    The Lord helped them focus and push through hours and weeks of study with little sleep…
    They both got straight A s!
    Thank you Lord

  44. Although my nephew and his fiancé are not practicing Catholics, he is attending midnight mass with me as been our tradition, this is his decision with no mention of Church from me or anybody else.. And although we haven’t sold our house, we have had discussions and inspections for a very interested buyer. Most importantly I am more at peace and able to trust God and his Will for my nephew and me.
