For the past couple of weeks, something weird happened. Hmmm, maybe not weird, but something different. I have been going to church regularly. Ta-dah!!!! I attended a mass on a Sunday. I braved the crowd and went to Baclaran for the past three consecutive Wednesdays with a friend and to top it off, I went to Saint Jude Church and got all wet of Holy Water one Thursday last week. Cool huh!@!
You see, I am not much of a church-goer for quite sometime, count years! But I do go to church whenever I feel like it. Whenever I feel like asking for some divine intervention, whenever I feel like blessings were poured upon me and wanted to say thank you, or simply whenever I wanted to be really alone.
Recent experiences have been very enlightening to me. As I went to these churches, I’ve come to realize how much people prayed for their intentions and what they are all willing to do to make it realized. I was sooooo amazed at how determined some people are at Saint Jude to have their pens and papers blessed by the priest. I get so overwhelmed whenever I see people down on their knees, walking from the door of Baclaran church while holding their rosary and novena booklets. These two saints have been very popular to most Filipinos for being helpful to the needy and the hopeless.
A few days ago, a friend of mine told me some success stories on how these Saints have worked their magic on some people. Here in the
So many Saints to go to for different intentions. Somehow, it makes me wonder if we have almost all saints for everything, why do bad things still happen to people? God wants the best for all of us. But then again, we are free. And part of that freedom is that we are allowed to make choices on how we want to live our lives, whether wisely or not. God allows us to make the wrong choices because otherwise, we will not be truly free. After all, He never promised us a life free from troubles, He only promised us that He’ll be there for us, whenever we need Him.
May all of our prayers be answered. Have a Blessed day!
