Manaoag Church – Pangasinan

Mother Mary of Manaoag, thank you for the magical opportunity to visit you.  To have an audience with you was worth the sleeplessness.  I was speechless when I got near you.  I felt so blessed.  All I could feel was an overwhelming gratitude, especially when I got to touch you.  Again, thank you.

On the bus ride, I listed down already the things I would need your intercessions on.  But when I knelt, I felt different already.  I know you  still heard my prayers/wishes.

They say that the Lady of Manaoag help intercess your prayers. I went there along with three soon-to-be-lawyers, a doctor and a mom.  We had different intentions but we had one wonderful trip.

After the Mass, we went to the back of the altar to have a chance to touch the gown of the Holy Mother
