Witness Your Healing through the Intercession Mother Mary!

An Invitation to Witness Your Healing through the intercession of Mother Mary. Please email your letters directly to Anton Luat,

Hello Ms. Cecilia Brainard
My name is Anton Luat and I am a student from St. Robert Catholic High School in Toronto, Canada. I've read your wonderful book on Mama Mary's Pilgrim Sites and I know________personally -- she is a good friend of mine. Your book on Our Lady has inspired me and my club mates at our Chaplaincy club to do a project for Mama Mary this coming May. 

We are planning to do a "Marian wall" where we will write letters to our beloved mother and place them on the said wall. We are currently gathering testimonies and stories from people who have been either healed or touched in some way by Mama Mary. Therefore, we would like to inquire if you would like to write a letter, sharing your experience at a Marian Shrine or if you've had any healing through Mary's intercession. 

Also, we encourage you to spread the word to others and if you know of people who've had any experiences connected with Mama Mary, we would be more than happy to add their stories and letters on the wall. Our goal for this project is to show proof of the presence of God and Our Lady in today's world. Our goal is to also spread Marian devotion in the community because Our Lady is not as known here unlike in the Philippines -- and I thought that it would be a good idea to share the faith and to let people know more about Mary.

The letter can be as long as you want and if you have any friends who have had experiences with Mama Mary, you can tell them to write as well and we'll be more than happy to put it on the wall.
We hope to hear from you soon!
Thank you and take care
God Bless,
Anton Luat

 Profoundly Marian and beautifully written by the contributors as these are their personal experiences! To our fellow devotees and would-be devotees of the Blessed Virgin Mary, you will surely fall in love with "Magnificat: Mama Mary's Pilgrim Sites" and love Our Blessed Mother even more. - Bishop Leopoldo C. Jaucian, SVD, DD, Bishop of Bangued, Philippines"

The Magnificat has always been a testament to God’s paradoxical dealings with his people. This book assembles a tableau of witnesses to how a fleeting visit with Mary can turn into a life-changing introduction to her Son. Through their stories the author offers their readers the distinct possibility of setting the stage for a personal, if vicarious, epiphany. - Father Dionisio M. Miranda, SVD , President. University of San Carlos

Running as a leitmotif in all the essays in this book is the writers’ palpable love for Mama Mary. Each writer has undergone a change in his or her life or outlook following a visit to a Marian site. Some may have experienced a “miracle,” or felt consoled and renewed; others a deepening of spirituality, or an epiphany, an insight into the divine. Although we know that Jesus is the only Way to the Father, it is our belief in the power of Mary’s intercession to her Son, borne out of the Bible’s Cana story, that makes us all turn to Her, whom Her divine Son will never refuse. Kudos to Cecilia Manguerra Brainard for putting together an engaging collection of stories that magnify the humble handmaid of the Lord. - Erlinda E. Panlilio, Writer and Editor
