Prayer of Solidarity for Yolanda Victims

Sharing this prayer from today's anticipated mass at Sanctuario del Sto. Cristo Parish.

God our Father, in faith, we acknowledge your care for us.
In hope, we trust in your divine providence.
In love, we invoke your help and guidance during these difficult days.

Grant eternal peace to those who lost their lives.
Embrace the children who died in their innocence.
Console those who are grieving.

Encourage those who suffer the destruction of their homes
and properties as their rise from the ruins and rebuild their future.

Bless all those who extend a helping hand to those in need of
food, shelter and clothing, and provide an assuring presence
to those who are lost and confused.

Let the Holy Spirit renew our land and people.

Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

A Touch from Above

June 02, 2013 – My Sunday rituals were put into a halt when we got a call from my uncle that Father Joey A. Faller, who is known for his gift of healing, will be back to visit my Lola. As some of you might know, my lola has been in the hospital for almost 5 months now. If you don’t know who Fr. Faller is, check out his life story here:
I know a lot of people would have to line up for hours just to see Father Faller, so without any second thoughts, I dropped everything and went straight to the hospital where my lola was.
He started to pray over lola who was very sleepy due to the strong meds, then he also prayed over my aunt, my mom and my cousin.

After giving me his blessing, he asked if he could see my hand. According to him, sudden “glitters” would appear if the Virgin Mary was making her presence felt. He did the same thing to my mom, my aunt and my cousin. Unfortunately, there were no signs or “glitters” on mine which made me a bit sad. As I asked him how come there were no "glitters" (pic below) he answered “parating palang”.

He only stayed for a few minutes and went on his way. He left us feeling blessed and spiritually healed. My encounter with Fr. Faller also created a big question in my mind, of what could “parating palang” mean? It has been days since he said those words and until now I'm still thinking about it. I'm not sure if I'll see him again but hopefully I will. Could it be God's plan to leave me hanging so I could figure it out for myself? 
I’m ending this post with a short prayer because I believe only He alone can help me find the answer “Lord please clear my mind and enlighten me so that I may follow your path. Mama Mary, come into my heart so that I may see what it is that I should do.”
I know that one day it will be revealed.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. Proverbs 3:5-6
I just realized today is his birthday -- Happy Birthday Fr. Joey! Thank you for touching our hearts =)
