When the dark clouds come rolling by,

Sending waves that touch the sky,

Tossing your boat, in the stormy tide of life,

You cried out “O Lord, do not leave me in vain,’

For you have been shunned, a leper and a misfit,

By your very own as in days of old.

Welcoming death you open your arms,

To embrace it,

But the good Lord, full of love and mercy,

Sends his grace and his strength,

To let you bear fruit, in abundance,

To be his missionary and carrier of the Good News,

Touching the hearts and the lives of people,

To put back the smile, to wipe away the tears,

That every heavy heart labored in agony,

Will seek His love and divinity,

His mercy that stretches out from the cross at Calvary.

I know because I have walked my Delarosa with him.

I was a sinner and God in His Mercy called me to accept Jesus Christ as my saviour. After accepting Him in the year 1994, I became the beloved Child of God.
God is always with me. When I need help I call on to Him and many, many of my prayers have been answered. Even though aches and pains and the misery of the world come my way, I always experience joy when I receive Jesus in Holy Communion. Holy Mass is healing and I love to go for mass. I would encourage everyone to go to daily mass and experience the love and mercy of God.
I thank God for calling me to be a Catholic.

For over two years I had felt several lumps in my breasts that were sometimes painful. Incredibly I ignored them. In 2014, a mammogram done in Gleneagles Medical Centre revealed a total of seven lumps!

Filled with dread and fear, I attended mass in CDM during Holy Week focusing on the cross as Father Martin had urged us to do. I have often felt the power and presence of God in CDM. This time, I was especially frightened over the prospect of a surgical operation. As I was crying and praying to the Divine Mercy for healing, I noticed a strange blue hue had fallen over the cross.

Shortly after that, I had to see the doctor for a follow-up appointment. The doctor performed a physical examination on me and imagine my shock and surprise when no lumps could be felt! I was given the all clear!

I bless and thank the Divine Mercy for hearing and responding to my prayers. Thanks

When I prayed for my son who was studying for the priesthood in the seminary, the Lord heard and answered my prayers.

In 2005, my son gave me the Divine Mercy prayer book and requested me to say this prayer daily at 3:00 p.m. I prayed daily in the morning & evening but I did not say the Prayer of Divine Mercy.

Then, in 2007, when my son was pursuing his studies for the priesthood in the Singapore seminary, he asked for my prayers again. As per his request, from that day onwards, I started to pray the Divine Mercy prayers for him daily at 3:00 p.m. until the day he was ordained. Yes, the Lord heard my prayers and on 29th August 2011, my son was ordained as a priest.

There were no words to describe the happiness and the joy I felt on that particular day. FYI, he is none other than your parish priest, Fr Martin. My prayers of thanksgiving goes to the Divine Mercy.

On the 14/2/2015, I attended Mass at the Church of Divine Mercy, Penang in conjunction with the World Day of the Sick. I received the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick besides the Eucharist. When Rev Fr Martin walked towards me for the anointing, I felt the Lord’s divine presence. My heart was telling me that it was the Lord and not Father Martin coming to meet me. I just knew it was Him.

Suddenly, I felt unworthy and didn’t dare look at His face whilst the prayers were being said together with the anointing. I felt lost in a Divine embrace as though there were only two of us and no one else.

After the anointing, as Father Martin walked away, I started to sob uncontrollably. I wept and wept for my suffering as I recalled Fr Martin’s homily that Jesus is weeping with me. He must have touched the core of my being as I certainly did not plan to cry at all when I arrived at CDM. It was a strange and yet beautiful experience which deepens my desire to love Jesus more and more.
