I would love to share a little story with you. Christmas 2002 I had just finished my 3 month term of chemo which was quite severe. I had no idea whether or not it was successful to the point where I would require no further treatment.
I can remember staring out the window thinking. I looked around the garden and spotted the minature rose bushes that I had planted about 2 years previous. In my despair I asked Our Lady to send me a rose from one of them if everything was going to be ok.
Sure enough over the next days I watched 3 buds develop of which two died and one went on to open into a beautiful pure white little rose. Needless to say I left it there and eventually cut it dried and pressed it as a reminder. Later on in January I received news that the tumor had dissolved completely from the 8cm x 7cm that it originally was.
The miracle, however, seems to have continued. The minature rose since that time has always been in flower through the winter storms and the clod and even the snow. I am looking out on it now and there are three beautiful white roses on it now. We have had a white Christmas and all here but nothing has effected them. Not as many blooms as during the summer but blooms none the less.
Only recently I remembered that when I planted them in 2001, I planted 2 white ones in honour of Our Lady’s Purity and two red ones in honour of Our Lords Passion. I sprinkled them all with Holy Water so that each time I would gaze on them I would be reminded of the Purity of Mary and the Passion of Our Lord.
Looks like Our Blessed Mother has through her all powerful and never failing intercession has obtained immense graces.
