Good morning Sisters, Personnels, Friends, and fellow children of Mother Francisca.

Hello! I’m Bea from Grade 10 – St. Dominic. I’m here to give a witness speech about Mo. Francisca’s Intervention in my life. Honestly, nung na hesitant ako. Why? Because in the next few minutes, I’m about to tell you my personal encounter with God through the help of Mo. Francisca. This life-changing event happened a couple of years ago and only my family, and my closest friends knew it.

January 27, 22015 – That was the last day of exam and umaga palang nakararamdam na ako ng pain in my lower abdomen. I thought my monthly visitor will just visit me again pero hindi pala. The entire day namimilipit lang ako sa sakit, di ko na alam gagawin ko to ease the pain. My mom is a doctor and I told her “Ma, hindi ko na po kaya. Magpapaconfine na po ako.” And at 6 pm, I was rushed to the hospital. Akala naming usual abdominal pain or stomach ache lang. Para makasigurado, nagpa-ultrasound ako and doon nakita na there’s huge space near my ovary. As in parang fluid lang and it’s not normal. So the doctor advised na magpa-CT scan ako para malaman kung ano talaga yun. So, I got discharged the day after.

January 30, 2015 – As early as 8 am nagpa-CT scan ako. It took around 30 minutes I guess. Then after lunch, pumasok ako. Despite of all the pain, pumasok ako, isang subject na lang, pinasukan ko pa. Ganon kasi akong klaseng student. Tsaka stargazing kasi. My classmates witnessed yung tatayo lang ako ng chair halos umiyak pa ako sa sakit. Yung tipon mula sa classroom naming hanggang info, 30 minutes ko nilalakad with matching iyak pa yan. Kahit sila naiyak nalang kasi literally, the struggle is real. That afternoon, sinundo ako ng parents ko. Nakuha na nila yung result and nakausap na nila yung surgeon ko. Pagsakay ko palang ng kotse sabi na agad ni mommy, “Ooperahan ka na.” As simple as that. Isa lang nasabi ko. Sabi ko “weh?” pero behind that weh is a fear of dying. Yun agad.

January 31, 2015 – Kinausap na ako ng surgeon ko and I was diagnosed with ovarian cyst. Kailangan na talaga tanggalin kasi 8 cm na ito at kapag umabot ng 10 cm, puputok na ito at magiging cancer. 4 pm that day, nakaconfine na ako sa East Avenue Medical Center.

February 01, 2015 – nandoon sa room lahat ng relatives ko all the way from Nueva Ecija. So nag-uusap kami. Yeah may mga jokes and my cousin even said “Feb na, march 21 concert na ng ID. Pagaling na.” lahat ng encouraging words nasabi na ata nila sa akin at nakangiti lang ako. My lolo from my mother’s side call me right at that moment, siya kasi yung as in pinaka-kaclose ko. Sabi niya, “Apo, wag mo kakalimutan magdasal. Nandiyan lang Siya.” And right at that momento, umiyak ako. Hindi lang ako, but my mom cried too. That was the first time na umiyak siya dahil sa kondisyon ko. The tension in the room was felt. Lahat kami natahimik na lang. So, at exactly 12 pm sinundo na ako ng mga nurse para dalhin na sa operating room. They injected me an antibiotic and believe it or now, 6th floor palang sumusuka na ako sa nerbyos tapos 1sat floor pa yung operating room. Then, I got operated. The operation took 3 hours . And they removed 2 cysts, my right ovary, my right fallopian tube, and my appendix.

February 04, 2015 – I was discharged from the hospital and I went back to school on February 11, 2015 to cope up in all activities I”ve missed.

February 25, 2015 – I went back to my OB for my follow-up check up and did transrectal ultrasound and there we find out that my left ovary has 12 remaining cyst, 1 cm in size. So hindi pa pala ako fully healed kasi my 12 pa. I was about to take pills but my mom refused because it might have an effect on me when I get older. So, wala akong tinake na kahit anong meds. In short, bahala na. My next check –up will be on August pa. In the span of 6 moneths, and dami pang pwedeng mangyari. Yung 12 ko na cyst pwede pang lumaki and worst, pwede pa ako maoperahan ulit. I as so scared to any possibilities na pwedeng mangyari. Sabi ko nalang, “Lord ikaw nap o talaga ang bahala.”

Maybe now, you’re wondering kung ano yung intervention sa akin ni Mo. Francisca. So here it is.

Month of August, Mo. Francisca Month. During our class in CLE. Our CLE teacher, Miss Mendoza asked us to write our prayer intention through the intercession of Mo. Francisca and drop it the prayer box. So nagbakasakali ako nab aka magwork nga. I wrote my intention with the exact words, “Lord, grant me complete healing. Please. I Know that through Mo. Francisca, I will be healed.” And after that, every night before I sleep, I always pray to Him for my complete healing and after my personal prayer will always be the Prayer for Mo. Francisca. Consistent ko ginawa yun. Every night. Walang patid. Kasi yun na lang yung pinanghahawakan ko. My faith and trust in Him is all I have. And God heard my prayers. I’m telling you, it’s 100% effective.

August 23, 2015 – I went back to my OP to see what happened. Kung lumaki ba yung cyst or worst, kung ooperahan nab a ako. Surprisingly, all cysts were gone. Walang marka na para bang walang nangyari. Lumabas ang result, normal ovary, 6 months ago, polycystic ovary yun. Yung 12 cysts nay un bigla na lang naglaho.

My mom and my OB, both doctors, hindi makapaniwala sa result. Walang meds kahit ano. Science can never explain what happened.

Hearing the result turned my sadness into joy. Turned my worries into constant happiness. Dun ko talaga nasabi na “In my life where everything was wrong, something finally went right.” Because God, Siya yung pinakatamang aspeto ng buhay ko. My compass, my northern star, and my anchor, Mo. Francisca is indeed powerful more than what we think. Mo. Francisca is God’s blessing to us. Through her, mas napabilis yung hiniling ko kay God. Her help is one of the greatest blessing that I’ve received in my entire life and my life will never be enough to thank her dahil inilapit niya ako sa Diyos.

This miracle is really a life-changing one. In times of trials, just remember na nandiyan lang Siya, handing tumulong. God will always provide. Lahat ng hinihiling natin sa Kanya ay ibibigay niya sa atin sa tamang oras, tamang sitwasyon, at tamang pagkakataon. Just have faith.

Mother Francisca, intercede for us.

Thank you and God bless us always!
