Just before going back back to chaotic Manila from Mt. Malarayat, Tutubi and his officemates decided to drop by Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church.
Chaos of vehicles trying to get out of the church compound after the 12nn Sunday mass schedule.

I'm Rudy, I'm religious, i can say that Our Lady of Mediatrix of all nation is really true becouse I experinced her comfort during the time of my illness and i was curred by praying rosary and asking her intercession and that's not all during my birthday last april 2007 of evening, Mother Mary appeared to me in my dream and she introduce herself to me, she said I'm Our Lady of mediatrix of all nation and she ask me to spread her name to the world after that i feel different because how can i spread her name all over the world, I'm simple human and I don't know her title because that time it's new to me that title of Mother Mary.After my dream I visited the church together with the brothers and I bought a picture of Our Lady of mediatrix which this picture is really what I saw in my dream,even the color of her background and her image in my dream is really the same what picture i bought in that church in Lipa, until now this picture is in under my care and every time i see her im very happy, sometimes they like this picture,yes I lend them but during the day that our lady is not in my room I feel something is lacking. for those who will read this I'm not forcing you to believe in me, I just want to share what i experienced and the graces i recieved from her intercession. if you have some comment to me or something you want to know, you can email me in firstname.lastname@example.org or visit me in my FB email@example.com Thanks and God bless you all. Our Lady of mediatrix of all nation pray for us.
