A Very Special Love Letter

I admire people who are prayerful, and in that same level, are living up to the Christian way of life.  I wish I could do the same.

A nun, who used to play the guitar for our choir group told me that singing a prayer is like praying 10x.  It takes some amount of emotions to sing, and I think that makes singing and praying more special.

In my case, grief and special petitions warrant a different kind of prayer – I write down my prayers.  Most of the letters, I keep; quite a few, I would seal in an envelope to be read exclusively by the Pink Sisters, and spiritually or figuratively – the thoughts in those letters, I offered to Him.  Yes, the Dragon Lady (that would be me, or if you want to call me a sinner, so be it) also need the support of a community known as the Holy Spirit Adoration Sisters. Their church and convent in Tagaytay City has been one of my sacred sanctuaries over the years.  Secret out!  If you’re curious, then why not pay them a visit?  It’s worth a try.  =)

Last month, BFD and I visited the Adoration Convent/Chapel .  The gratefulness I felt compelled me to write a letter to the Lord, through the Pink Sisters.  In the not-so-distant past, I thought I was heading for a life of single blessedness (which I gladly accepted, to the point that I was living that life already), but the Lord sent me another blessing that changed most of my thoughts about how I intend to live my life.  About two weeks after that visit, I received a beautiful letter which talks about love and prayers from Sister Mary Scholastica of the Pink Sisters.  The thoughts are too beautiful that I’m moved to share it here, and I hope this letter reaches out to those who might need it most.

Getting there:  Here’s a map – grabbed from http://www.tsikot.com.

For commuters: There are buses, jeepneys from Manila and Batangas plying Aguinaldo Highway – a major highway in Cavite.
The chapel is a well-known landmark in Tagaytay City. When in doubt, ask around for directions from the locals (‘Pink Sisters’).
