Hail Mary... 万福玛丽亚

Hail Mary, full of Grace, help me find a nice parking space...

It was Rev. Sr. Rosalind who taught us when we have problem to find a parking space. I discovered you can call upon Mother's help in other situation also.

Elizabeth's baggage was whopping 35 Kg, 5 kg more than allowed as a student. She also have a hand luggage weighed 14.5 kg. She has to hold a book of more than 3 kg (pretending as a reading material) because there wasn't any more space to put in. My wife brought along a spare bag, just in case, to take home the extra items (if it cost too much as unaccompanied baggage),and send later by sea freight.

My wife an Elizabeth proceeded to the check-in counter. My wife told me to keep our fingers cross and pray.

Hail Mary, full of Grace, help us to get more luggage space... I prayed.

After ten minutes, it was done, no extra charges, no need to carry a 3-kg book.... all settled to our satisfaction.

How was it possible? Hail Mary full of Grace, the Lord is with you. Blessed are you among women, blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.........

(Translation of Anthony's comments}

I believed, I believed. Just the other day, my relative's daughter was 3 kg overweight, she was not allow a single kg extra... Her father was a Christian but did not pray...

Simon said: prayer is good. Prayer is surrendering oneself to God (through Mother Mary).
