梳邦再也圣母 Our Lady of Subang Jaya
过后，我们会见了该教堂的主任彭睿明神父（Fr. Raymond Pereira). 他很热情的邀请我们到他的办公室，与我们分享了这个圣母态像的奇迹故事。
Another Mother Mary's miracle event taking place in St. Thomas More Church, Subang Jaya, Selangor recently. About 3 years ago, picture of our Lady appeared on pieces of glass at Subang Jaya Medical Center, about 2 kms away. (See old posting Mother Mary at SDMC, Subang Jaya)
It was circulated in the social media, newspapers that many saw the statue of Mary turning her head, smiling, tearing ....
I received calls from outstation friends wanted to find out more of it.
Yesterday afternoon, Friday 16, my wife and I, together with another friend, went to St. Thomas More Church in Subang Jaya, to get more information about this miraculous statue of Mother Mary.
This is our first visit to this church which is situated in an industrial area of Subang Jaya. It is a modern church with comfortable seating and peaceful and quiet ambiance.
The miraculous statue of Mary (Our Lady of Lourdes) is placed in a grotto built outdoor besides the church entrance.
We saw about 30 devotees reciting Rosary in front of the grotto. Curiosity brought us standing closer to the statue and taking a long good look at the face of the statue. The statue of Mother Mary looks beautiful and serene ... but no smiling at us, no turning head ...
We sat down on the chairs provided to recite the Rosary on our own. Devotees continue to stream in ...
Later, we met Fr. Raymond Pereira, the Parish Priest of the Church. He is a Marian priest who has a child-like simplicity of great love and devotion towards Mother Mary.
He shared with us his wonderful personal story of encounters and miraculous happenings on the statue of Mary.
Fr. Raymond started building this grotto immediately after his transfer to this church in June. It was officially opened on Oct 7, Feast of the Holy Rosary, when the statue of Mother Mary was placed in it. Then some miraculous events taken place immediately.
He and many parishioners saw the head of the statue turning, eyes open wider when Rosaries are being recited. At times, Fr. was able to communicate with Mother Mary.
Mother Mary told him "pray the Rosary, more would be revealed".
Fr. Raymond advised all the pilgrims coming here not to seek miracles, not talking, gossiping .... but pray the Rosary !
For me, Mother Mary did not turn her head, nor smiled or talked to me. It didn't matter much to me. I came not for miracle nor abnormal encounter.
If I did see the statue turning her head, or smiling at me, I would be very puzzled and confused. This is not the Mother Mary I wanted.
My love and devotion to her has not change. "Pray the Rosary" is her perceptual request to all children of God, and I shall continue to do so...
I believed Fr. Raymond's personal story. He has been "chosen" to see what others may not see ... It would take a longer time to see what exactly these "miracles" mean .. or true/false.
These “miracles" had brought many to the church, recites the Rosary, knowing Jesus.
If anyone ask me how is it ? shall I go to see? real or false?
My response is: Go! pray the Rosary at the Grotto, then go into the quiet and beautiful church for adoration of the blessed Sacrament, just as one normally does in his/her own parish. Take it as a spiritual journey, not miracle seeking , you will be rewarded abundantly.
And if you do not go, you loose nothing ... curiosity will haunt you only !
