St. Mary's Cathedral

This place is very significant for me. In 2005, I lost my backpack including my laptop in one of the train stations in Sydney. It was a Saturday in the middle of Australian winter. I just flew in from Auckland. I met my friend and later in the train, I realized one of my packs were missing. The next day, Sunday, we went to a solemn mass at 10:30am here at St. Marys. I prayed and found peace. Two months later and many stories to tell, my pack and laptop found its way back. During my trip to Melbuorne two years ago, I passed by and picked them up. My friend Olive and James who live in Wooloomoloo just 3 blocks from St. Mary's help me through and through.
And last week during my trip to the islands, I had to stop by and pay my respects to one of my most favorite places on earth. God is good indeed .

Day, I remember your backpack. Miraculous talaga iyon! Memorable din sa akin ang St. Mary's. I arrived in Sydney on Christmas Day, & there were no masses anymore in the churches near my sister's place. She had to drive me to the cathedral for the 6 pm mass. I also love walking around that area, with the park & the museum nearby. I'll be visiting again in November! Ingat, sis.

Hi Ella,

Talaga! indeed it was a miracle that I will always be thankful for. I felt that the hand of the Divine heard me, helped me and gave me peace...sobra! A manifestation of His love indeed.

Thank you sis for your prayers. I know that there were many people (you know who you are) that prayed with me at that time... my sincere thank you goes out to all of you!
