Yesterday, 15th August 2010 was the Feast of Our Lady of Assumption and on the same day, we children of Fr. Al celebrated the 25th Anniversary of The Sisters of Mary School - Philippines.

Being a graduate of a/m school, i've learned to love and venerate Mama Mary. I remember the days when we pray the rosary everyday and the novena of the Virgin of the Poor (Our Lady of Banneux).

A short story of Our Lady of Banneux says that the Blessed Mother have appeared to Mariette Beco eight times when she was 10 years old calling herself as the "Virgin of the Poor". Mama Mary Mary promised to intercede for the poor, the sick and the suffering.

And so yesterday we have attended the high mass at Saint Mary's Church, Dubai to celebrate the Feast of Our Lady's of Assumption. As part of the celebration there was a MARIAN EXHIBIT where various Statues of Mama Mary was exhibited in front of the Church for viewing but as i was looking at the Statues i felt sad that I have not seen the statue of Virgin of the Poor - the Patron of The Sisters of Mary School in their noble deed of serving the poorest of the poor.

I took some photos of the Statues using my mobile phone and to my suprise one of them i've never seen and never heard about, Maria Bambina.

Some other Statues: Our Lady of Piat, Our Lady of Assumption, Immaculate Heart of Mary, Our Lady of Manaoag, Immaculate Concepcion, Our Lady of Lourdes and many more which i was not able to take a photo.

Know what i tried to touch the Statue of Our Lady of Manaoag even if it's not allowed. Hubby's cousin told me to touch it and say a little prayer to blessed me a baby, Our Lady of Manaoag is a Patroness of sick, helpless and needy.
