Looking For Real True Love This Valentine? Then Pray the Holy Novena
Instead of resorting to "gayuma" or love potions a Catholic prelate asked those who are desperate to find their true love to pray the Holy Novena. Retired Lingayen Dagupan Archbishop Oscar Cruz said prayers are definitely more effective than any love potion. Archbishop Cruz said although the novena to St. Jude is popular to Pilipino Catholics praying to any saint or even to the Blessed Virgin Mary is also effective. The former head of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) said a number of couples admitted to him that they prayed for their lifetime partner. "That's especially true for women, It's good to pray for somebody who is right for you." said Cruz. But Cruz also reminded the faithful sometimes they don't get what they prayed for because they are meant to be single. "There are prayers wherein the answer is No. For example somebody is not meant for marriage. The so called love potion is to say the least a recourse to desperation. Maybe those who couldn't find somebody to love him or her take recourse to that love concoction as some source of hope. Hope must be founded on reality. I have not heard of anybody sincere and dedicated enough not finding anybody to love and to be loved. There's a saying for every woman there's a man and vice versa and I believe in that." said Cruz.
