"There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief... and unspeakable love.” - Washington Irving

Day 4 Mass Offering

Ten o'clock in the morning, I woke up with the song "When You Believe" playing in my head. It seems harder to peel myself off the bed today. The tears have lessened but the void greater than ever.

It's little Marcus' 4th day of novena today. Day 4 after we put our son to rest. It gets more difficult trying to function when our hearts are still very much grieving. But we do it for little Marcus, we want to do it for little Marcus. We will climb mountains everyday just to honor him.

Every afternoon, Papa Jhon carries him in a small bag, wrapped in my pashmina. We bring him to the chapel at 5:30 p.m., offer a mass, take the Holy Eucharist for him and have him blessed. Our Mama, with her delicate condition, travels from Greenhills to Makati daily just to be with us. Ate Belle makes sure she reminds us about our daily schedule for novena, she makes it a point to be with us as well. Ate Mache made sure she joined us to pray for little Marcus. Even the kids, with their busy school week schedule make sure they be part and pray for little Marcus when they can.

The love and support we receive from our families is overwhelming. It makes each day easier to cope with.

Thank you dear God for the overflowing love you bless us with. Thank you for the gift of Marcus that he brings out the best in everyone.

We love you our baby Marcus.
