I posted this topic cause I know being a catholic country, we certainly believe on divine intervention.

Though most cases are just anecdotal, I want to share with you our experience in my wife's hometown in Bicol.

It was in 2006 and 2008 when I experienced one of the worst typhoon I ever been through in my life. Typhoon Unding and typhoon Reming wrecked havoc on all parts of the Bicol province. We were out of electricity on those two cases for more than two weeks. It was such a gloomy day seeing all fallen trees and electrical posts. Generators were a must for everybody.

My mother said that it's no wonder cause Bicol is known to be the typhoon capital of the Philippines and with my experiences, I do believe her.

But then came the 300 years celebration of our Beloved INA. Those who are not aware of this, INA is Our Lady of Peñafrancia. We celebrate this on the month of September and it is comparable to the wild procession during Quiapo Fiesta.

Our Archbishop Monsignor Legazpi prepared us a year ahead in 2009 culminating on the 300 yearS celebration last September. We even have a special prayer for the beloved INA that is being prayed after each mass. AND YOU KNOW WHAT, we never had a typhoon in that magnitude again and that is a rare event. Bicol was spared and I pity the other provinces which was severely hit by this year's typhoon.

And then NAGA is a booming City. Suddenly there was SM Naga, Puregold is coming in, Seven eleven, etc. Camarines Sur in particular is the Number 1 Tourist destination for the year 2009 beating the likes of Boracay, Bohol, Cebu. etc. Naga is the place to be.

naniniwala din ako dito. . .
everything has a purpose nga, and for me lahat ng pinag hirapan natin eh pwede mawala sa isang iglap lang kung gugustuhin talaga ng may kapal.

Ya, like the way religious leaders steal money from their members upfront.

Those things were mere climate disturbances which happen all the time. Just this time, it is more "frequent" because information can now be easily transmitted.

Oh, by the way. I do believe in Devine intervention. It happened to me twice - when my ex-girlfriends named Divine Grace and Lady Divine intervened on my business affairs years back.

The year will end without a typhoon hitting the Bicol Region and I hope the 300 years celebration will continue to carry us to the future

i believe and sometimes don't sa divine intervention. 

kasi may mga tanong na di masagot like "bakit pa sa akin nangyari ito, marami namang masamang tao bakit sa akin pa?"  kaya minsan naiisip ko na mangyayari at mangyayari ang dapat mangyari, gustuhin man natin o hindi.

@Doc Rex   Typhoon Reming....yeah, who could forget the havoc wrought by that typhoon in Bicol.   It was like a disaster zone....luckily, me & my business partner made the right decision and turned a crisis into an opportunity.   Who would think that generators would sell like hotcakes prior to Reming?

...that life is not merely a series of meaningless accidents or coincidences...

Good for you mga taga Bicol!

how would you account the catastrophe and havoc in Haiti? Divine intervention din ba iyon?

What about the tsunami in Indonesia killing 200,000 plus people..truly biblical in nature.

What about the 911 in NYC, which I have witnessed..divine intervention din ba iyon?

Question about prayers. Haiti, Indonesia, september 11.

I dont say those are divine interventions but what I am emphasizing was we experienced two typhoon that wreck havoc on our province. With the 300 year celebration, after each sunday mass, we prayed the prayer for INA and what a coincidence, we are spared of such sad events this year and it is truly a divine intervention.

For those who are not aware of the 300 years celebration for INA, we are talking here of the whole province in prayer after each mass for INA. I am not saying divine intervention in the neighborhood but it is a reality that all bicolanos were united in prayer and I think it spared us of our bad experiences with those weather disturbances. Imagine two years of prayers.

I don't know if such a united undertaking ever happened for some places that were unluckily hit by events but don't lose hope, continue to pray.

I meant your neighborhood in general..the Bicolandia..not literally.

So, if you stop praying now, you will have typhoons and calamities??
just curious..

just a thought..

Bill Hicks:

The world is like a ride at an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it, you think that it's real because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills, and it's very brightly coloured, and it's very loud and it's fun, for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they begin to question - is this real, or is this just a ride? And other people have remembered, and they come back to us. They say 'Hey! Don't worry, don't be afraid, ever, because, this is just a ride.' And we...kill those people. Ha ha ha. 'Shut him up! We have a lot invested in this ride. SHUT HIM UP! Look at my furrows of worry. Look at my big bank account and family. This just has to be real.' It's just a ride. But we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that, you ever notice that? And let the demons run amok. But it doesn't matter because: it's just a ride. And we can change it anytime we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings, and money. A choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourselves off. The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one. Here's what you can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money that we spend on weapons and defence each year, and instead spend it feeding, clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, for ever, in peace.
