One day, as I dressed my pearl earring popped from my ear. I saw it fly under my cabinet. So I swept the floor, confident I would find it. But I did not. I moved the cabinet expecting to find it. I did not. I was wondering where on earth could that pearl earring go. I swept the room the following day hoping to see it, and looking at every nook and cranny, just in case the earring was there.
On the third day, I asked the help of Pedro. I told him to help me find it and to make it easily visible for me to see! Lo and behold, when I swung the broom under the cabinet, the pearl earring flew in the air! I was alone in the room and laughing, telling Pedro, "Hey, you are a powerful intercessor!"
From that day on, I have often turned to Pedro for help.
One day, I needed to dispose of recyclable garbage on my way to work. I whispered to Pedro, help me find the junk collectors on the road where it would be easy to pull over without causing a hold-up in the traffic. I turned on the next street and was shocked to spot men with their garbage trucks collecting recyclable materials. They were more than happy to take everything I brought!
Another time, someone in my family found it difficult to sleep. Because she needed to rest, I ran to Pedro's intercession. The next day, she told me she had had a good sleep!
The same thing happened to another sister who contracted flu and would cough at night even with medicines. I asked Pedro to help her sleep, and the night I asked, she slept well!
I treat Pedro like a young brother who is always ready to help!
