    Dear Virgin Saint,

    I am a filthy sinner who is tied to the lunatic of lust. How bold and courageous you were to choose death to sin! Kindly pray for me that I would be freed from this lunatic and never again give into lustful thoughts. Help me to lead a holy life free from sin. Amen.

    I one time had a dream when I had stomarch pain, some nun sent me to buy some tomatoes and on the way coming back I remembered that I had forgotten the some of the things sister sent me for. I turned back then I met a Lady and told him that I have forgetten some of the things in one of the shops here, she told me she knew where they were but the pain wa much. I went to her house and stayed but complaining of the serious pain. So she called her daughter called Gorret to escort back to the convent. On the way she picked some herbs and gave me to mix and drink. In the morning I asked one of the nuns coz I had seen the herb in the dream and got to know it. When I asked the nun in the morning abt the herbs she asked me are u in your periods den I answered yes. I got the herbs mixed and drunk I became ok.
