Why there's no Tagalog word for "cheers" and other notes on Filipino drinking culture by Gideon Lasco, MD I was with my family in a restaurant in Tagaytay, and the discussion went to wine.

The remarkable grace of the mysteries of the Rosary The Ferrons were a pious Catholic family, and the mother, Delima Mathieu Ferron was of a rare virtue.
At the beginning of her marriage, she offered to God through the Blessed Mother each child to be born, in honor of the mysteries of the Holy Rosary.
To Father Leonard, Rose once said: At the end, I read the name of my own mother. I understood that my mother had had fifteen children, in honor of the fifteen mysteries of the Rosary. I saw the crucifixion, and I understood that I was marked with the stigmata of the crucifixion, because I was the tenth child of the family.
Ferron had her first child, while she was bearing it, she offered it in honor of the first mystery of the Rosary; she continued this practice, until all 15 of the mysteries were thus honored. If someone in the household lost something, she claimed the privilege of invoking her favorite Saint and with his help she always found that which was lost.
She was very precocious, as regards intelligence and piety. At the time they left Canada for the States, when their house was practically empty, the family found her in front of St. Anthony's picture telling him that she would not leave him all alone.

Due to her illness, she had to have many teeth extracted and a plate installed in her jaw. Her left hand was shrunk to half its size and clenched, causing her nails to pierce her palm. Gendron tells us that her feet were twisted, clubbed and rotated inwardly; and her legs were in a state of complete atrophy.
Because at times her muscles would painfully contract, making it very difficult to straighten her once again, a flat board was placed on her mattress and she had to be strapped to this board, and thus she remained on the board continually for the rest of her life.
