An Order of 26 Cakes

I run a small bakery business out of my home, and my mother gave me Dora’s prayer card. I pray to Dora every day asking for her help in my business–that the cakes will turn out well, and that I will have plenty of orders. One Monday or Tuesday during Christmas time, I received an order of twenty-six cakes which had to be ready that Friday.

Opus Dei - An Order of 26 Cakes

I run a small bakery business out of my home, and my mother gave me Dora’s prayer card. I pray to Dora every day asking for her help in my business–that the cakes will turn out well, and that I will have plenty of orders.

One Monday or Tuesday during Christmas time, I received an order of twenty-six cakes which had to be ready that Friday. I accepted the order, but I realized that I might have more work than I could handle. Up to that point I had only had small orders and I had used a hand mixer to make the cakes.

When I received the order of twenty-six cakes, I started calling my friends and relatives, hoping to borrow an electric mixer, but no one had one. The next day when I woke up I immediately began to pray for Dora’s help. When I came out of my bedroom my mother told me that four people had called offering to lend me their electric mixers. I accepted the offer of two of them and, with the help of my brothers, I was able to finish the twenty-six cakes in two days, by Thursday instead of Friday.

I have received many favors, large and small, from Dora. She has helped me to finish orders on time and to make sure that everything turns out well. I am very grateful for her help, and for having been given her prayer card.
