I have been praying my Decade daily.
Each week now, I read the Reprisal
Psalm, sing in the choir and help with
the opening prayers of the service. We
need more information on the Rosary
and Scapular. Your materials give us
great strength and much hope.

I max out of prison on April 2, 2018.
Monday morning, I will have served
10 years for a crime I did not commit.
But I got away with so much in my life;
I had to get incarcerated for something.
I have seen so many people in prison
commit suicide for no reason at all. I
refuse to give the devil the glory of
harming myself. I know, I am a sinner
and have fallen short in God’s grace.
But I repent and confess all my sins and
ask God to forgive me. < Kenneth >
It is my great pleasure to tell you that,
after 25 years in prison, I am finally
home on parole. In your last letter, you
mentioned that, once I am home, you
would send me some religious items
and a Pardon Crucifix. Things are going
well and I am getting use to the changes
in my life. I managed to get a 6-month
old Lab puppy. He is great company. I
go to Mass every Sunday but cannot
go more often. I am on limited parole.
My heart is troubled over my brother
and his family, and my sister and her
family. They refuse to speak to me or
even to see me. My brother was only
16 and my sister was 15, when I was
arrested. I was not a nice person then
and was a drunkard and doing drugs.
Please ask God to touch their hearts
and help them forgive me. I want to
thank you for your help during my
years of incarceration. I cannot express
how much they meant to
me. The Living Rosary was
my anchor. I thank God
for your organization and
look forward to hearing
from you! Respectfully,
< James >
I am writing to request a Roman
Catholic Calendar for 2018. The 2017
issue was very inspirational. I am 600
miles west of you and very isolated.
The chaplain on this Unit does not
provide us with religious materials. I
have formed a sanctuary in my cell and
find refuge sitting there viewing all
the materials and holy cards you have
sent. I hope my conviction to prayer
remains strong. The other day, during
a random shake down, the Lieutenant,
while searching my property, threw
my calendar and Rosary beads on the
floor. I felt disrespect and persecution.
I use to fish in the Kemah shores and
so am aware of the Galveston-Houston
Archdiocese. I offer my condolences
over your losses due to Hurricane
Harvey. I am an electrician with over
30 years of experience in commercial
and industrial and, when I get out, my
help is offered to you free of charge.
Pray for me. < Michael >
The newest pamphlet, “Where Mary
Reigns as Queen, Christ is King” is
a beaming light of mercy in the
darkness which surrounds us. Your
ministry of love is bringing light to the
darkest of places. With Rosary in hand,
the darkness flees from me because I
am bathed in the light of Our Blessed
Mother’s love. I am praying for you,
Ms. Patti. < Ernesto >
I am a Catholic but the Unit, in which
I stay here in prison, does not have a
Catholic Mass. When I arrived on this
Unit, my Rosary was taken from me.
