Dear Apostles of the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
These have been very devastating times
and, in order to persevere, we must listen
and obey our heavenly Mother. The Rosary
is an infallible means of obtaining Heaven.
There is nothing more beautiful and more
excellent than the Rosary.
The Rosary converts heretics, restores
sinners and strengthens the faith and
love of countless Christians. Wherever
the Rosary devotion is cherished, the
Catholic Faith has retained its vigor and
reigns in the hearts and lives of Christians.
It is a perfect Catechism. It teaches the
Christian Truths exactly and completely,
and illustrates them beautifully. The Rosary
gives consolation in suffering, health in
sickness, conversion of hardened hearts
and help at the hour of death. The spirit
of the world is threefold and takes hold of the mind, heart and body. It is a tripleheaded
serpent. The holy Rosary combats this demon.
The Joyful Mysteries are direc ted against the pride of life!
The Sorrowful Mysteries comb at the weakness of our flesh!
The Glorious Mysteries help us to focus on Heaven
and lift us above the material world!
The Rosary is an ocean of Grace, a source of comfort in trials, and protection in
bodily and spiritual dangers. The Rosary is a key to Heaven and help in our last
agony. It is most efficacious in relieving the souls of the faithful departed. The
Rosary is a perfect prayer because of the praise it offers, the lessons it imparts,
and the triumphs it achieves. The holy Rosary will give us courage, strength and
love to face whatever crisis the future may hold. Two days ago, my youngest
brother, Kevin Klotz, died suddenly and alone. Please remember his dear soul in
your prayers. Death comes as a thief in the night. We must be prepared!
e are eternally grateful to all of you for your support, your prayers and your
great courage in keeping the faith during this unprecedented time in history. We
must have absolute trust in God and keep our eyes on Heaven.
ay Our Blessed Mother wrap you in the mantle of her Protection!
One with you, in the Pure Heart of Mary,
PATTI MELVIN, ULRA Director
