I gave a short speech at
Binh Thuan Parish and
introduced them to our
great Saint Philomena.
Sadly, they had no idea
who she was as they had
never heard her name
before. They immediately
fell in love with her. I
shared her life and the
promise she made to God.
She had a beautiful and strong faith. As
Catholic children, we must follow her
example. < Joseph Mary - VIETNAM > Thank you for your
wonderful FOREX box.
So many materials were
inside! We will visit the
prisons, hospitals and
remote areas to propagate
the Living Rosary
and devotion to Saint
Philomena. This little
girl, Nicole, is wearing
the First Communion
dress you sent in the box.
She is very happy! Thank
you, St. Philomena!

Thank you for helping me to promote
the Living Rosary in my city with the
precious Sacramentals and for your
prayers and support. We are praying our
assigned Decades as individuals and
as a group. Even as movement is difficult,
we remain united in love and prayers.
God bless you and our benefactors!
< Fortunata - DAR ES SALAAM >
Thank you for your expedition. Your
parcels are reaching me well. Due to
my age and circulatory problems, I am
forgetful at times and I have vertigo.
Many children are not able to attend
school as they are too poor to pay for
books. I try every day to offer as much as
I can to Jesus and Mary. In the persecutions
in our country in the past, the
Rosary saved us and we did not lose
our minds. Thousands of detainees in all
the jails from Romania raised fervent
prayer to Our Lady and Jesus, every day
and at night. The tears and perspiration
were falling down in big drops to wet
and sanctify the earth. Prayer is the
only action to stop the Communists, who
are afraid of prayer as they believe it
has some magical power. When it was
possible, we selected a look out person,
and then celebrated Holy Mass. We
had no altar, Chalice or Mass books,
no nothing. Our knees were used as
altar, our handkerchiefs were the altar
cloth, a cup was a chalice and our minds
contained the Mass book. We knew
the Liturgy by heart. We never prayed
so intensely and trusted God so much
as in the huts of these jails. Our priests
preferred terror and torture instead of
the advantages offered by the Orthodox
Church. May Our Lady reward your
apostolic work in His honor!
