clean the house and other amazing feats.
I misplaced my Rosary and Decade
prayer. I feel terrible and I would not
want to let down the others in my
group. Please send these to me.

Thank you for your beautiful letter
and your ardent, strong faith, and for
the wonderful Sacramentals never to
be seen elsewhere. Here at St. Joseph’s
Home, we experienced the Coronavirus.
All of us have recovered. My case was
mild, just extreme exhaustion. I am
still tired. When ill, I could hardly pray
or read. What saved me was your holy
card: The wonderful secret of the Holy
Name of Jesus. This is all I could do
but, with 300 days indulgence each,
giving it to the Holy Souls, I felt very
useful. What a precious gift you gave
me! Thank you! With love, < Emily >
Thank you for sharing the letter
about our suffering brethren in China.
One cannot truly feel all the pain they
undergo. It is heartbreaking. But, God
does not waste one speck of it. I pray
that I may be given the grace of courage
like these poor souls. May God reward
you abundantly for all you do for so
many of His children! < Julie - CA > D
ear Patti, warmest
greetings to you in Jesus
and Mary, and His Most
Precious Blood. Sadly, I
must inform you that our
dear friend and beloved
Sister Mary Joseph passed
away last Sept. 29 - Feast of St. Michael.
Sister was in the hospital with a bowel
obstruction and heart condition which
eventually lead to double pneumonia.
She had the Apostolic Blessing and
the Last Sacraments, and passed away
very peacefully. Life is so fragile that
we never know when God will call us
Home. Sister esteemed you highly and
was always eager to share your holy
cards with others. Now, she can pray
for us from Heaven; she sees the whole
picture now and she knows the outcome.
I am happy to send you the Precious
Blood stamps. We will be praying for
you from our Monastery, our earthly
Heaven. May the Blood of Jesus protect
and heal our Nation!
< Sr. Mary Matthew,
Precious Blood Monastery - NH >
I have difficulty writing, but I wanted
to thank you for the mailing, full of
spiritual helps. I have been a Living
Rosary member for 30 years! Enclosed
is my list for the Lenten Bouquet of
Masses. May God continue to bless
you with your spiritual vocation! In
the love of Mary, < Mary Perody >
Your last packet has kept me reading
some things more than once. All of it
was so comforting. I want to ask you
for another copy of Sheltering the
Divine Outcast. I have been reading
now and then a passage to my daughter.
She wants a copy! This is a daughter
and husband who are steeped in the
Assembly of God church for years. They
are both cradle Catholics. This gives
me a glimmer of hope for her and,
maybe, the whole family. I am the only
Catholic now in 5 generations. Thank
you, Patti, and God bless one and all!

Year 2020 has been quite challenging!
My lymphoma has returned in two
areas in my body. Radiation treatment
was taken for 2 months, five days a
week. I am beginning to heal and
regaining my strength. Doctors advised
me to stop feeding the homeless and
serving food to the poor at church.
This was my life for the past four
years. I have a low stage cancer that
cannot be treated. I am at peace
which the world cannot give: G
God’s Will be d o ne, not mine!
