Dear Patti Melvin,

I cannot thank you enough for the parcel of pamphlets, books, medals and rosaries....and the oils.

All of this has come just at the right time, as I endure a certain persecution from inside and outside the Parish, just a few troublemakers being used by the enemy in the context of a very "liberal" ecclesiastical situation in South Africa.

As soon as I can, I intend to offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass for your intentions, and I shall also be offering a Mass for your co-worker, the good Richard Donley Fox.

Please pray for me and our Parish too as I struggle to bring about authentic renewal of Catholic life in the face of every persecution and obstacle. Don Francesco of Mugnano who fetched the relics is an inspiration.

Sincerely, in JMJ,

fr. Gregory
South Africa
 
Dear Mrs. Patti Melvin,

Greetings to you from South Africa. I hope that you are doing very well. So far I am keeping alright. Thank you very much I have received the letter and the Religious Material (Parcel) which you have send to me. I have shared to our high school students here at Inkamana Abbey, Brothers, Sisters and some of the religious material I have given to the women of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and legion of Mary. People are thanking you so much for sending us this precious gift. I want to let you know that we are praying for you all at St .Philomena Center. I will send you a photo very soon so that I can show you the people whom I am working together to promote the Message of Our Lady. The numbers of people who have joining the legion of Virgin Mary are increasing in numbers so far. This year we have got many boys and girls who are going to receive the first Holy Communion. We are planning to introduce and promoter the message of our lady in other parishes in our diocese. To do these we need more prayer books, rosaries etc. Many people enjoy so much to pray the Rosary; it is one of the essays prayers to recite by heart. It could be much better at least if you can manage to send to me the Religious material twice a year because they are many people who need it. We are trying our level best to teach our High School Students how to pray well the Rosary and to meditate the mystery.Lastly, Iam felling sorry for telling me that you have lost one of your member at St. Filomena Center. May her soul rest in peace. We willremeber her in our prayer. We will also pray for you. May the good lord bless you always?

Best Regards,
Bro. Edward Namwiri OSB

Thanks very much for such a quick response and indeed your commitment & sacrifice to save souls are empowering me too to support you. Don't you think of establishing a centre in South Africa? --- there are institutions & religious houses named after St Philomena. They might be a starting points. Please, think about it. I am concerned because it is about Mary's weapon of salvation.

Ave Maria!

Dear Mrs. Melvin

In 2007 I was transferred from Highflats, to be the student master but life there was not good for me so I got ill for about a month then had to be under great care. Thank God I am fine and I can communicate to you my new ministry which is to do translations for the Foundation and give retreats. I pray that you well and continued to spread message God has entrusted to you.
I am promoting the Rosary now in two parishes where I help for weekend masses.

God Bless

Happy Easter

Dear Mrs. Melvin,

Just wanted to compliment you on the beautiful music chosen 'Mother and Child' by Eric Genuis as theme music for the Universal Living Rosary Website. I purchased the CD from him. The music is perfect for the Living Rosary website.

Also the website is very attractive and well set out.

You might have received notification of Father E. Leslie from Pietermaritzburg, South Africa who has been killed two or three days ago. He was a member of The Living Rosary Association. I have notified the Priest who is going to assist the faithful there, of his membership. Hopefully one of the faithful will notify you and give you his number.

God Bless

Fr. Leslie of Durban Africa was a member of the Living Rosary for over 15 years. A very saintly man. May his soul rest in peace.
