I am thank you for all, I wish to tell you with the benefactors about how we survive the last elections, you will excuse me for bad English because I am for Arabic and no one this time help me express that what I wants to do most!
I do this on behalf of those all that have found help with MM. I wrote to you our worry for the last elections that take place from 11th April and you accepted with all your energy and time to arrive at us in Darfur! I am report to you that we up to now we never got a lot of problems! These are minor one but not so serious, all those that benefit from the dispatches you send us before elections are so thankful for the miracle that you have help do. Surely according to what we see before elections, how the janjaweed were determined to fight us non-Moslem is surprise! Dear benefactors, you helped us survive the monster of Satan that has been near us, we saw yesterday the president reinstall that he win elections, and we are surprise that no much violence was come!
Everyone here has it on lip that it must have not been any human help that bring this, it was the hand of Mother Mary under title of Immaculate Conception, We are so thankful of all of you the benefactors and our director, that help us in hard times you are helping us for the other time, we are your children, we have understand that you love us, like Jesus! A parent can’t bad do anything on your children but good! This is what you done, everyone confirm that you are heart of us, and have found good parents! We tell you, everyone is surprise including Moslems; our people have gained much Mother Mary's medal!
So we now thinks without delay that we to be protected during most times, Nevertheless, we hereby kindly again begs you to helps us with more MM and oils, they prove much protect for the population that never had any protection before! We are so much happy and encourage that non- Catholics are pick much interest in this! Also we we still have just small percentage with protection of this, we asks you kindly to helps us protect more souls with more MM! There are so many in demands for MM, this time non-Catholics demand more! This is good attitude because they say that they came from Catholics!!One lady that asked for medal when I have not, told me that she know that Catholic is most pure of all and said that she has right to demand MM, unfortunate, I has not!
So many miracles favors reported by non- Catholics that have MM, surprising, women escape rape and etc.
We rely on you, and we say you that we love you well!
Dear Mother Mary, protect benefactors of us!

Warmest Greetings from the St. Philomena’s House in the name of Jesus and Mary!!!
So happy to inform you that I have this afternoon posted to you the lists of 2,100 new members in the Universal Living Rosary Association of Saint Philomena (ULRA) who are to begin their assigned decades on April 26TH, 2010, the feast of our LADY OF GOOD COUNSEL.
Thank you so very much!! Patti, by your great help and quick response I was able to get Rosaries, Scapulars, Miraculous Medals, Dedicated Decades, leaflets etc. for all these newly enrolled members. In fact each and every member shall receive Rosary, Miraculous Medal and Scapular as well as leaflets and Holy picture together with his or her Assigned Decade Cards from their packages. And we always try to add some few newsletters, large Holy pictures, books etc. into each package for the whole group. We usually do the packages according to proportional division.
Please here are some few poor photos of the start of the packages and the end. I am sure you will see the contents of each box. By God’s grace and your kind support all the boxes for these new members were also posted this afternoon, through special express mail, so it may take only three working days to reach the new members. Thank you for all you do for us. May God bless you more abundantly. Patti, peace be to you!!

|HE IS RISEN ALLELUIA!
Our Dearest Director Patti Melvin,
Happy Easter 2010 to you and all the Staff members of the Universal Living Rosary Association of Saint Philomena (ULRA)!
First and foremost please receive my apologies for the delay in replying to your letters and all the devotional items received during the month of March on 25th 2010, due to various pastoral reasons in our Mission which I could not avoid such as: the instructions of the catechumens, for the sacrament of marriage, seminars of different Catholic Movements of Action among which we have our new movement named: “Movement of Saint Philomena” under the name of “Children of Light” with the devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary the movement which is really starting with a bit of strength since most of our Christian Catholics are from other mushrooming churches such as Makane Yesus, Kalehiwot among others, hence these people really need a lot of catechism and instructions about the catholic faith and the devotions of different kinds. In fact, one of these instructions that I put forward for our new movement during the Lenten season was to organize the coming together as a group for the daily Rosary prayers which took us throughout the 40 days of lent starting from ash Wednesday to holy Wednesday of the holy week and was only possible at the parish level whereby at least I could get some time for them after the apostolate in the outstations and we really remembered you in daily prayers. So I am really sorry for that and also I take this opportunity to present to you my sincere condolences in particular and from our new movement in general for the death of KLOTZ, Sister Mary Francisca which occurred on January 28th, 2010 may her soul rest in peace and Dear PATTI as you know God gave her to the people and God has taken her away from the same people, this is with a purpose so please remain strong always with Mom in prayer and let me assure you that we shall keep praying for you and your dear family. We pray God that He may always shed His light upon you ,your family and all your staff members so that His Will may always be done for those who suffer in the spirit and in the body while advocating to our beloved Mother Mary through our dear Universal Living Rosary Association of St. Philomena.
I am really happy to inform you that we received the beautiful rosaries (275), medals (275), small images of St. Philomena (288), Blessed oil (2 tins),small catechism of the catholic religion (3), printed colored papers dedicated decades (15 + 2 booklets spring 2010),and finally booklets + leaflets for mysteries in Amharic (39). We really appreciate you very much indeed, dear Patti keep it up and I promise to send you our group photo very soon before the end of this month, because by this time it is not available still in the studio with the photographer. I would also wish to inform you that in the first week of may I will be through with my pastoral experience in Ethiopia of one year and go back to Nairobi-Kenya to finish up with my remaining 2 years of theological studies. So for this reason I would wish to propose to you the name of the father or sister working here in our parish as your future collaborators, could you please help me to choose from among the two before I leave this place?
Dear Patti we still need more items from you to strengthen our people in terms of catholic faith such scapulars, big size holy pictures, statutes of our mother Mary among others.
Wishing you all the best in your daily activities and good apostolate in everything you do to the people around you.
Yours in the Risen Christ,
Brother Romeo Kabikula Kapepela, A.J.

|Franciscan priest prays for all Universal Living Rosary Association of Saint
Philomena (ULRA) members and their loved ones through Easter at the Tomb of
Our Lord in Jerusalem.
“All throughout the blessed Season of Lent and the glorious weeks of Easter, I have united my prayers with yours everyday in the traditional Way of the Cross along the ancient Via Dolorosa and the Holy Rosaries at the different shrines in Jerusalem. You are all here with me on Holy Land. During this holy season of Lent, I have offered a Novena of Masses for you, your families, your departed loved ones, the sick and suffering.
I celebrated the Solemn High Mass at the Tomb of Our Lord on April 6 for the members and benefactors of the ULRA of St. Filomena.”

Greets you from Malakal, I knows you want to know more about the elections.
Thanks to God that we have not have so far a lot of violence as we predicted, this is surely a miracle and must have come from the mercy of Mother Mary! Thanks you indeed for protecting us and we are so value you and the benefactors!
About elections, we see the worst of what is called elections, and we are afraid that all the people that have understanding cannot accept this! They were supposed to have ended yesterday but by then only a negligible fraction of what had been cast by those interested; led the Islamists government to extend election date up to next Thurs! This too many is just useless because everything is complex and many people not interested!
Most voices say they will shed their last blood come let next Jan referendum, thus this is why we call upon you to help us Emma return to us soon as we prepare for the worst. We know Mother Mary will protect us, we have now proved what Emma sings about. We never know that we would reach today with no war, as every Islamist had said to start fighting for "God" as soon as elections start! We are by thread of life from Mother Mary and you our mother, we need now to protect more, MM is like hot cake here, people are originally not strong believers but miraculously, they are coming up!
We pray for you always
Thank you for the parcel sent 03.30.2010.It is absolutely wonderful and welcome. God bless you always.
Fr. Ernil called me today from Baia Mare where he was to get the Statue of St. Philomena sent by you. He thanks you very much.
The Post sent to him the document of the parcel after one month from the parcel arrived in Ro.Fr. Ernil can take the parcel only from Baia Mare because from outside Europe we need to go at the capital of the district.
But Fr. Ernil was so much happy for the statue of St. Philomena, you cannot image. He has not possibility to give a telephone call from his Moliset Village because it is not signal. No internet...It is an isolated village.
Fr. Ernil will celebrate a NOVENA for Sr. Mary Francisca and a Triduum for the all you mentioned they are helping you in this important mission. Also as many prayers for you as they can.
Specially greetings and prayers from Fr. Pop Traian who was in Cluj and called me to tell you about him.
He is Parachuted into another isolated village named Valea Ungurasului where is also difficult to have a contact.
So, today we had a lot of messages in many ways. Thank you Lord for allow us to know about each of others.
We send you our LOVE and we continue to pray for you and for our benefactors and for those in a deeper necessity as us. We pray for all our sisters and brothers in Christ.
Ave Maria Gratia Plena!

|Dear Pat Melvin,
I am glad to inform you about the safe arrival of the parcel that you send to us recently. Thank you so immensely for your inexhaustible effort of bringing these Sacramentals to encourage us in our work to the B.V.M. Please there is no oil and cord inside the parcel you send. Kindly do us a favor by sending it to us because we are really in need of them. Thanks remain Blessed in the Immaculate Heart.

We hope that you are aware that Sudan is in elections that started yesterday, there is a standoff, the southern former rebels are accusing the northern Islamists of the rigging, already there are some clashes in some states where the ballots have never arrived and voting is to end tomorrow. So the former are saying that the election exercise must be extended, ballot papers are incomplete; material not at polling stations, the whole exercise in mess! Our gratitude goes to you for a timely visit of Emma to us, we have felt more protected and we urge you to give more of this indispensable protection!
What we experience as of now is that everyone of the population with instructions from Emma is taking them seriously! They are praying fervently for peace! We don’t know whether the voting days will be extended but on the other hand the main oppositions of the Islamists pulled out of the elections because of the well outlined rigging patterns!
A true southerner is waiting only, for next year's referendum for the cessation of the south as a new country!
More blood is expected then. So we hereby kindly put it to you as mother of the Sudan, to urgently organize so that your emissary can return to us here to equip us with Mother Mary's powers so that we will smoothly go through these dark days that are beyond us! Even some people refused to go to the polling stations because they know the possible outcomes but wait only for the Jan 2011 referendum as their determinant.
To protect Emma from any pre- referendum consequences we kindly pray you send him earlier, four months to referendum, we need his services to make us firm, and He has the best works not the politicians. His soothing words about the Mother of God will help us and be a channel through that turbulent time!

Greetings to you once again from this beautiful country of Fiji!
Oh I must say HAPPY EASTER!!!
It's been a year or so since you have heard from me. But praise the Lord to see how hundreds and hundreds of the people in Fiji who are devoted to St. Philomena and on top of that a lot of healings has been taking place.
When I hear people talking about the little saint I thank Almighty God for it.
Again I have this friend of mine who belongs to this particular sector in a parish named St. Philomena and she asked me to contact you and ask if you have a photo screen of St. Philomena that they can print on their T-Shirts for their patron saint feast day 11th August.
Thank you so much Patti and hoping to hear from you soon. Once again I thank you for the tremendous works you are doing from the Universal Church. God Bless you and keep up the good work.
I Love you Patti
Love and Prayers
How are you and family? I am now in the center of the city of Kupang, at the internet cafe now to open my mail box, and the news of your dear little sister's death came to me and family as a shock. You have our sincere and heartiest sympathy in your sorrow. I know you will feel it deeply, for you always thought so much of your dear little sister and loved her so nicely. Her death must be a terrible grief to your mother too. Please assure her of our sincere sympathy. I will tell my family when I get home from internet cafe, and i will also ask y friends, the members of Living Rosary, priests to celebrate the Holy Mass for Mary Francesca’s eternal rest in heaven. I and family will write her name and intention and stipendium and put it on the holy altar before the Holy Mass. She will be in our Rosary daily prayers too.
Dearest Patti, I would like to let you now that the spreading of Living Rosary is going well here and many people are very happy to pray their Decades daily. I go to meet the people and introduce to them how to say the chaplet of St Philomena, and Scapular, and how to pray Rosary. Many people came to my house and asked Rosary, chaplets, and Saint Philomena Oil but unfortunately we are run out of them. Many times I went to the Post office to check but no Sacramentals came. Please forgive me for being absence to write you for it. My health was not very good, high cholesterol, diabetic, kidney problem, and had a pain in the site of the hernia operation too. I didn't take all the medicines because I was scared of its side effects, so I placed all my worries, difficulties, problems to Sacred heart of Jesus, His Blessed Mother, and our lovely Saint Philomena. The Sacred Heart of Jesus, Blessed Mother, and our charming Saint Philomena are always there for me and have helped me so much over the recent years. Se of them was miracles for me but the latest and greatest one is a wonderful recovery from a severe coronary heart disease, kidney problem, and diabetic. Few days ago I had my blood checked, at a clinic, and the result showed that my cholesterol, diabetic and the other one were in normal levels. I thank to Saint Philomena for her intercession for my recovery.
Dearest Patti, Being too many people came and asked Rosary’s and other sacramentals,could you possible send us some more rosaries, chaplets, Oil(the small and some big ones)?Many priests from other parish also rang and asked me for these Sacramentals. I and all members of Living Rosary will be very happy if you can send them to us. Could you send us so Agnus Dei St. Pius XII?I would be very thankful if you could help send the Sacramentals, and if you think it possible, could you give us some financial help just to ease for transportation, and we thank you very much for your kind help. We keep on praying for you and family, your mother, you’re Staffs, and all benefactors, The Slater’s in our daily Rosary prayers. Happy Easter to you and family, all Staffs, all benefactors of ULRA, the Slater's from me and family. May Our Blessed other and saint Philomena protect us.
Our union in prayers,
Warm greetings from Goroka in the Eastern Highlands Province of Papua New Guinea.
I was delighted to receive your most welcome letter, St. Philomena chaplet, the Blessed Oil of St. Philomena, St. Philomena cord, Rosary beads and devotional literature of The Universal Living Rosary Association.
God bless you for your care and kindness. I have distributed them amongst the parishioners of our parish.
Several parishioners of our parish, Mary Help of Christians, have requested a small bottle of The Holy Oil of Saint Philomena and the St. Philomena cord. To my surprise and delight one of those parishioners, Michael, produced a crumpled holy card of St. Philomena. The title and prayers of the chaplet of St. Philomena on the card were written in ‘Pidgen English’ – Santu Philomena, Was-Santu Bilong Living Rosari …. (St. Philomena, Patroness of The Living Rosary), Santu Philomena, Was-Santu Bilong Ol Pikinini Bilong Santu Maria (St. Philomena, Patroness of The Children of Mary) and Pre B’Long Helpim Mipela (Pray for us).
If you are able to donate several bottles of The Holy Oil of Saint Philomena, the St. Philomena cord, and the holy cards of St. Philomena written in Pidgin English I would be most grateful. When the small bottles of Holy Oil of Saint Philomena, the St. Philomena cords, and the holy cards of St. Philomena arrive I will give them to these parishioners. On their behalf I offer you our gratitude and a remembrance in our prayers.
I am a Christian Brother (Irish Christian Brothers) ministering as a pastoral carer to our brothers and sisters who suffer from a mental illness. Part of my ministry is also assist and share in training programs for Papua New Guineans in the care and treatment of persons with a mental illness. We are also developing a mental health program in the local and rural communities and already good things are happening, thanks be to God. We appreciate and value your prayers.
Wishing you God’s blessing in your ministry, and looking forward to hearing from you in due course, I remain,
