My dear Patti,
Peace and Joy of the Lord abide with you! What a wonderful grace-story has followed the birth of our little Philomena Adzege! Thank you so much for forwarding me the mails. Our little Princess Mena really continues to ravage hearts with celestial love, pouring out great graces on suffering humanity and offering hope to desperate hearts! I rejoice with Michael and his wife for this story of faith, hope and Divine Love!
Thank you very much for the two big parcels you sent me through Marilena Testatonda. She brought them to me here in Bologna last Saturday. On Sunday, I had the story of Santa Mena prepared and photocopied in 100 copies and distributed them to all the members of our community present for the Holy Mass. All are enrolled as members of the Universal Living Rosary Association of Saint Philomena (ULRA) and are very enthusiastic about knowing more and more both about the little Princess and the ULRA. Next Sunday, during Holy Mass, the community will do the Total Consecration. Pray for us! The Heavens are really at work but we need prayers.
I must stop here for I have to go for Holy Mass.
With love, prayers and blessing,

Dearest Mamma Patti
Thank you so much for your care to our work here, I think that the photos of the boy who I sent his story with the rapport of the hospital, are not arrived to you safely, so I will contact the shop net to send them, because they were separate of all the others photos, they are 4 or 5 photos.
About the chapel, it will be the first one for OUR Saint in Lebanon and all the countries beside us, it will be the chapel for the members of the Living Rosary who desire to honor Saint Philomena in Her place here, who I will put Her Relic in the chapel, to be honored by all her lovers. It will be also the first and the only one for
The Living Rosary, who we will consecrate many members to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and to the Scapular Brown, it will be a special place for Our Saint, who many many members can not travel to Italy to visit Her Saint Body, so here they can pray to Her, receive also Her oil and cord, Her photos and the cards of the decade, The presence of the Holy Eucharistic will help us also for the adoration to the Body of Jesus, and also to pray with the children of the Living Rosary the Rosary every day for the intentions of Our Lady and your intention, for the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for our dear benefactors and all the members of the Universal Living Rosary Association of Saint Philomena (ULRA). We need now the money to continue to do the electricity, the paint of inside the chapel and outside, to put an altar, the seats, the tabernacle, the lights, a nice statue to Saint Philomena, even in small size, and in the end we will work for the garden of the chapel, to put a big bell. Thanks to God for helping us doing the basic, the principal, and now we wait your help to continue the rest as you can help the possible. I will check tomorrow the shop net about the 4 photos of the boy who is healed by a miracle of Our Saint Philomena. I send you my love and prayers.

My dear Patti,
Thank you so very much for the forex box, my most awaited rosaries and Sacramentals. I arrived yesterday the other day. I was looking for your letter, but I didn’t find one. I have many names of new members of the Universal Living Rosary Association of Saint Philomena (ULRA) already on hand but I will wait for the ones here in the school where I am transferred to. I have also to give the Sacramentals due to them.
I'm just inserting my time to tell you of the precious forex box I received. If ever you forgot to write anything then you can just e-mail it to me. I have my Library time now, but we don't have computer in our library so I have to go to another office to e-mail you. Sorry if at times I will not be able to answer you at once, it’s just because we are too busy. And the unavailability of the computer. My big big thanks to you and the ULRA.
Praying for good health of you and your family and for the members of ULRA. Most of all for the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Honor of St. Philomena.
Take care and god bless.

Thank you to all the benefactors, donors and sponsors and all your supports that we could reach out all these things to our parishioners. Thank you then of the catechist guide “St. John Newman’s Catechism.
The catechists are so thankful for they have their guide which helps enhances and enriches their teaching capabilities and abilities.
So what we could offer are our fervent prayers, Holy thanksgiving masses, Holy Rosaries and a petition to St. Philomena to all our ULRA benefactors, donors and staffs and most especially our fervent prayer offer to the family and staff of our ULRA director.
May we could bring all souls to Christ. Go for the triumph to our Immaculate Heart of Mary.

|Dear Mrs. Patti
This is father Ivan Kolodiy. Today is very important and joyful day. The Living Rosary Association of Saint Philomena (ULRA) came to the city which has 250,000 citizens. This week we launch two new groups of the ULRA members in the city Rivne. Tomorrow morning we are sending four heavy and huge boxes with the material and Sacramentals to the new members of ULRA in this city. The people are excited to join the Living Rosary because one woman her name is Svytlana was cured from the cancer by the prayer and devotion to saint Philomena and ULRA.
Recently we launched some small groups in Rivenska region which is already central Ukraine and finally the Living Rosary was launched in this city. Rivne is the city which is located in the central Ukraine. Therefore we move from Western Ukraine to the central Ukraine.
The expansion of Living Rosary is gradually is moving to the other parts of the Ukraine.
I am looking forward to hear from you and May God bless you.
I am praying very hard for your brother Chris and I hope that He is doing well. Please let me know about you and Him. I pray for him very hard
With the prayers and respect father Ivan Kolodiy

|Dear Mrs. Melvin,
As I informed you, I went to Hyderabad from 29th of May to 1st of June. With the help of Miss Sonia and her group we visited Caritas office, Catholic Board of Education office, St. John School and on 31st we celebrated the Feast of Our Lady. It was a very good trip. I reached back on 2nd and then went to Hafizabad on 3rd. Today I am sending you the pictures of Hyderabad. It was difficult to send all the pictures in one mail, so these would be 4 mails for pictures.
Today, Miss Shagufta is here from Mariamabd to take devotional items. You know, Mariamabad is known for our National Marian Shrine and daily pilgrimages come from different parts of country and St. Philomena's Rosary Group there is doing a very good job there.
OK, Good Bye and God Bless You,
Yours in Christ and Holy Mother,

Pax et bonum (this s an ancient Franciscan greetings meaning peace and goodwill to you). Hope life is going very fine. Guess what, I cleared the parcel today and I was so happy to see the items improved, especially with the Stations of the Cross (this is just a secret, there is a parish where the Claretian go to minister the sacraments every Sunday, and I just discovered they lack the Stations of the Cross. I'll get them framed and donate it to that quasi parish).
Our Claretian community has today begun the novena to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. It was well attended by barely 600 Catholics in our seminary chapel. I was opportune to be the speaker of the first session. My theme was based on the first miracle of Christ at the wedding feast ''Do whatever he tells you''. This will continue for the next nine days when we'll then climax it with the celebration proper.
Please, have you received the forms posted to you?
I will send you photographs of the events of the novena and some of the photographs taken during the last apostolic work for your archives.
Keep us in your prayers and let’s hope to one day see somewhere when all our visions and dreams will be actualized.
