years & 41
years away from the Catholic Church
Dear Veronica and Our Lady's workers,
I want to tell you of two or more beautiful things that
have happened to me: First, my beautiful Rosary has turned gold, and I am so
happy about that. Second, my husband returned to communion after being away at
least 40 years, I am so thrilled and thank Jesus and Mary for him returning to
the sacraments. Third, we were in an auto accident and our car was totaled, but
for the grace of Good we were both spared; I had just finished saying my Rosary
about 10 minutes before the accident.
Please put this letter at the next vigil to thank Jesus
and Blessed Mother for all she has done for us.

I have been going to Our Lady of the Roses
shrine for 9 years now, and have been blessed in so many ways.
My husband had been away from the Church and the Sacraments for over 40
years. The beginning of this year
he started going to Church again and for Easter He went to Confession and
Communion the first in over 40 years. I
thank Our Lady of the Roses, Mary help of mothers, Our Lady truely answers
from La Trobe, Pennsylvania
HAD BEEN AWAY SINCE 1950
March 6, 1991
Thank you for the scapulars, I really appreciate it.
I am not sure of the exact date when I received my
first paper from the Shrine, or who sent it to me?
But it was 1981-82. After
reading my first paper, I felt I had to return to the Church and sacraments.
I had been away since 1950. I
tried on & off at different churches, but couldn't find no peace or answers.
I'd lost my husband in 1980, to a heart attack, he'd just turned 50.
All we had, were 23 short years together.
I've had a hard life. Born
in 1938, my parents were chronic alcoholics, & divorced when I was in 6th
grade. Being the oldest of three
children besides the [word unclear], my mother had me clean, cook, & take
care of my younger brother & sisters. I
dropped out of high school in my first year, & went to work.
When I lost my younger sister in '78 to cancer, I though that was pain.
But when I lost my husband, my world ended.
I tried to commit suicide, even though I had two children.
I don't remember anything about it.
It was right after this, I received my first paper from the Shrine.
God bless whoever thought of me then.
My pain now is my two adult children, ages 27 & 32 who have no love
for Our Lord & Our Lady. My
deepest wish, is to pray for them, & see them back in church with me.
I pray Sweet Jesus & Our Lady will let me live to suffer all for my
sins, & to bring them back to Our Lord.
As of last year, I receive Social Security, thank God.
He heard my prayer.
A few years ago,
I sent Veronica a sterling silver Rosary. The
beads were all roses, & it was a large Rosary.
I thought it'd be nice if Our Lady would accept it, for the Shrine
statue. I never heard whether Our
Lady accepted it, although I did get a thank you from one of Our Lady's workers,
back then. As it's been a few years
ago I sent it, I wish now I had kept it.
Would you do me two favors?
Would you thank Veronica for me, & ask her to pray for me & my
family. A blessing from Our Lord
& Lady would be asking too much. And
would you please send me the old Shrine's papers, I would deeply appreciate it.
I've been back to church ever since, receive the
sacraments, & say a Rosary as often as I can.
Thank you & God bless you all. Sincerely, a humble
Sauk Village, Illinois
