Excerpt from Message

Pentecost Dear Mothers, Pardon me for being so rushed – the train is in a matter of minutes, but I did want to send this to you as a remembrance of Lourdes. The evening procession was especially striking, but there is so much faith here and hope… We saw Bernadette’s house this afternoon and made our way up the Via Crucis, from which the whole valley came into view. I remembered all of you at Mass – please pray for Your loving child, Vicky
