Letters, Letters, and more Letters!

It’s time to begin a letter writing campaign! Making known our zeal for opening of the cause for Sr. Marie is of paramount importance at this stage. This morning I just posted my letters to the Archbishop of Izmir, the Archbishop of Dijon, the General Superior of the Congregation of the Mission (Vincentians), and the Mother General of the Daughters of Charity. Please take the time to do your part in promoting the cause for Sr. Marie de Mandat-Grancey, D.C. 1837-1915, Foundress of Mary’s House, by writing your letters too. These leaders in our Church need to know how we feel; that we desire the Cause for Sr. Marie's Beatification to be formally opened. Please write and tell them how you treasure Sr. Marie’s gift to us and her crucial, yet mostly unrecognized, role in finding Mary’s House. Sr. Marie worked and sacrificed so diligently in her efforts to first find Mary’s House and then make it what it is today, a holy place where people of all faiths meet and pray for the cause of peace and brotherhood. May Sr. Marie bless you for your efforts! Thank you.
