    I am so grateful to connect to your website, Your Excellency. I first heard you speak on the Church Militant website. I am learning much from reading the posting s here.Many thanks for your courage and wisdom in expressing the truth of Christ’s teaching. The Church is being attacked from within, but always, we need faith and hope that Christ will triumph. Thanks for all you do and prayers for your health and good spirits!

    Then you may know how great are the messages our Queen and Mother gave to Ida Peerdeman (Our Lady of all Nations), to Mary Ephrem (Our Lady of America) and nowadays in Medjugorje to everybody all throughout the Earth (Our Lady of Međugorje).

    I am an Spanish man from Canary Islands and my English language is not so advanced as I would like for me to bow at Her Feet on Internet. But maybe you could do something better, to shake a little bit more your american people to glimpse aside. Perhaps they were a lucky guys and gaze Our Lady beside them.
