The first letter is from New York.
Our Blessed Mother has and always will be my life. I love her. She has been there for me countless times throughout my life. I was lucky enough four years ago to go to Paris, France, where I visited the Miraculous Medal Church where she appeared to Saint Catherine Labouré. I fell on my knees and cried when I looked at the altar where she appeared. I was mesmerized beyond belief. A feeling I had never felt came over me. I believe she is always there for everyone. She truly is our Mother. My own mother taught me to pray and honor her. She, too, loved our Blessed Mother very deeply. I believe it was our Lady who she saw before she passed away. I adore her and honor her every single day of my life. I don’t know where I would be without her presence in my life.
The second letter is from California.
One day, when my daughter came home from school, she said her throat was bothering her. So I took her into my arms and said, “Let’s ask Mother Mary to pray for us.” I reached over to my little bottle of holy water that contains some water from Lourdes, France. As I blessed my daughter I talked with our Lady saying, “Saint Bernadette, in obedience, dug into the earth as you instructed and up came the spring waters which grew and grew. With this water please pray that my daughter will receive the healing she needs.” At that moment, both my daughter and I smelled a beautiful sweet fragrance like that of sweet orange blossoms. My daughter was amazed and I felt truly blessed that our Lady chose then to show her loving presence in this way. Thank you Mother Mary!
