Dear Brothers in Christ, you are amazing. We have some of the original letters written by Brother Ralph and Brother Gregory. Your exquisite charity and ultimate kindness overflows from those letters.

You gave work to many, many of our exiled sisters. You provided extra nutritious meals to build them up after many months of little food. You helped them get medical assistance which was such a HUGE gift. Do you remember the day our Sisters got quite ill because they had never seen the poison ivy plant and they went about cutting branches to use in floral decorations for the altar! You built a brand new convent for us; you built a side choir for us near the church sanctuary and have placed a plaque on the way with the names of all of our Sisters who worked there with you.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts with assurance of our prayers for you, dear Brothers in Christ.
