Dear Father Kevin,
It is so wonderful to see that you are making such great progress. I pray that many friends ,and not yet friends of Father Aloysius will join you and that together we may present his cause to the Holy See.
I am confident that no matter how many obstacles will be placed in your way, God will open the right doors to help you, and all involved with the process.
We know that Satan will do all he can to delay, obstruct, and even make it look impossible for you to go on however, as long as we all stand united and ask God for His Help you will be able to forge on.
I myself am house bound and will help you with my prayers and please know I will be cheering you on, step by step.
Fr Kevin: Thanks for your warm welcome. I became aquatinted with Fr Alloysius
in an unusual way. One of the deacons in the Church introduced me to Fr
Alloysius post mortum as they say. He took me to Fr.s grave at the Mission
in San Gabriel, CA, having explained to me that he knew Fr. during Fr's lifetime
and that Fr worked several miracles honoring God. As I knelt at his grave, praying the Rosary, I was granted a unique experience. Suddenly, I hear a distinct clear voice saying to me. "At last we meet!" I turned around to see who it was that said this to me, but there was no body there. Then this voice said to me, "Go and by one of the books written about me in the shop and write what I said to you, 'At last we meet!' God has send me to you to be your constant companion and whenever you pray the Rosary, I shall be there to join you in the praying of the Holy Rosary. Fr. Kevin, this is how I became a friend
of Father Alloysius, for he has prayed the rosary with me each day, following
a blessing I receive from him, daily. I attended the meeting you had on Oct 3 at Sacred Heart Parish in Duarte, California. I live a semi-retirement life and have a small ministry, where Holy Mass is celebrated, followed by the blessing of Holy Water and other Sacramentals for the faithful who join me here in
the moutains in a small village called Pine Mt. Club, CA, around two hours
North East of where you hold your meetings. WE briefy spoke by cell phone before you had to go to other duties. Have a safe journey home from you
ministry at Fatima. I was invited to lead a group of lay ministers, whose work included the feeding of the poor, and having visited Garabandol, went forward to Fatima, where I celebrated Mass with the english priests attending from
all over the world, and later, I was given the privilege of processing the Holy
Statue of Our Lady, during the recitation of the Holy Rosary, as the crowd
and I prayed the Rosary. I have pictures of my celebrating Mass and carrying
the Holy Statue. It was particularly hard on me, since the other men were much
shorter than I. Today Fr and I have great conversations before the blessed
Sacrament and he is teaching me all about the Infinite Goodness of God, so
he is also my mentor as well. Sincerely Fr. William F Malloy (friends call me Fr Bill) I know that when he prays with me, God hears our prayers and is very
pleased with our visits. I can certainly understand in a mystical way, why Fr
spent so many nights before the Blessed Sacrament. He is a holy man, and
continues in his priestly ministry and this gives a whole meaning to the popular
phrase, "Thou art a priest forever!" He teaches me than many saints are our friends, if we take the time to obey Our Lord's teachings, Let him, who has ears, listen to what the Holy Spirit tells us!" Prayer is really a two-way conversation between the soul and God, who really answers us and talks to us
because of His Divine Infinite Goodness and His great love for us.
Dear Father Kevin Manion,
I plan to give out the Guardian Angel Prayer in front of an abortion clinic with a picture of Father Aloysius and the testimonial of "Jackie" about her answered prayer when she wanted to have a baby.
Please pray for "turnarounds" and "saves" at the clinic.
Thank you for welcoming me. No, I never met Fr. Aloysius. I've been having a definite "crisis of Faith" over the last year or more with family troubles (my grown son) and financial hard times. I've been praying, of course, and asking to be able to let go and have God take over. Not doing so well with that. I read on the internet that Fr. Aloysius had intervened for those in need and had been associated with miracles. My plight is not nearly as bad as some, I know, but I need a miracle. If not to help my son, then to at least let me feel connected again, and be able to deal with it all. Figured it couldn't hurt, and the more support the better. Thank you for your prayers.
All what I´ve heard up to date about father alloysius is by elvia´s words but i would have liked to get to know him personally, but in any case, I think that now a days I will have the chance to get it if its sanctity cause florish and ends and begins succesfully!
As I mentioned to you before, Father Aloysius was my Spiritual Director. As a gift on my Wedding Day when he married me at Immaculate Heart Church in 1965, he gave me his personal crucifix. Which I have to this day. He told me that it was full of indulgence. I keep it close to me everyday. I don't hang it up on the wall but keep it on my bed next to me when I sleep.
It brings me great comfort & always reminds me of Father & of the special indulgence it holds.
I remember when He did my confession the night before my wedding day. I did not know of his spiritual gifts of reading souls. Every time I thought I confessed all of my sins, he would say to me, & what abt this? It seemed that I was in the confessional booth for an hour.
He totally cleansed my soul & then gave me complete absolution of my sins in Jesus name. How Blessed I was to be able to say not only did he marry me , but would also come to my home for BBQ's.
I kept in touch with Father up until his death. I never saw him again once he left
Phoenix. Shame on me for not having gone to see him in Calif. He always let me know where he was. I always had good intentions of going to see him, yet I never did. That is one of my great regrets in life.
I want to thank-you for what you have done in bringing followers of Father Aloysius that loved him together to share about him..
I know many more that knew Father. He was considered a mystic. They said he would levitate when he would raise the host!. That he also had the gift of healing. I was told all of this when I was 15 years old.
I Pray that God Blesses this ministry in spreading the Good New of Father Aloysius & his great Love of God ( the Word made Flesh) & his Mother.
Rev.fr. Kevin manion se me dificulta la traducion del mensaje pero tengo fe en la hora de que reso el rosario pido porque el padre aloysius interseda por mis hijos ante el trono de nuestro señor jesucristo yasesorado por el imaculado corazon de maria y su siervo san antonio maria claret nuestro padre eterno no podra negarse a subir a los altares a el santo padre aloysius. con maria santisima se puede todo sin maria nada ,
My maiden name was Coelho.Father cured my nephew Christopher Bacich of liver cancer in 1969. He cured me of a back problem that I was told would make it impossible for me to have children. I gave birth to nine and conceived ten. He cured my Mother of arthritis in her feet that was debilitating. He cured my Husband of Hodgekins (lymph cancer ) in November of 1970,we have his medical records and the personal letter father wrote to my mother-in-law confirming the miracle because she wouldn't believe he was cured. Ron is 61 and he cured my daughter Beth when she was two of severe food allergies that were killing her. Father Called us from Fatima often and wrote that he considered our family his family. He asked me to name a daughter after his mom. We named our youngest and only son Theodore Joseph Ellacuria Eason Ted uses his entire name, he is nearly twenty six.
Before I was serious about my husband Father asked me to join his congregation of sisters and to go to Fatima. My heart sang! My parents refused to allow me to go. We married a year later. My daughter Bridget joined a small congregation of sisters name Alianca de Santa Maria in Fatima and took her final vows last year on Dec. 8th. I believe she took my place! The Order is devoted to the message of Fatima and my cousin Sister Angela de Fatima Coelho is vice postulator for the causes of Jacinta and Francisco. She is the former Mistress of Novices for Alianca. My daughter Sister Bridget is now mistress of novices. Sister Angela is also a medical doctor who spent time interviewing Sister Lucia whom I had the privlege of seeing and acknowledging in 1997, on Easter Tuesday . We moved to Fatima where we stayed for nine months and then went back for another stay in 2001. We watched the burning of the twin towers from Fatima and came home to help our daughters who were still here. I go back often as I can and my husband and I will be forming a nonprofit to provide a house for English speaking priests.
yours J Eason

And Merry Christmas to you, too, Father. There are many very important activites going on now and the Association for the Beatification of Father Aloysius Ellacuria is one of them. I will contact candidates for the Board that hopefully will be willing to give of their time and energy to incorporate and establish this association. I look forward to meeting with you and them forthwith.
ps: Did you cancel your cellphone? Do you have a replacement number? I tried calling earlier to explain I couldn't go to San Diego today because of Christmas company.
Unfortunately My Grandmother and Mom have passed away now so I really do not know how they found Fr. they along with my great grandmother, sister and dad used to go to the thursday guild since before I was born, I think. He gave my my First holy Comunion at the age of 5 Dec 5, 1974. And later Brother Salvatory was my Godfather for conformation in 1983.
I also would like to add my Mom had brocken her hand in a freak accident and her had was left stiff, they gave her therapy and nothing would help. I wittnessed Father along with everybody at the guild that day pray over her and she obtained almost instantly full motion of her hand.
I too was helped by father, two years after my communion I was fataly ill they told my parents at montebello community hospital that I had luciemia and proly wouldn't live more than a few months. But as father and the whole guild was praying for me within two weeks they went from luciemia to inemia to maybee a bleeding ulcer then they couldnt find anything wrong with me by 14 days and I was sent home. The doctor told us he didnt believe in God but he saw how we prayed and would hear people that would visit and said maybee there is something to this God and prayer because he knew what the test showed and now there was no explanation to me not being sick at all. I believe it was Father and his prayers for me.
I know Mary Chatterton at the guild is now gone but she would have testified to this for we knew her very well also.
We must have crossed paths during his last eight years if not at the clarition center at 25th anniversary or at a concert.
Thank You for answering me and when you are in Ca my home is open to you. My Family is going To See the shroud of Tourin and back to Medjugoria in May. When we were there last May I could only think of my mom and grandmom praying the rosary with Fr Aloysius.
I was very friends with May Chatterton, and I believe she helped Alta Flocca with the Saturday guild. Did you happen to know Alta Flocca? I leave tomorrow for Texas. I am driving, and I'll arrive on Friday, God willing. Hopefully, we'll be in close contact. Yours in the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Fr. Kevin
Hi Fr. Kevin, thank you for your welcome =D. I saw the previews of the movie already and I hope to see the movie soon.
One of my friends sent me the link of Father Aloysius page through Facebook and since that I start to read everything. I really like everything. We go to Blessed Sacrament church in Hollywood.
My last name is my husband's last name. So, I am not related with her unfortunately. And I ask my husband and he thinks she is not related with him.
I'm from Colombia and I am a medical doctor. Right now I'm waiting to see if I get into my Internal residence. Fr. Kevin thank you so much for your prayers. I hope to know more about all your work.
