The Friends of Father Aloysius

Bringing together the friends of Father Aloysius Ellacuria, C.M.F.

Dear Father Kevin.and Friends..a little update....I just remembered that during an R&R{my Husband Tony worked for the Ralph M Parsons Co in Saudi Arabia} he visited was a strange and wonderful was very cold...when he arrived by train it was very late and no one was at the station.....suddenly out of no where came a black car with 2 small children in the back seat! the driver elegantly dressed asked where my husband wanted to go and ended up taking him to I believe the Claritian Seminary! MY husband thought he was going to a hotel... as the driver unloaded his luggage the 2 children got out of the the car and ran off into the husband recalled they looked like the Fatima children,,,when my husband turned around to pay the driver he had totally disappeared! during the night in the Seminary husband agonized between coming home right away or staying longer in Fatima...he prayed Dear God show me a thing he knew.....he had such pain in his legs he could not even walk! He knew his answer! The next day after a Mass in the Basilica he visited the home of Lucia and met her living older sister,,,who although blind..warmly embraced my husband and told him Everything will be fine ...say the Rosary say the Rosary! My husband Cried profusely! She kissed his face and tears!..I thought you would enjoy this story.

I just read this blog post, nine years after it was written by Belita William. I can't believe it has taken me this long to read your wonderful post. What a story. Please be sure that your story moves our readers to say the rosary. These "signal graces" you mention are uplifting to all of us. Thank you for this wonderful post!

Dear Father Kevin! What a pleasant surprise! 

I was "cleaning out" some of my e mail posts ,when I came across your letter! My late Husband Tony was a Seminarian in his youth at the Dominguez Seminary and Silverpeak Seminary. He was cut short,by a family emergency and was unable to complete his Vocation. His last year ,was the year Father Aloysius came to Dominguez! He briefly met Father ,before leaving the Seminary..God had different plans for my Husband.  Many years later we were married and had a big family. WE lived in Saudi Arabia for many years,that was the time of the visit to Fatima by my Husband,that I wrote you about.  in 2009,he passed away peacefully at home. Today,I am a liturgical Artist,I paint for the Carmelite Order in Alhambra Ca. I would like you to see a painting I did of Father Aloysius. I plan to give it to your Order one day. You can reach me at
