Lack of Funds and Canon Law Experts by Los Angeles Archdiocese Won't Deter Fr. Aloysius Sainthood Cause.

(LOS ANGELES, California March 10, 2013) Two weeks ago Archbishop Jose Gomez disclosed that the Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles "lacks funds and canon law experts for a sainthood cause." While disappointing, this admission by the Archdiocese does not prevent a group called The Friends of Father…

February 9, 1972 - Under Obedience to Superior General

Actually, what Father Aloysius did is quite remarkable. Under obedience to his General Superior in Rome he founded a new religious order in Fatima, Portugal. The date of the General's letter is February 9, 1972. The order consisted of two branches - the religious and the laity. In 1976 Father went with pilgrims to the Holy Land. He had an audience with the Latin Patriarch, and dedicated his work at the place known as the Holy Sepulcher. In 1978 a formal agreement was reached with the…

Great Monarch and Father Aloysius - Parallels

I've been studying the life of Fr. Aloysius Ellacuria, CMF. Some have pointed out certain parallels in Father's life and references to the great monarch.

1. Both are identified with France. Fr. Aloysius is from the Basque provinces. Three are located in France. In his time, Napoleon, he was considering a completely separate status, as a separate nation, for the Basques. They are unified with their language and culture.

2. The Fleur-de-Lis as a…

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.
Your friend,

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.

Hello Father,
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!

Hello Father,
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.

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
