Letters from Our Friends
Dear Father Gruner
Thank you so much for all your hard work for Our Blessed Lady. I have read most of the information from the Fatima web site. The one that caught my eye the most was the section called Heaven's Weapons. I learned a lot, there were many things I did not know, like the Five First Saturdays, the Miraculous Medal, and so on.
So about four months ago, I put together a packet called Heaven's Weapons. They are distributed all over the city of San Antonio to different Catholic Parishes, jailhouses, etc., wherever they can be placed for people to get one. They will NEVER be for sale.
Each packet contains the following: a thick, light blue card with a red rose imprint, plus scarlet ribbon flowing through the front -- all lettering on the card is black ink. Each color represents something that I will share with you. The blue paper represents Our Lady, who is always there to help and intercede for us, the scarlet ribbon represents the blood that Christ shed for mankind so that we would be redeemed, and the black ink represents the darkness the soul is in when we are without Him, Christ, in our lives.
On the front of the card it says Heaven's Weapons, then listed on the reverse side are the weapons that your organization provided. Then on the back of the same card are listed the seven Fatima prayers.
Behind this blue card are three pamphlets, in this order: (1) How to Pray the Rosary (with a sheet of the 15 promises to those who recite the Rosary), (2) The Brown Scapular Novena, (3) The Miraculous Medal Novena. Then behind all the printed material is a five decade Rosary, a Brown Scapular and a Miraculous Medal.
All of these things are placed in a zip lock bag that fits the measurement of the novena perfectly. Since the first distribution of the packets, over 300 have been made and given to individuals, and the demand never stops. I make them personally. I use my own materials, color printer, paper, etc. ...
I believe that the reason I am telling you all of this is to let you know that probably at times you may feel that no one is listening to Our Lady's Message, but we are. We are all working like unseen soldiers, we are nobody in other people's eyes, but God knows we are fighting for His Kingdom. So God bless you always, Father Gruner, and the mantle of Our Blessed Mother always be with you.
