Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger

Apostolic Palace

00120 Vatican City State, Europe

Your Eminence,

I am very discouraged by the results of the investigation of the events in Emmitsburg, Maryland USA. I feel it is my duty to at least try to make you aware that a very serious error has been made. I have enclosed my testimony regarding what has happened in my life as a result of being at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church during the apparitions of The Blessed Virgin Mary to Gianna Talone Sullivan. I would not be sending this to you if it were not true.

Thank you,
