Dear Fr. Al Pehrsson,

It was my pleasure to meet you this past Saturday at the party celebrating the 45th anniversary of your ordination. The full house at the 4:30 mass clearly shows the respect and love people in Emmitsburg hold for you.

Since November 1998 I have spent a lot of time in Emmitsburg and the experience has been both the most rewarding and difficult experience of my life as outlined in the document I sent to you this past December. I now feel that I should send you the papers that continue where the last ones left off.

As I said the last time, I am not looking for anything in return other than to know in my heart that I have done everything I can to respond to the many blessings received as a direct result of being present at the apparitions of Our Lady of Emmitsburg.


Thank you and God bless you,
