On Saturday I lost a good friend. One of those good friends that no matter what, she always had a positive attitude and a great outlook on life. Angie was a secretary and she always answered the phone the exact same way, no matter how she felt that day. If I answered, she let off an electric jolt and quickly asked me a ton of questions: How am I doing? How are my children doing? How’s my husband doing? I bet if I brought up the pets, she’d ask how they were doing as well. She was always concerned about my illnesses; she was an extended member of our family.
Well, that cheerful, good soul left us at 1:00 AM after a fatal stroke. I always make plans and arrangements out of my hectic schedule when I travel to go visit her at work (Angie lived outside the US). I either went by myself or brought my kids to her, because she loved my kids so much! When, where do you find a secretary that loves your kids as if they were her grandchildren? That even if I didn’t work with her nor see her, she was very caring, understanding and treat all customers with hapiness and respect?
Needless to say, it has been difficult to deal with this, and it will certainly get worse when the time comes to stop by, and look at that sign-in window, peek in and not see Angie anymore.
Angie, I want to let you know something: I love you very much; I never got the chance to tell you, but you could tell that I did because of the way you have treated all of my family. With me, distance never mattered…well, I admit we’d have had lunch together often, and go to the casino so you could teach me how to play the penny slot machines! Angie, I promise that my husband and I will go to the casino and play those penny machines, so I can think of you sitting next to us, laughing and showing me the tricks of the trade.
I feel sad that you will not watch the kids grow up, or that you will miss them on our next trip. Hopefully you will come by the office, in Spirit, all healthy and beautiful as you are so you can enjoy their growth, their achievements and their progress. I wanted to talk to you and tell you how much better I have felt recently, and to please pray for me so I keep it up and wish me luck. Now it is my turn to pray for you, thank you for your positive effect on my life, my husband’s, and the rest of my family. I bet all the patients will do the same, along with me.
Angie, will you do me a favor? Will you find my mom and give her a hug for me?
With all my love and may Jesus shines upon you,

Due to the demand of my readers, I need to provide this update: I CAN send icons of Maria Rosa Mystica; the problem is I am in very short supply. For my friends in India, I am amazed and love the devotion to Our Blessed Mother. So, for the record, here it goes:
1-I CANNOT SEND MY ROSA MYSTICA STATUE ANYWHERE AROUND THE WORLD. I can only pilgrim from house to house where I live. That’s the way it’s supposed to be.
2-Because I am in short demand for icons, I will take both sizes I have here and see if they can print them the same way I have them. That way I can supply icons. Please when I reach you, as soon as you can receive the icon take it to church and have it blessed. Kerala‘s YouTube videos illustrate what happens with Our Mother’s intercession.
4- As of today, I have not heard nor received anything new. I guess I will press them for more items but no statues! :)
5- HERE IS THE INFORMATION TO OBTAIN MORE INFORMATION ABOUT MARIA ROSA MYSTICA. PLEASE ASK THEM IF THEY CAN SEND YOU A STATUE, ICONS AND OTHER MATERIALS. DONATION IS APPRECIATED. I PAID MORE THAN $200 BUT IT’S WORTH IT:

I will personally see to it that this information will help me obtain more icons and more MRM medals and other supplies. In the meantime, I plan to take my icons to a print company and see if they can duplicate them so I can place an order and satisfy the demand. This is part of my pilgrimage, since I cannot take my statue all over the world.
If you happen to receive a Maria Rosa Mystica icon, please take it to church and have it blessed.
Thanks and I hope this helps!
