The following letter was written by Fr. Gabriel Gillen, O.P. for Blackfriars, an official publication of the Dominican Foundation. Fr. Gillen serves as the Executive Director of the Dominican Foundation in New York City.
Whether it is witnessing to the real presence of Our Lord during a Eucharistic procession in the streets of Memphis or standing up for the unborn during the March for Life in DC, the friars are joyfully carrying out their mission of seeking the salvation of souls.
In this issue, you will read about Brother Irenaeus, who is laying down his life to fulfill this same mission. It is because of your generosity that we can educate Brother Irenaeus and Brother Albert. You will also learn about how your support made all the difference in the world for Tammy and Zachary.
Read about how your support allowed Father Nicanor to preach to thousands of souls struggling with end of life issues. There are also names, too numerous to mention, hidden heroes like the friars who hear countless confessions and courageously preach homilies at daily Mass that inspire others like Nicole to share her own heart-warming story in what seemed like a cold, hopeless situation.
Only in heaven will we realize the full extent of all the souls that were reached because of your generosity. Until then, be assured of our daily prayers!
