Dearest Patti Melvin,
Greetings! I received today your Endorsement Letter to the Bishop of Imus, the Dedicated Decades Winter edition, and leaflets and booklets. I am so excited to start this mission. I am now an official ULRA missionary and promoter! I will arrange for an audience with the Bishop to spread this devotion with full knowledge of the local church. Please include me in your prayers for the success of my mission. I can attract and lead people to salvation offered by Christ. I pray that everything is successful and this mission is fruitful.
I am a former Seminarian of the Society of the Divine Savior (Salvatorians) for 4-1/2 years. In 2016, I left the Community but I am still a Salvatorian. I am now working as College Registrar and also a Philosophy Lecturer at St. Dominic College of Asia in Cavite, so the shirt I am wearing today is my uniform. When I arrived home, my house helper handed me the envelope and, due to my excitement, I asked for a photo to be taken immediately.
Currently, I am also doing my Masters Degree in Philosophy at the Royal and Pontifical University of Santo Tomas, Manila. I will be 25 years old this coming March 5.
As of now, I will be doing it alone. Don’t worry about it Patti, I am used to spreading this devotion alone since 2010 when I became a member and that was in another province. However, I believe that others will come to help me spread this devotion. Hence, it is very important that I first meet with the Bishop so that he can endorse me to all the parishes in his diocese.
Thank you very much! Regards to all our ULRA Family across the world, Yours in Our Lady and St. Philomena,
