 As you know, I have great devotion to our Blessed Mother especially under the title of Our Lady of Guadalupe and it is for her that I am writing.

On October 28th, I had the great privilege and honor of meeting with a gentleman, Larry Behr, who is the president of the board of directors for an exciting project called the ARCH OF THE TRIUMPH OF THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY and International Shrine to the Holy Innocents. I was pleased to learn that this ambitious endeavor has the backing of many noteworthy Catholic pro-life organizations and personalities from throughout the USA.  It is PRO-LIFE and it is a GOOD project!

I was truly excited when I got to personally stand on the proposed site for this long, overdue tribute to Our Blessed Mother, with whose secure help our country was originally founded. The plans include the erection of an exquisite, golden-colored arch that would rise 700 feet into the sky from Buffalo, New York. Because it will stand as the tallest building in the world, I feel that it will be a beacon of light which will shine so brightly that it will draw people from all over to this beautiful peninsula overlooking the eastern side of Lake Erie.

From my heart, I feel that this arch will stand as a token of our appreciation to Our Lady for her continual help and protection; but more importantly as a symbol of our true FAITH in the Triune God, our never-ending HOPE in the coming of the Kingdom, and our unselfish LOVE to others.

You may already be aware of the existence of this project and that is great; but I am especially taking the time to write to you because I discovered that this extremely important project is just in its infancy, so to speak, and is in need of a great deal of enthusiastic response from the people of the entire USA. This response must be first and foremost in the form of prayers because prayers are always powerful!

Secondly, this response must come in the form of financial assistance and no donation is considered small in the eyes of our Lord and Lady. What is important is that when gifts are given, that they be given "from the heart" with no desire to receive anything in return. When it is given in this way, unexpected graces will be bestowed from our gracious God through the Immaculate Heart of our dearest Mother.
