The reaction from the Dominicans

Posted in Blog

I received a message from Sister Mary Ellen Gevelinger the Prioress General, who didn’t like this initiative or the name Father Mazzuchelli Society, and wants me not to mention the Sinsinawa Dominicans anywhere on the internet. One point to clarify is that the Father Mazzuchelli Society supports Father Mazzuchelli’s official Cause for Beatification and Canonization and does not at all represent itself as being the Cause! Monday October 7th is the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, patronal feast of the Sinsinawa Dominican Congregation of the Most Holy Rosary. Please pray for the Blessed Mother’s affection and care for these Sisters especially on Monday.

I’ve also had a message from a wonderful Dominican friar well known to many Catholics who read my Report, thanked me, and asked for prayers for the Dominican Order. He knew Sister Julius Loosbrock, who is mentioned in my article on Sister Francis Assisi Loughery, and had met Sister Francis Assisi and Mother Benedicta. I am sending him a book of the Report and our edition of Father Mazzuchelli’s Memoirs.

Any Dominican religious who would like a copy of the Report on the Sinsinawa Dominicans Today sent to them, please don’t hesitate to contact me. For that matter if a Dominican really wants a copy of Father Mazzuchelli’s Memoirs, I would happily fulfill such a request as far as my means allow.
