Our Lady, June 21, 1992


Michael delivers a rousing talk:
Moving the needle . . .towards a full-scale, transparent investigation of the apparitions of Bayside. It has never happened. Period.

Productive and encouraging
President Michael Mangan (top, rt.) and Darryl Bolisay, LOSM, had two separate private audiences in May with His Eminence Robert Cardinal Sarah (top) and His Eminence Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke. The Cardinals were kind, attentive and pastoral.
Cardinal Sarah is the Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments. Cardinal Burke is Cardinal Patron of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta and Member and Prefect Emeritus of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura.

Dear Michael and Lay Order
of St. Michael,
       It was a great 48th and well worth the expense of SMWA! I understand that you are carrying a deficit of $6500 from the enormous Anniversary costs. Here's my thoughtful gift (tax-deductible) to help cover the 48th Anniversary gap and to assist with the upcoming big St. Michael weekend events.
