  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.  
      A Snapshot  
  The 48th Anniversary honoring Our Lady of the Roses, Mary Help of Mothers on Saturday, June 23, and Sunday, June 24, was a resounding success. Over 230 pilgrims attended the Anniversary Vigil and 125 attended the Anniversary Banquet at the LaGuardia Plaza Hotel, a new and upscale venue for the big pilgrimage weekend.  
          Devotees from the four corners of the world assembled, including from Africa, Asia, Europe, Central America, Canada and, of course, the United States of America.
        It was impressive and uplifting to see so many of different color, race and tongue raising their hearts in prayer to the Good Father, especially through the Holy Rosary, that God's blessing and peace may rain down upon this fragile and troubled world that is teetering upon destruction.
        Four priests heard confessions for two and a half hours as scores of pilgrims cleansed their souls through the Sacrament of Penance.

          The theme for this year's Anniversary was: "Moving the needle. . . towards a full-scale, transparent investigation of the apparitions of Bayside. It has never happened. Period."
        Michael Mangan delivered a powerful and encouraging talk at the Anniversary Banquet on his and fellow brother, Darryl's, successful Mission in Rome.
        Truly this glorious event made Our Lady of the Roses, Mary Help of Mothers proud of Her friends, whose prayer and sacrifice in making this pilgrimage will be remembered unto eternity.
          Thank you so much to all who contributed in any way in making the 48th Anniversary an unforgettable one.
