(A message from Patrick Benedict, President of the Saint Michael the Archangel Organization)
November 12th, 2008
Firstly, I am very happy to report to you that many people supported the October 18th, 2008 WORLDWIDE ROSARY FOR UNBORN BABIES prayer event. Support came in from at least one source for each of the following nations: Portugal, Ireland, Malta, England, Australia, Latvia, Tanzania, Italy, Lithuania, Croatia, Czech Republic,Philippines, United States, Canada, India, Peru, Ghana, Kenya, and Poland. Please note: There was no requirement to contact the Saint Michael the Archangel Organization, so the list may actually be longer.
Secondly, the Saint Michael the Archangel Organization is now in the process of coordinating the 10,000 MASSES FOR UNBORN BABIES effort, scheduled to take place from January 13th - January 21st, 2009. This Novena of Masses will be offered for the following intention: For the protection of unborn human persons. I greatly encourage you to help with this effort by having one or more Masses offered. Information about this can be found at www.SaintMichaelTheArchangelOrganization.org. I also very much encourage you to let many other people(including your parish priest(s)) know about the 10,000 MASSES FOR UNBORN BABIES effort(an "Information Page/Bulletin Insert" is available at the above-mentioned website).
Thirdly, the Saint Michael the Archangel Organization was founded in the year 2007. The Organization has coordinated the following: ROSARY FOR LIFE SUNDAY(October 14th, 2007); ONE MILLION ROSARIES FOR UNBORN BABIES(May 3rd, 2008); and, the WORLDWIDE ROSARY FOR UNBORN BABIES(October 18th, 2008). As mentioned, the 10,000 MASSES FOR UNBORN BABIES is presently being coordinated. It is hoped there will be a 2nd annual ONE MILLION ROSARIES FOR UNBORN BABIES prayer event on May 1st and 2nd, 2009 as well as a 2nd annual WORLDWIDE ROSARY FOR UNBORN BABIES prayer event on October 17th, 2009.
During the time of its existence, the Saint Michael the Archangel Organization has been blessed to receive a total of about $2,800 in donations. Expenses have included postage stamps, photocopying, etc. Presently, the Saint Michael the Archangel Organization has only about $300 in its checking account. (A fundraising letter was mailed out recently to 100 or so people, and I am hoping this has resulted and/or will result in many donations for the Saint Michael the Archangel Organization.)
I want to ask you to consider doing the following: Please send an email to the Saint Michael the Archangel Organization after you read this today and let it be known that you would like to make a donation. A donation envelope will then be sent to your mailing address. Your donation may be less than a dollar, or it may be much more. I simply ask that you consider being a part of this effort to help the Saint Michael the Archangel Organization. You may send your email to PatrickBenedict@rcin.net. Please include your mailing address. I am hoping at least one thousand emails come in. I will plan on letting you know the results later(The Saint Michael the Archangel Organization is a non-profit corporation, but donations are not tax-deductible).
I extend a tremendous "thank you" to each person who participated in and/or promoted the October 18th WORLDWIDE ROSARY FOR UNBORN BABIES prayer event.
Patrick Benedict, President
Saint Michael the Archangel Organization
p.s. The Saint Michael the Archangel Organization has been blessed time and time again by the dear lady who does its website. If you would be so kind as to pray one Hail Mary for her, I sure would appreciate it. And, though she may be a little surprised to know this is being asked for her, I believe she will be very appreciative.
