Guardian’s Request Letter to Host Pastor
City, State, Zip Code
Dear Father _________,
Praised be Jesus and Mary!
My name is __________________. I represent the apostolate of the Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe. The Missionary Image is blessed by Monsignor Diego Monroy, Rector of the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Please read the article What’s So Special About the Missionary Image?
It has journeyed throughout America. Monsignor Monroy blessed Dan Lynch and these images for the mission of promoting sanctity of the family, solidarity of the Church in America, a culture of life and a civilization of love. We are scheduling a Visitation of the Image to your area which will include Hours of Prayer for Life, Peace and Protection.
We hope for your support, encouragement and cooperation to host a Visitation of the Missionary Image to your parish. The Visitation will be planned by a Team. We do not expect you to do the work. If you would like a Visitation, perhaps you could recommend a parish representative to help.
A Visitation of the Image is very simple. It usually stays a day, a half day or sometimes few hours, depending on the program. Suggested programs are the Hour of Prayer for Life, Peace and Protection; Holy Sacrifice of the Mass; Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament with Eucharistic Adoration; or Rosary Devotions followed by Consecration; talks of the Mission by us or you and veneration of the Image. Free-will offerings and sales of religious goods are requested for the support of the Missionary Image apostolate.
I will call you so that we may meet and discuss this further.
May Our Lady of Guadalupe pray for us.
Sincerely in Christ,
