Many thanks Finbarr for the Journals and may I congratulate you all on producing such an interesting piece of work. I just could not put them down and have gone over their contents over and over again as have many of the other sisters here who are not from Athenry but found the articles so entertaining. Could you please let me have a copy when you distribute them.

Assuring you of our prayers for the success of your work.

God Bless
