The Family, Church and Nation Conference was a tremendous success!
God provided the necessary window of opportunity for the accomplishment of this conference. The very next day, new "guidelines" reduced the numbers able to be in a meeting room once again, but we were able to complete our conference just before the new rules came into effect.
Thanks to all who attended and helped us by cooperating with wearing face masks, putting up with the need to maintain the necessary restrictions regarding rooms counts which required the need to have tickets so that we would not exceed room count regulations, and to accomplish many financial needs. We still have a way to go financially, but we were able to pay for the speakers and the hotel expenses, some of it being on credit cards. If you can continue to assist us financially, we will be grateful!
Positive comments included being around and enjoying others again, as well as attending excellent and inspiring talks. We also appreciate the Elegante hotel staff who did all possible to facilitate our conference, advise us regarding safety measures, and help us so that we would be within all the necessary regulations and not risk being shut down.
We thank everyone for their cooperation and their prayers. We also thank Jose Melendez, Cody Stowe and Richard George for helping with live streaming and video. We hope to have information available at a later date regarding the possibility of recordings. In the meantime, please pray for Ramona Rosales of Holy Family Media. Having another MS episode prevented Holy Family Media from coming to record CDs for this conference.
God bless all of you.

DECEMBER 8TH – HOUR OF GRACE (12:00pm to 1:00pm)
(Acknowledgements: A very special Thank you to the Felician Sisters in general who printed this story in their AVE MARIA magazine and who so graciously translated this story from the Polish into English in order to comply with the request of the Blessed Virgin Mary that this message be sent throughout the world. Thanks also to Ethelyn David in Vancouver, BC for sending this.)
During the period of November 24, 1946 to December 8, 1947, the Blessed Mother appeared to Sister Pierina in a little church in Montichiari, Italy, eleven times.
On the first appearance the Blessed mother told Sister Pierina She wanted to be known as the “Mystical Rose,” and that an hour of grace should be kept at noon, December 8th, in all the Catholic Churches of the world. The Blessed Mother wanted this to be known through all of Italy, and the entire world.
It was November 16, 1947 when Sister Pierina was finishing Her Thanksgiving after Holy Communion when she saw a great light. She then saw a vision of the Blessed Mother as the “Mystical Rose”.

Therese Lorentz has been on assignment the past 23 years with God.
Her first task was to gather the St. Thomas Aquinas Society, and the second was, with them, to bring retreat days, healing Masses and conferences to Colorado Springs. Since 1991, the St. Thomas Aquinas Society has hosted 17 annual free conferences encompassing three days of speakers, Mass, healing services and Eucharistic Adoration.
This year’s free conference, to be held Aug. 1-3 at Pikes Peak Center in downtown Colorado Springs, includes a noted Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN) host as well as a speaker on Eucharistic miracles. The theme of the conference is “Blessed Be God.”
Lorentz, a member of St. Patrick Parish in Colorado Springs, explains her involvement with the St. Thomas Aquinas Society and the conferences: “Back in June of 1991, I woke up with the name, ‘St. Thomas Aquinas Society’ clearly in my mind, and the understanding to start a prayer group.
