Very nice Letter from Merita

Note from Felix Marquez: “What a wonderful pilgrimage this has been.  May we ever be thankful for the blessings we have received, and may we continue to pray for each other.  God bless all.”
Below are the links for Ave Maria Radio archives of shows recorded during this trip
May 2nd Segment 1: the first hour has her interview with Steve (with our cheering) & the second hour has Hector.
May 5th Segment 2: in the first hour Teresa reports on her experience on this pilgrimage. 

Note from Thomas Govern: “Just a few comments on the Rome pilgrimage and the experience.  As usual, the overall experience was outstanding. Good people, good times, blessed experiences, arrange by a great travel agency and led by the premier faith sharing couple has to end up great. One of the very special things about your pilgrimages is spending time with people who think alike.  I don’t know how you would work that into your marketing materials but it is very real and not an accident.  Perhaps it is because of your reputation…Anyway, I enjoyed it very much. Keep up the good work. Your energy is contagious.”
