As an Aliquippa native, long gone from home now, I wish to say that it does my heart good to see that there is some Catholicism left in the old place. Good for honoring this holy Catholic monarch. Good for having again the Holy Catholic Mass. Now fight for Catholic Doctrine! Defend Catholic Truth with all your strength. Do not be silent. Stand up for those who defend the Faith! Fight for Faith! My Aliquippa ancestors fought for and defended the Faith with all that was in their power until they drew their last breath. I intend to follow their example.

Again, thank you all. Pray for the Consecration of Russia. Vive le Christ Roi!
