The following letter was submitted by Irvin L. Kloska of Elkhart, IN who was the organizer of the first official Our Lady of America pilgrimage to Sylvan Springs in Rome City, IN on July 14, 2006. Irv is one who has responded to Our Lady's call again and again. Here, he invites you to do the same and experience, for yourself, the loving embrace of Our Lady's arms as She receives you at the place She chose to reveal Herself as Our Lady of America in 1956.

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ:
Have you heard the call? What are you doing about it? As you have read on this BLOG some people have heard and have been rewarded handsomely. We have read here that Our Lady of America is asking to “bring me my children” “bring me all of my children”. When the Blessed Mother said this She said it at Sylvan Springs, so obviously She is calling us there. When Our Lady does something like this it is for a reason and in my mind She wants to give us something. That something can be graces, conversion, physical or emotional healing or simply peace. She did not say bring me my Catholic children. She said, “Bring me all of my children”!
We have had the privilege of praying with many people of different faith traditions over these past few years, including Jewish, at the Springs. I am confident in saying that they all received something from Our Lady and, or, Her Son Jesus.
The Blessed Mother appeared not only to Sister Mildred Mary Neuzil at Sylvan Springs, but also to two other people in the last year. Both of these current events were posted on this BLOG. She appeared to a woman from South Bend on July 14, 2006 and to a man from Huntington on May 24, 2007. Many healings and conversions have also been recorded. Do we need to hear more? Please answer Her call.
This morning I chartered a 56-passenger bus to go to the Friday night rosary on June 29, 2007. I am doing this on blind faith that I can fill it. I did the same thing for the “first pilgrimage” last summer when I booked 37 rooms at Sylvan Springs while not having a single person committed. In three days they were filled. Our Lady is here and She is calling us. I personally will do everything in my power to bring as many of the children I can to Her.
If you are a believer, I challenge you to do the same. Bring them by car, bring them by bus or bring them by plane. Bring as many as you can and as often as you can. You will not be sorry that you made the effort. Our Lord and His Mother cannot be outdone in generosity!
Peace to everyone in the name of Our Lady of America,
Irvin L. Kloska
