Dear Mr. Picciano:
Thank you very much for the letter and material sent to me sometime ago, regarding the Catholic Men's Fellowship. I appreciate the work of the Catholic Men's Fellowship in the Diocese of Orange. The opportunities provided me to visit the fellowship groups in the parish have been a source of consolation and hope for me as Bishop.
Your manual is a helpful guide. I am sure that it will enable this valuable movement for the Catholic Men to grow and flourish.
Be assured of my abiding admiration and prayer for that this may be so. May our Blessed Mother, Santa Maria de Guadalupe look kindly on you and your family, protecting you under the mantle of Her maternal love.
Most Reverend Jaime Soto
Diocese of Orange
