Maracaibo, September 20,  2016

 Monsignor J. Douglas Deshotel

Diocese of Lafayette 


Dear Monsignor,

 A cordial greeting in Jesus and Mary Most Holy.

 The purpose of this letter is to convey to you that we have been very pleased with brother Thomas Smith’s visit to our parish, Our Lady of the Rosary, in the city of Maracaibo, where he has held several days of prayer, healing and liberation, generating many testimonies in the parishioners attending the Eucharist, including the adjoining parishes.

  Brother Thomas has shown himself to be a man of God, who with patience and humility devotes about eight hours of the day to attend to every one who comes seeking help for healing of physical and spiritual sufferings.

I, for my part, celebrate the Eucharist and hear Confessions during the healing services.  

  He has never received money or any stipend for the work he performs nor does he celebrate any sacrament.

 The visits of brother Thomas to this parish, and to those of my brother priests, have been a blessing and have been approved by our Archbishop, Monsignor Ubaldo Ramón Santana Sequera.

   I close for now and wishing that the Blessed Virgin Mary will protect you always.

  Fr. Jorge Dos Passos Molero
