    Hello: Do you know Father Peter Mary Rookey at Our Lady of Sorrows Church in Chicago? He is going to celebrate his 96th birthday this month. I’ve been trying to call him but I always get a recording. If you speak to him please tell him I pray for him every day and that my sister Hilda and I always think of him. Because of him I say the Rosary everyday and the divine mercy chaplet on the Rosary he gave me that is from medjugorie. Thank you, Sandra Barone. P.S. God Bless You
