A great honour

Dear Friends,
Yesterday I received a little parcel from the Roman Catholic Episcopate, 1247 Kolborn Place, Ottawa ON K1H 8K9. The beautiful card is written in French, and this is the translation:

Member Emeritus of the Work of the Holy Land

At the request of
 the great spiritual family of the Custodia Terræ Sanctæ,
we certify that the name of Father Melvin Doucette, M. Afr.,
is inscribed in the Register of distinguished benefactors of the Work ofthe Holy Land.
This entry as “Member Emeritus”
gives a share, during life and after death, of all the spiritual fruits
granted by the popes to individuals affiliated with the Work of 
the Holy Land.

Holy Land Commissariat in Canada
Father C. Bourdeau

P.S. I received with the beautiful card, a number of gifts: a beautiful rosary, a cross and a picture of St. Anthony of Padua. I am indeed grateful that they have inscribed me in this great work.
Father Melvin Doucette
