"It is very agreeable to acknowledge receipt of your letter of June 26, Feast of the Sacred Heart.
Really this is the seventh time in four years that I have the satisfaction to receive a letter from you.
By your letter I am informed of the great and important event, the Fatima Peace Conference on the next October 8. I thank you sincerely for such a fraternal invitation and I am sorry to communicate that I cannot participate because, 1) I am only a simple emeritus bishop, who represents nobody or nothing. 2) I am 83 years. I have many pastoral commitments with which I can't entrust to others. But, in exchange for my nonparticipation I assure you my presence in spirit and my prayers for the total success of the Conference.”
With my cordial greetings, I remain fraternally Yours in Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
Bishop Emeritus of Illapel, Chile
