Dear Remnant Friends:

The response to the 23rd annual Summer Symposium in Gardone has been overwhelming. It is only February and we already have fifty participants. Given the time left until the event, I have taken the precaution of reserving another ten rooms for still more participants. Please do not delay your application if you are interested in attending.

We have also never had such a large number of speakers, priests, musicians, and scholarship applicants as we have this year either. We have raised a significant amount of funds to pay for their attendance---but still need $24,000 to accommodate all of them.

And we do need all of them! A number of the speakers are active in groups preparing for battle at the Synod this coming autumn, and they must have solid troops behind them. In consequence, we have decided not only to discuss the topic already announced for 2015, but that of a more organized, militant, international defense of Catholic marriage, the Catholic family, and the Catholic Faith in general as well. Now, much more than ever before, we must bring the full intellectual and activist program of the Roman Forum to fruition. Please consider a TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATION, checks made out to the Roman Forum and mailed to Dr. John Rao, 11 Carmine St., Apt. 2C, New York, New York 10014. The Traditionalist cause needs your help.

     John C. Rao (D.Phil., Oxford)

     Chairman, The Roman Forum
