It is with great sadness that we inform you that Mrs. Rosemary Ross of Covington, KY, died on September 20, 2010.
Rosemary was the sister of Brother Joe Stander and the Aunt of Father Kip Stander. At the suggestion
of her brother, she made The Marian Library her 'favorite charity', and over the years made
many generous contributions. Since her brother's death, her contributions
were "in memory of Bro. Joseph Stander."
In early September, we received a contribution from her, and then contributions began coming
in her memory. She had designated in her obituary that memorial donations were to
be made to The Marian Library.
In your prayers, please remember this very generous lady and her family.
We are pleased to inform you that Ann E. Zlotnik is now the new Graphics Designer at The Marian Library/IMRI. She received her Bachelor

Benedict XVI has conferred a papal decoration on a devotion to Mary as she is revered in the Diocese of Jaen. The Pope has given the Golden Rose to the Virgen de la Cabeza (literally, Virgin of the Head), the patron of the diocese. This is the first Marian image in Spain to receive the now uncommon honor.
Last Wednesday at a press conference, Bishop Ramón del Hoyo of Jaen displayed the Golden Rose--a golden rosebush complete with leaves
and flowers in a Renaissance silver vase decorated with the papal coat of arms.
The inscription in Latin says: "Benedict XVI. Golden Rose. For the image of the Blessed Virgen de la Cabeza, Heavenly
Patroness of the Diocese of Jaen. Most gracious concession. November
The bishop of Jaen requested the Golden Rose from the Pope on the occasion of the Jubilee Year being observed in the diocese in honor of
its patroness on the centenary of her coronation....
