    Hi Dear Marilla,

    I am John from Malta. First, I am thankful to God for your voice and I enjoy your music, I recently bought 4 of your Cds and 2 Dvds. I like them very much. Marilla please, I wish a favour from you. Please say a prayer for my mum, she needs a lot of prayer. There’s something wrong with her eyes. Thanks to all, and keep it up.

    From her son John.

    God bless.

    Dear Marilla,

    My wife and I both “take” to God with your singing, which impacts us greatly. You are truly in “tune” with our LORD. Can you do audible bible on CD soon? Also, about the “Songbook,” does that come with you singing the songs? I also believe in your apparitions with “Mary”. Hope you email me back – we share the same Lord Christ.

    God Bless you, many X Marilla!!!

    Your Brother in Christ

    Dear Marilla,

    I am very pleased to listen to one of your spoken word CDs “A call to prayer”.
    It is fabulous and I am grateful to God for it, for the gift you could be for all, everywhere in this world whose soul is yearning for God, or for those who find themselves lost.
    I am from the Ivory Coast and do not know all the songs because I’m a French speaker.
    Unfortunately most of the CDs I have heard from you do not have any words of the your songs inside the CDs, especially “A call to prayer”.
    Even if the talk does not have copy for the listener, what about the songs between each talk?
    Please help we who do not know you and the songs you sing so very well.
    Do we have to pay for the words as well with the CDs?
    If that is the case, could I have the words of the song in “A call to Prayer,” free which I bought at St Paul’s bookshop in Victoria, London the 31st of Dec 2009.
    Happy new year.
    Rosalie,

    Dear Marilla,

    I absolutely love all your songs! I have the CD “Resting In Love” and I’m trying to understand all the lyrics to “You’re The One”. There are a couple lines in the song that I can’t understand, so if it is possible for you to send me the lyrics, I would be very greatful. I love to sing along as I listen to you – it makes me feel very close to Jesus.

    Thank you and God bless,

    Dear Marilla,

    God Bless you, how very gifted you are, thank you for your ministry to me through your songs and video’s. I would like to ask for permission to use 3 of your songs on the ‘ Jesus My Joy’ CD at my funeral (not that I am planning to die just yet, just planning my funeral).

    I feel that they are beautiful and would speak to people about Jesus and faith, and sow seeds for God’s Kingdom as we are called to do by Paul, be ever ready to give reason for our faith.

    Thank you again

    Dear Marilla,

    May God continue to bless each and every one of us who listen to your beautiful songs. I do not have much concentration with prayer, but when I pray, I pray through your many songs that I have collected over the years. Not that I have too many of your songs, but the few I have, help to connect with my God.

    I do not have a particularly good singing voice, but with your music I sing along, and sing loudly, because I feel the presence of my God nearer to me.

    I particularly enjoy the Rosary which I listen to when I drive to work each morning.

    I wish you well and God’s continued blessings.

    Dear Marilla,

    I remember when I first heard your tape (as it was then) I was in Medjugorje and the tape was ‘He Touched Me,’ I bought it immediately and played it until it was worn out! I have since bought many more of your recordings including some of your Spoken Word CD’s. I find them really helpful in my prayer life, I would just like to say ‘thank you’ Marilla and God Bless You.

    Dear Marilla,

    Well, I’d like to say how much I am addicted to all 25 of your CDs (not quite finished listening to them all as yet), and your two DVDs. I have finished purchasing now, and so far I have enjoyed each one. I began with your ‘Sorrowful Woman’ CD, which I loved so much I decided to go for the ‘Spoken Word’ CDs too, and now have every one of your recordings. I have listened to Part 1 of, ‘A Portrait of Jesus’, which was really inspiring, and it’s so good to listen to as I am not seeing too clearly to read my Bible due to cataracts, and I have double vision. This is where you have helped me so much with your talking and readings CDs, and songs too of course. I think you have been so gifted with a wonderful voice and I just love all the songs I’ve heard so far, and I have only another five CDs to listen to until I have listened to all 25 CDs.

    I have watched and listened to the two DVDs you have made, and I so enjoyed them both, I do favour ‘On Holy Ground’, as I would have loved to have been able to visit the Holy Land. Being now wh/chair-bound as a result of a serious accident, (1975), I became dependent upon an electric wh/chair as from 19 years ago, as my spine has eventually crumbled and I cannot walk, and also I have a terminal heart/lung disease for which I use oxygen 24/7 for the rest of my life. Still, it makes little difference to my life, as I still enjoy my life of attending my Parish Church and going to prayer mornings, Mondays – Wednesdays incl.

    I go into our local town, Orpington in Kent, by bus in my elec. wh/chair, and get out to visit mum every day too. I also go to Thursday ‘Club’ at our Church, (in our lounge), where we do have a good time ’singing’ for/to the Lord and rejoicing in it, and we love to sing. Mind you, I have to sing in my mind and try singing softly when possible, but the breathing isn’t too good whilst attempting this! I listen to my friends in Thursday ‘Club’ singing our favourite hymns and songs, and absolutely rejoice in the words, praising the Lord. We then, sometimes, have a ‘Speaker’, otherwise our ‘Reader’, who will take us into God’s Word and have a short time of meditation whilst listening to him expounding it to us.

    I have a wonderful time listening to all of the CDs made by you and as I said, I am still working my way through them, and have just five or six left still to listen to. I watch/listen to ‘On Holy Ground’ DVD, every morning (and evening) and I love it so much and use it as my way of starting the day off with Jesus, with your readings and songs, and I join in your songs to the Lord, and ‘how can I stop (myself) from singing’?!! I do sing along with you quietly without getting too breathless, and just love to listen to your glorious voice. What a wonderful gift God has given to you. Do you still do tours? I am sorry to ask but have forgotten what it says on your ‘News & Events’ page and cannot recall whether you still go on tours. I know you collected three awards all in one go, somewhere!! at sometime!! I am so sorry but I have memory lapses due to a cerebral disorder!! Still, I don’t forget about listening to all of your CDs. So here goes, another one to listen to for the evening, and to enjoy. Sorry to have gone on! My apologies.

    May the peace of the Lord be with you now and always

    Dear Marilla,

    I am coming up to Scotland from Castleford, near Leeds, in Yorkshire, to see you in Concert at Carfin. Yippee, I say – about time! I came to see you in Southport in 03 and have been waiting ever since but all good things come to those who wait. You signed my ‘Friends of Marilla’ membership card then and I sent you an Easter card and was pleasantly surprised to receive one back, with a nice letter. We have the tickets , the train booked and the Hotel for the night. I have never been up to Carfin Grotto, so I am so looking forward to it .

    My best wishes to you.

    Dear Marilla,

    Wow! what a great Concert up at St Francis Xavier Carfin, on Thursday. Was a truly amazing time and met so many fantastic people in Carfin that I have lots of stories to tell, what a great day.

    The Venue was packed out and no one wanted you to finish, you are a true star Marilla and I am still laughing at the ‘$50 is $50′ joke. I am now eagerly awaiting the next CD , DVD and most importantly, the next Concert.

    As Oliver Twist said, can I have MORE please?

I do have a Songbook, purchased about 10 years ago. Do you have another one with all your songs in it now, if so, where could I purchase one?

    Thank you, and God Bless your Ministry.

    Dear Marilla,

    I have almost finished listening to and at the same time, enjoying, all 25 CDs you have recorded and have watched your two DVDs so many times, I just love everything you’ve spoken and sung.

    You have a very lovely faith and an obvious deep love for Christ, as I believe I have also. Wouldn’t it be great if everyone could come to the Lord and find Him as their Saviour, as so many people have and are all Born Again?!

    But unfortunately there are many other Faiths and a lot of people haven’t got Jesus in their heart, which is a shame, as one would love to see them ‘turn’ and ask Him into their lives.

    I would think that any person who’s not Christian or may have been a nominal Christian, who heard some of your readings from the Bible, and your songs, would be turning to Christ, because you have that certain way of speaking and singing, to ‘turn’ many a heart.

    I do love the DVD ‘On Holy Ground’, and often do my ‘Quiet Time’ by watching and listening to it each day. It really is a very uplifting DVD and it still helps me so much, with my daily walk with the Lord.

    May the Peace of the Lord be with you now and always,

    Chrissie.

    Dear Marilla,

    I must tell you that I am truly inspired with your CD of The Divine Mercy Meditations and Songs. This is the way I start my days . Since just finishing the Diary of St. Faustina this brings so much meaning to this book. I know that the Chaplet of Divine Mercy is a much needed requirement in this day and age and you have sung it so beautifully.

    The Good Lord has blessed you with a wonderful voice to sing of His Glory and Praises and to share with the many who love to listen to music. Your music ministry is a very Spiritual and Uplifting one and can bring one to tears.

    Thank you for sharing your music with us and God bless.

    Dear Marilla,

    I absolutely loved Saturday evening at the Chapel of Reconciliation, your voice is pitch perfect and very warm and clear. You signed a couple of cds for me afterward and spoke kindly, I could tell you are a very spiritually centred lady. I was very touched by your singing and by the Marian miracles you recounted in between your songs.
    What I especially wanted to tell you was the effect the concert had on me personally. I am not Catholic although I attend masses whenever I am able, and read Catholic material but I have found difficulty accepting Mary, as regards praying to her, or asking her to pray for me – although I feel drawn toward her. However I felt such a beautiful spirit and warmth on Saturday and I realised that this was no longer the case – no theological studies had been able to influence me toward Mary- but the power I felt in the chapel changed my heart toward Mary on Saturday, now I feel so different and close to her. Thank you so much, it was such a life changing experience. I hope you continue to perform for a long time to come. God bless you.

    Dear Marilla, I’m just writing to say how much I appreciate your beautiful and very anointed music. I just bought 4 of your CDs recently and I play them frequently. I wanted you to know a unique way God used your music back in 2006. I’ve been tormented by terrible thoughts since I was a teenager (I’m now 37). I would probably be classed as bi-polar though there are definitely spiritual problems there as well. Anyway, one Sunday morning I was suddenly tormented, which was very upsetting, and asked my mother to pray. I was surprised when she began singing in tongues, something she has only done a handful of times in her life. She sang a beautiful, simple melody, then went back and sang it in English. The main part I remember was the end where she said, “I am the Father. My love for you is perfect. Be not afraid.” A few hours later I was watching EWTN when they started playing your videos. I really felt the Holy Spirit as soon as I heard you, but imagine my surprise when they played your wonderful song “Do Not Be Afraid,” especially when the last course said, “You are mine, O my child, I am your Father, and I love you with a perfect love. Do not be afraid…” What a wonderful (and very specific) confirmation! Neither my mother nor I knew of you or that song at the time (plus, her song had a different melody). But the final words were almost the same, and I thought that was incredible. I knew then I wanted to get your CDs and I finally have! God bless you this Mother’s Day and please pray for my mother, a very dear woman of God who is battling cancer now. Pray that her heart will open to receive all that the Lord has for her. Thank you! Sincerely, Tim Pruitt
