Kolbe Report 11/12/22

Dear Friends of the Kolbe Center,

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Among people of European descent, the easiest way to trace one’s ancestry back to St. Adam is to identify an ancestor among one of the royal families of Europe.  This is because the members of the royal families of many (if not most or all) of the tribes of Europe wanted to be able to trace their ancestry, and were able to show their descent to Japheth, the son of Noah, and, through him, all the way back to St. Adam and St. Eve, just as the Miao people are able to do to this very day.  The following genealogy traces the ancestry of my wife through certain high kings of Ireland all the way back to Japheth and, through him, to Adam:

Believe it or not, my beloved readers, you too stand at the end of a living line of descent that connects you to our first parents St. Adam and St. Eve, and through them, to your Heavenly Creator.

The oldest of our nineteen grandchildren, Owen Dominic McClain, who researched and provided us with my wife’s genealogy, has become quite an expert in doing genealogical research.  If any of you are interested in hiring him to help you to research your own ancestral lineage, you can contact him through his website www.myprogenitors.com.

Yours in Christ through the Immaculata in union with St. Joseph,

Hugh Owen
