(July, 2006) MHFM: Following Bro. Michael Dimonds interview on Coast to Coast Am on July 10, 2006, we were inundated with telephone calls on our 800-line. We have 4 lines available for our 800-number, and at least 3 out of 4 (and very often 4 out of 4) lines were lit up and ringing almost continuously for about 24 hours. (This didnt afford us the opportunity to sleep for over 24 hours, but it was truly a blessing because many souls have heard the truth of the Catholic Faith and have acted upon embracing it.) We had lists of numbers of people we had to call back, and it took us some days to get back to them all. We have received a great number of orders from those who heard the show. We have spoken to so many non-Catholics and Protestants who, having heard the message of the traditional Catholic Faith (the one Church of Jesus Christ) a message which is so simple and, since it is true, so powerful have ordered our special and are now investigating the Catholic Faith or are on the brink of conversion. We have sent out numerous summaries of the Catholic Catechism. We have spoken to so many fallen away Catholics who have now decided to come back to the practice of the traditional Faith and a daily prayer life. We have spoken to so many people who attend the New Mass and knew that something was wrong, but couldnt put their fingers on it, who are now committed to the traditional Catholic Faith. It truly has been a flood of good fruits, for which we thank God. We pray that all will receive His grace to remain faithful to (and/or embrace) the one Faith that Jesus Christ revealed (the traditional, unchangeable Catholic Faith).
We also received a large number of e-mails in a 48-hour period. Here are just some of the positive responses that came in via e-mail:
Dear Brother Diamond,
First, thank you for speaking to the world about the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church...my family is relistening to a tope we made of Coast A.M. of your interview. I hope you are invited back!!!!...
Dear Brother Dimond,
Please put my on your e mail newsletter. I have listened to a tape of the radio program you were on, that a friend gave me and everything you said sounds logical!... All of those people who called into the radio program were so evil. They were so mad at you because you spoke the truth and they don't want to hear it. You could hear the evil in their voices!
May God bless you and help you spread the truth about our Catholic Faith-the TRUE Faith!
Dear Br. Dimond:
THANK YOU SO MUCH for coming on C2C and taking all that Garbage from Noory and Company, not to mention some of the callers. They have a Delete button, but they ...in their Jr. High level mentality...chose not to use it. I was disgusted with Noory's assaine antics and told him so!! The Next night he even Crowed about how those J.C. calls were the highlight of the night....how J.C. seemed to be on "THEIR side." Odd, how Noory's hometown, St. Louis, just Happened to have a 90 mph wind, out of no where, blow in and take about 47 Thousand of them off the grid...shortly after the program.
Thanks again for coming on. Hopefully, you will be interviewed by Art Bell, himself, next time.
Prayers to you all,
My name is J.F. and I have just listened to you speak on Coast to Coast AM. Your words were shocking and yet, resonated in some way which I can not explain. Perhaps it is because I consider myself to be a Christian, yet what you had to said brought me into a state of questioning as to my own understanding of what being a Christian means.
I am requesting from you more information regarding the 'true' Catholic church. I will of course take the time to read the articles on your website...however, it does not seem a particularly 'systematic' exposition. Please understand, I was raised in the baptist church and matters regarding such things as the Papacy, etc. are new to me.
I thank you for any help you may provide.
If you could recommend any references for me as a beginner wanting to learn about Traditional Catholicism and the history of Catholic Church (particularily it's origins), I would be quite greatful. I truly appreciate your time. Brother Dimond's radio appearance last night was truly a blessing for me. I formerly never considered exploring the Roman Catholic Church because I couldn't reconcile strong Christian beliefs with the liberalism seen in so many facets of the modern church. The idea of Traditional Catholicism has opened up a whole new world to me, one that seems to get closer to the roots of Christianity than any other option Ive come across.
Our dog woke me this morning at around 3:00 a.m. and in going downstairs to let her out, I found our radio still on in our study and heard someone from your organization on a talk show aired on WLS, AM 890.This was very unusual, and Im sure there was some involvement from the Holy Spirit to lead me to hear the program. I tried to call in, but a number was never given, and there was no answer to my several calls to the station. I only came in on the last 45 minutes of the show, but it appears that someone from your organization was making and defending the statement that EVERYONE on earth who was not a CATHOLIC (is this limited to Roman Catholic?) would go to Hell when they died. I was compelled to contact you.
I have some questions
Brother Diamond, I heard your radio show. It was great! It made me feel alive with truth. You were outstanding. I thank the Lord you were able to get the message of truth to some many so quick. Bless you. Keep up the good work.
I heard Brother Michael on Coast to Coast AM last week and was amazed. I didn't know an Order like you existed anywhere
My question is how can I be confirmed and become one with the true Catholic Church? May God continue to Bless your labors, J. K., Hanford, CA
This is a copy of a letter I sent G Noory about last nights show. I appreciate what you did and how you kept your head. I am a traditional Catholic and really enjoyed what you had to say. I have some of your tapes and DVD's and really am happy to know we have some people who can speak for us. Unbelievable that you tolerated that moron JC. I don't waste any time on people like that anymore, but you did great. God Bless you Michael,
Dearest Michael Dimond,
I am a Traditional Catholic and a former Baptist minister and I am extremely impressed with how much you know. It is because of you and your publications that I am able to say that today I am Traditional. I tuned in to the Coast to Coast program with George Noory last night and I am disgusted with the amount of apostasy in this country. However, never have I seen anyone get out that much information that quickly to so many as you did. I've read your book, seen your DVD's, and have been reading your web site for a couple of months now and I fully agree and am glad to see that someone out there has the guts to tell the truth in its entirety especially concerning the dogma of "no salvation outside the Catholic Church" which unfortunately so many refuse to uphold. May God bless you. You and your brothers are my personal heroes.

Dear Brother Diamond,
I just wanted to tell you that you did a great job last night on Coast to Coast! I actually stayed up late to listen to it. I couldn't believe how much you were able to cover in an hour. You kept your cool throughout the entire interview, especially with that crazy caller at the end. It's amazing that almost every single caller was upset about the 'no salvation' issue. Why is it SO hard for people to understand this? It seems pretty cut and dry to me. I think that whoever listened to you last night was touched in one way or another by your words, how could they not? It was obvious that you were filled with the Holy Ghost. Please know that you are in our prayers.Thanks again for doing such a great job and getting the message out there to
the whole world!
We wish to congratulate you on the FANTASTIC job you did on the Coast to Coast Radio Program with George Noory. Words cannot express our pride and excitement as you handled yourself with confidence and the certainty that comes from knowing, believing and sharing the true Faith of Jesus Christ. We did our best to capture this encounter on audio cassette but our tape malfunctioned and we missed taping a couple of callers and your responses. Even so, playing what we did get on cassette for our children the next day made a deep impression on them (teens and pre-teens) who said simply, that you were "amazing". Our children often become weary in this world so full of sin, at times even more so than we adults. Your appearance on this popular program (which we never listen to otherwise) was like a breath of fresh air for them. We know that you will be invited back to the program, we just hope it will be soon!
Anyway, your continued, constancy in the face of this and other horrible barrages as you stand in defense of the truth while giving hope, sharing knowledge and giving encouragement... what can I say but that we continue to pray to the Lord for you, that He uphold you, grant you many blessings now and in the life to come and that many more people hear your message, the message of the Church and heed it.
We thank God for blessing us with your interview on Coast last night! The TRUTH was spoken over the airways to millions - unbelievable in this age when the media is controlled. Our Triune God indeed is in control. You did very well, covering so many important points. You remained calm and answered wonderfully the callers. You were in our prayers.
Very good talk, I enjoyed it immensely and admire your courage and fortitude. Too bad that some of the callers weren't screened properly (but I think this was done on purpose, God only knows for sure). I hope you're on again.
Good going last night Brother Dimond
way to fight! God bless you and family
Bro. Michael Dimond,
Hi, just finished listening to your appearance on the Coast to Coast radio show a couple of minutes ago, and I just wanted to drop a note commending you for a great job. I'm not a sedevacantist, but I was very impressed with how you handled yourself on the program... especially with that irrational person at the very end. I'm sure many, many people will find out about the traditional Catholic faith because of this program. Thank you.
EXCELLENT RADIO PROGRAM!!!!!!!!!
I got a audio tape of Bro. Michaels interview with George Noory--- I thought it was outstanding the way Brother kept the interest of all the listeners along with directing the message at non-Catholics as well - It was also clear that he won the debates with the people that called in- I could listen to that tape over & over again..God bless

Dear Brother Dimond,
Thank you for appearing on the Coast to Coast Radio program, it was very informative.
Listened to Coast to Coast the other night when Bro. Diamond was on. I have returned to the Traditional Catholic faith from the Novus Ordo; so it was wonderful to hear a real Catholic speaking the truth over the air waves. I know people HATE to hear the fact that there really is only one Church founded by Jesus himself and membership in the Church is necessary for salvation. I guess it boils down to the fact that God's ways are not our ways. And I agree, being a Traditional Catholic is probably the most difficult and yet spititual rewarding religion there is.
God bless you,
Dear Br. Michael
I wanted to congratulate you for your explicit and uncompromising profession of Faith the other night on the radio.
I heard Brother Michael Dimond on the Coast-to-Coast radio show the other night. What he said confirmed my gut feelings .
God led me to put on the radio last night at o'clock and to my surprise you were on the air.
I was so impressed by your coolness in the face of some vicious characters that they put against you.
I just listened to your show on Coast to Coast, and I couldn't agree with you more! As a cradle Catholic, I've noticed some things about the Mass, and have begun to do some research into the Vatican that disturb me greatly. For the past few years, I've had this feeling that my religion both, has been, and is currently, being compromised by human direction instead of God's. And you summed up this "feeling" perfectly on the show tonight!!! And for that, I commend you
Sincerely in Christ,
I think that you did an excellent job on Coast to Coast am Monday night
Andrew J. Filberg Sr.
Greeting Brother Diamond, I listened to you early this morning on coast to coast. You handled yourself with great aplomb, integrity and conviction. The truths you outlined were the exact ones I grew up with and which I also beleive most fervently. As a loyal son of Holy Mother Church, I too am lost for words to understand the fantastic and incredible changes that have taken place in my lifetime to our holy church. I am a firm beleiver that Christ will never abandon His church and He will be with us till the end of time. I miss our Latin, Roman roots, all that that means, our services, our truths and in many cases our beliefs. I also beleive that Christ is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow and I will never, never forsake Holy Mother Church. I will continue to pray and believe and I hope the same for you. Thomas
Good Afternoon Brother Michael,
I need to thank you so much for your radio appearance last night on Coast to Coast. I pray that many that heard you woke up. It is so refreshing when you can finally listen to the radio and hear
Thank you and May God Bless You, Brother Peter and all at your monastery.
Congratulations on a job well done. Tried to get through to support you but the lines were busy. My friend June listened as well.
Dear Bro. Dimond,
Loved your answers on Coast to Coast last night. If only every true Catholic would answer the way you did. At last millions of souls will now know where the true Church is and how to save their souls. And thank you for pointing to the real Catholic Church and exposing the fake church. I was very proud of you.
God love you,
Thank you for being on the show!
George! Great radio buddy!

Dear Brother Dimond - I stayed up until 2 am listening to your appearance on Coast to Coast and I thank God that you were able to get on this huge program and tell people the truth, though how you were treated certainly demonstrated that we living under the reign of Antichrist and that people think they are following the will of God by attacking the truth, which was amply demonstrated by how these ignorant protestants were reacting to what you were saying
Mrs. Moira Gralund
Dear Sir or Madame,
I heard Br. Dimond on the Coast to Coast radio show and was truly fascinated with the topic. I didn't catch the whole show though and I was wondering if The Most Holy Family Monastery recognizes Pope Pius XII as the legitimate pope. I too have felt an emptiness at Mass in the Novus Ordo church and have not been in quite some time (preferring to have a direct rapport with God and Jesus Christ through private prayer and Rosary meditation)
Very best regards,
Dear Brother Dimond,
It was so interesting to hear you on Coastam last night. I was drifting in and out of sleep last night so I didn't hear 100%, but the last caller seemed possessed! Actually, he may have gotten a taste of his own, sounded like a Baptist or something. I've been reading your website today...Wow!...
Thank You Brother Dimond,
I listened with great interest to your presentation on coast to coast. Thank God there are Catholics that can articulate our faith to others as well as you did. It re-affirmed and renewed my faith as a Catholic.
I wanted to say I enjoyed your presentation on Coast to Coast. I wish you had been able to discuss more of what you believe and why you believe it as opposed to having to defend yourself. I am not happy with the tone of some of interview. Not because of anything that you said but because the host allowed it to become a circus atmosphere. Will you be on any other shows. I would love to hear you get a fair interviewer. I have also been viewing your online DVDs and will be listening to some audio and reading some articles tomorrow. I'm looking forward to that. Well take care and God bless.
Dear Brother Michael,
I wish I had gotten to talk to you on Coast to Coast. You were very good! I wish some one with your attitude, or at least somebody more agreeable had called. You are right, and I concur. I try at least. Don't listen to those like JC. What a whacko, and most obviously uneducated and unenlightened.
Anyway, I have been going through a crisis of faith lately. I haven't been to Mass since Easter! It is just incredibly disheartening--the weak homilies and penances given. How can a priest make fun of the 'Our Father' or tell you in confession that you're being too hard on yourself!!---There is a St. John the Divine Catholic Church near us. They are pre-Vatican II. Would it be wrong to go?
Thank You!! If I was not already a sede, I would be after that program!!!
I totally agree with everything you had to say last night too bad very few were listening. Obviously Noory and his ilk believe you are far right fanatic. How you were able to tolerate the 1 ˝ hours of call ins was amazing. I found it interesting that Noory suggested that his engineer was at risk of going to Hell without considering himself( as he thought he was a true Catholic?-apparently he was not listening). I do not normally listen to George Noory as his program is routinely anti-Catholic but I am certainly glad I listened last night
Dear Most Holy Family Monastery;
I listened to Bro. Michael Dimond last nite on George Noory's Coast to Coast radio program and wanted to thank him for presenting that valuable information .
To the Holy Brothers,
I thought that I was Catholic until I heard Bro. Dimond on the radio the other night. I, like many others I'm sure, was linked to your web-site by Coast to Coast AM. Let me just say that Bro. Dimond and your web-site have shown me that I am far from being what I should. What are the top books and sources that you recommend for someone to truly learn what it is to be Catholic?... I really need to examine my conscience after hearing the show and reviewing your web-site. Please advise me of anything that you can help me with.
Yours in Christ,
Dear Bro. Mike,
I heard you on George Noory earlier this week and am writing to see if you would e-mail me a copy of the form to order your DVDs and books. The information you presented on talk radio was fascinating and has me second-guessing my lack of a Catholic spiritual life
Your interview was very interesting. Thank you for taking the time to talk to the Coast listeners. You make the world a better place to live in with the work you are continuing to do. A fellow traveler on this world,
Hello Brother Michael,
After listening to you on the Coast to Coast radio show evening before last [or, rather, early yesterday morning?!!] I realized what you were saying was the truth--so, most of yesterday morning/afternoon/evening, up until a few minutes ago [it's around 5 am. Wednesday morning, here in New Jersey] I have read and read and read as much as I've been able to, of what you have posted on your website, and I would just like to say to you--THANK YOU!!!...
Very Sincerely Yours,
Dear Brother Michael,
I enjoyed your interview Monday evening with George Noorey.
To whom it may concern,
I listened to Coast to Coast AM last evening and heard Brother Michael Diamond and found it all very compelling
You did a great job, I am just listening to it now. I wish I could have called in but didn't know you would be on
Hello - I listened to coast to coast last night and found it very interesting and I also went to your web site and read some of the articles, which were also very interesting.
Brother Michael - I thank you anyway, for a very thought-provoking several hours!!!
Hello Brother Dimond:
My husband and I heard you on Coast to Coast a couple of days ago and loved everything that you said. We spent the entire day and evening yesterday watching the dvds on your website and reading the information there. Everything you've said makes perfect sense to us and we both feel that you have come to us at a time in our lives when we were at a crossroads spiritually
I listened to the radio, here in the phoenix area KFYI I think that is 911AM. I heard Brother Michael DImond. Very Good!! So, this broadcast was at about 11pm? Called, Coast-to-Coast only Art Bell was not the HOst for Monday eve, July 10. Art said he is going to be a Catholic, I hope he means a real Catholic. People don't like that Dogma "Truth" that there is only One True Faith. It just boils their blood!! Well, it must be said, a real Must, and Thank God you did such a marvelous Job
I thought brother Diamond did a great job on Coast to Coast the other day. The reaction from the audience was shocking to say the least in the way they attacked Brother Diamond. It was kin to atheists attacking religion in general out of fear of being wrong. I hope to hear him on again and I hope George does not break his own rules again as he did with JC allowing him to call in a second time in a single show and yell and insult the guest over and over.
Your presentation was organized, eloquent and fluid- Bravo!
I really enjoyed bro. Michael Diamond's appearance on the radio. I was quite impressed how Bro. Diamond was able to defend the truth so well with such charity, even in the face of such rediculous callers as that wacko at the end. Anyways, I thank you for taking the time to read my questions.
Hi, my name is mark and I've listened to the program coast2coast for years waiting for what i heard July 10. I need to speak to someone i am not Catholic and was not raised in a religious family but he's always been there and i need to save me and my family
Brother Dimond: Thank you for being on the program Coast to Coast am. You are steadfast in your defense of the true catholic church.
I just listened to the Coast to Coast broadcast. You couldn't have been more eloquent and disciplined in your responses. You were absolutely dead on, and many people listening were shocked by such honesty. Outstanding
I have to say that the way that you were able to simply and clearly, yet powerfully defend Christ and the Deposit of Faith, whole and inviolate, was so well done, that it should definitely be noted with an underscore that you are living up to your name, Michael. You are a man, charged with this knowledge and have the duty to perform the ultimate charity in this life, which is to tell the truth of the Church, even unto death, and the way that you were able to articulate without a moments' hesitation from caller after caller has given me the impression that God was right there blessing you with the ability to be as wise as a serpent and gentle as a dove
Let me say, by the way, that I was completely blown away by the videos that you sell. I ordered every book, tape, VHS and DVD that you offer and was absolutely astounded by the material. I owe you a great deal for the clarity that I have received on matters of the faith, in an age that is so unbelievably full of deceit.
Dear Br. Dimond:
THANK YOU SO MUCH for coming on C2C and taking all that Garbage from Noory and Company, not to mention some of the callers. They have a Delete button, but they ...in their Jr. High level mentality...chose not to use it. I was disgusted with Noory's assaine antics and told himso!!

Dear Brothers Dimond,
Thank you for holding up the banner of the Churches teaching on eens on Coast to Coast.
