      The Mama Gili Guild was established several years ago to gather,
      collect, and publish information on Dolores Immacolata Gili
      (1892-1985) for an investigation into her cause as a Servant of God,
      as well as to promote her cause and to perpetuate her cult by
      directing prayer groups assembled in her honor. It has continuously
      enjoyed the ecclesiastical approval of Theodore Cardinal McCarrick,
      and the Most Reverend John Joseph Myers, Archbishop of Newark, New
      Jersey.
