Me Dearest People!
Prayerful greetings to you!
Thank you once again for your love and warm welcome… I felt extremely delighted about it.
I was reminded of the guidance of my mother, just a week before my ordination in 2004.
She said quoting St. Don Bosco “a priest from a family is a blessing to your home and to the village” My mommy said – “ Thank you, for bringing that blessing to our family” she continued “remember whatever parish, you are assigned into, you are married to thatparish and that parish should be your home and your house”.
What a spiritual wisdom?
That is the attitude I take, wherever I am placed into I am here at St. Gabriel ( our church and my church) with the same attitude and sentiments.
I am already starting to enjoy that family touch, and your love, right away from Sunday on..I had my goody bag and one family took me for lunch; these things happened right after Sunday Mass. One gentlemen pulled me over right before the Sunday Mass and told me with all politeness “ Father, in this commmunity we have lots of older folks hence, can you please talk a little more slower, during the Mass, so people can understand you better”
Yes, these are the things that I long for… I want that personal touch… I long for it… Thank you.
Please remember, I AM HERE FOR YOU… JUST FOR YOU ALL.
I will never do anything that is detrimental to your faith. May God Guide me and Our Blessed Mother protect me. Please pray for me, that I may be always faithful to the Lord and to His Holy Mother Church. Thank you.
Finally, please allow me to settle down for sometime, later, I want to know you all, as individuals and as well as groups. I will take the time to do so… Please, let me know or our wonderful secretary know about it and we will plan on them.
May the Eucharistic Lord continue to hold us together and may He unify us so that we can all grow together as a faithful family. May our blessed Mother continue to guide us.
God bless you all.
