From the Pastor My Dear Parishioners, January 22nd is the anniversary of the Supreme Court decision on abortion (Roe vs. Wade, 1973 According to the Ordo, “all dioceses of the United States shall observe a Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children.” It is also a time when we can offer penance in prayer for all the sins against the dignity of the human person that have been committed through the heinous acts of abortion. All human life, from the moment of conception to natural death, is a gift from God. We honor God as well as thank Him by the good way in which we make use this great gift of life on earth. Remember that God made us for Him, to know Him, to love Him, and to serve Him. We can discover God in our lives and in the lives of our brothers and sisters. With God’s help, we can look for God in all situations and in each other. Therefore, in love, we are called to follow His will for us, to seek His Wisdom, and to strive to have great respect for all of His creation. Let us all respect the great gift of life with which God has entrusted us. God Bless You, Fr. Guadagnoli

De El Pastor Mis queridos feligreses, El 22 de enero es el aniversario de la decisión de la Corte Suprema sobre el aborto (Roe vs. Wade, 1973). Según el Ordo, “todas las diócesis de los Estados Unidos cumplirán un día de oración por la protección legal de los niños por nacer”. También es un momento en que podemos ofrecer penitencia en oración por todos los pecados contra la dignidad de la persona humana que han sido cometidos a través de los atroces actos de aborto. Toda la vida humana, desde el momento de la concepción hasta la muerte natural, es un regalo de Dios. Honramos a Dios y le agradecemos por la buena manera en que usamos este gran regalo de la vida en la tierra. Recuerda que Dios nos hizo para Él, conocerle, amarle y servirle. Podemos descubrir a Dios en nuestras vidas y en las vidas de nuestros hermanos y hermanas. Con la ayuda de Dios, podemos buscar a Dios en todas las situaciones y en los demás. Por lo tanto, en amor, estamos llamados a seguir su voluntad, buscar Su sabiduría y esforzarnos por tener gran respeto por toda Su creación. Respetemos el gran regalo de la vida, la cual Dios nos ha confiado. Que Dios le bendiga, Padre Guadagnoli
