Con la Gracia de Dios, esperamos los feligreses que todos estos cambios resulten para bien, por supuesto para mayor gloria de Dios y para el bienestar de nuestros sacerdotes. Sin embargo creo que, es necesario revisar la actitud de algunos pastores y adminstradores parroquiales, que tratana sus vicarios como esclavos. Quisiera que alguien me explicara porque los pastores o administradores, viajan tanto, se ausentan tanto de la parroquia, no hacen guardia, no confiesan, mientras los vicarios lo tienen que hacer casi todo? Espero este comentario sea publicado, y que sea leido por el arzobispo y tambien por los sacerdotes. Gracia y que Dios nos Bendiga a todos

Yo se que muchos de estos cambios no solo afectan a los feligreses sino tambien a los Sacerdotes.Pero el Espiritud Santo es el que Mueve.Por ejemplo se de;el Padre Tupiza y del Padre Natan,los queremos,son pastores y se que Dios en su Amor bendice a ellos y a los feligreses,cuando amamos los unos a los otros Dios nos guia y debemos aceptar el mandato de los superiors pues ellos saben lo que hacen y es para eel bien de todos.Uds sacerdotes donde los pongan hagan su labor pastoral y guien al rebaño por las sendas del SEñOR. Amen.

I will miss Father Armando Tolosa from Mother Of Christ. He is a humble and saintly priest. It's sad that he was here for just one year but he made a big difference in all the parishioners' lives. I wish him the best in his new assignment. God bless him.
