“Amen, amen I say to thee, unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Ghost, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.”

Dear John, What a glorious day was yesterday! It was the day of your rebirth in Christ, your baptism. You were baptized in the Parish Church of Our Lady of Graces and were consecrated to her. May you forever be under her protection and under the wing of our most blessed God. I was notContinue reading ““Amen, amen I say to thee, unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Ghost, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.””

“Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and shalt find the knowledge of God”

Dear John, Today the three of us watched a televised Mass celebrated by the good priests of the Fraternity of Saint Peter. The Mass was celebrated in St. Vitus’ Church, at San Fernando, California. It was a beautiful Mass, mostly done in Latin, but with the Homily in Spanish and English. It felt nice toContinue reading ““Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and shalt find the knowledge of God””

“The Lord bless thee, and keep thee. The Lord shew his face to thee, and have mercy on thee. The Lord turn his countenance to thee, and give thee peace.”

To Mr. P.

Dear Mr. P., I decided to start this little venture by dedicating this first letter to you. I thought it fitting, after all you were the one who encouraged me to actually give this a shot. This blog was conceived as an alternative to an assignment in your class, an alternative I doubted you wouldContinue reading “To Mr. P.”
