Feast of Saint Ignatius

Blessings on the Feast of Saint Ignatius
Dear Friends,
On July 31, Jesuits around the world celebrate the feast of our founder, Saint Ignatius of Loyola. In the opening prayer of the Mass on that day, we pray:Lord, in your providence, you guided Saint Ignatius to found the Society of Jesus. Enrich it, we pray, with the gifts of heart, mind and spirit. Make us all one with you in holiness and love, that we may discern your will and carry it out with constancy and faith.You can be sure that you are remembered throughout the day and particularly at our daily liturgy. As always, we are very grateful for your goodness to us. Christ’s blessings to you on the feast of Saint Ignatius.
 Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam,
Fr. Myles N. Sheehan, SJ
Provincial, New England Province of Jesuits

Luke 15:4-7

“What man among you having a hundred sheep and losing one of them would not leave the ninety-nine in the desert and go after the lost one until he finds it? And when he does find it, he sets it on his shoulders with great joy and, upon his arrival home, he calls together his friends and neighbors and says to them, ‘Rejoice with me because I have found my lost sheep.’ I tell you, in just the same way there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous people who have no need of repentance.”
Luke 15:4-7
“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if anyone hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me.” Rev 3:20

Guatemalan Mission Trip

This last week I had the opportunity to accompany my friend Pastor Byron Dardon on a Mission Trip to Guatemala. We left at about 6:30am July 12, 2011 from West Palm Beach en route to the airport of Miami for a 10:45 flight to Guatemala City. A two hour flight where I also saw my first illegal alien being escorted to the plane by two sheriffs. Below is Father Michael who with our Carmelite sisters Madre Julia and Hermana Margarita are doing a great Job at the valley of the Angels.

We arrived in Guatemala City and spent the rest of the day getting organized for our trip which was to last until July 18, 2011. Our itinerary included: San Jose La Arada, Chiquimula, San Pedro De La Huertas, San Jose Manzana in Santa Catarina Pinula, Aldea Los Ocotes, Guazacapan, Santa Rosa and Guatemala City.
