The Missions Office at the Diocese of Orange has invited Rev. M. S. Selva Raj from the Diocese of Kumbakonam, India to share with us the needs of the people in their community. Sixty percent of their Catholics are depressingly poor. Our fervent prayers and generous help are earnestly requested for building the Kingdom of God, in and through the Diocese of Kumbakonam, India. Please help make Fr. Selva feel welcome.
Last Sunday, my priest-friend, Fr.Miguel called me seven times; missed calls that made me feel anxious because of the urgency that it might be an emergency. After the three Masses while waiting for lunch to be served, I was able to reach Fr. Miguel and was the recipient of good news, a wonderful and touching gesture of a kind and generous person. Fr. Miguel told me how he shared our Parish Family’s experience of having part of our Sunday Offertory stolen in August . . . the full context of which I was not told, nor did I ask.
