Padre David uses a rose and holy water to perform blessings after Mass.

Today’s prayer comes from Padre David Cordozo, parish priest of Our Lady of La Salette in Bolivia.

“Esta navidad, estoy agradecido por todas las personas que conocí y por las que estan siempre a mi lado. Para el año nuevo, espero que que todos nos sintamos amados y amadas por Dios y por casa hermano y hermana.”

“This Christmas, I am grateful for all of the people I know, and for those who are always at my side. For the new year, I hope that all of us will feel beloved by God and beloved by our brothers and sisters”

Our Lady of La Salette is the parish in the barrio where our missioners live.
