Thank You to a Special Priest

This is a special thank you to a diocesan Priest, 
who was our Pastor until he retired a couple of years ago.
We thank you with all our hearts
for teaching us so much about gardening
sharing your garden with us
visiting us every year to see our new goat kids
and encouraging us in our gardening ventures
for celebrating Catherine and María's Quinceañera Masses
bringing peaceful blessings to our home
always sharing your bright smile
and inspiring us by being
an avid hiker, mountain climber. bicyclist, gardener
and teaching us special lessons about Mary and Elizabeth's visit
and the sower and the seed
and for coming out of retirement to take care of parishes in need.
You are an awesome, prayerful priest
and a wonderful human being who is truly in persona Cristi!
¡Muchísimas Gracias!

    1. He has been very understanding and supportive of the families in the rural communities here. When he talks about gardening and farming in his sermons, the correlations with the Gospel are truly awesome.
