LETTER TO OUR SON
Last Friday in this space I wrote about the ordination of our two new priests and I told the story of Father Dayan Machado’s journey from communism to Catholicism and finally to priesthood last Saturday. I mentioned that his parents were admitted to full communion in 2002 at St. Joseph’s Church in West Tampa by Father Felix Sanchez. The parents wrote a letter to their son which appeared in the parish bulletin this Sunday in time for the first Mass. It is edifying, touching and telling and I strongly encourage you to read it by clicking on the language which best suits your needs (English or Spanish). It was written by them to Father Dayan in Spanish, of course, and translated into English by their pastor, Father Sanchez. Please read it.
