"My name is Maria José, I have 11 years, I want to share with you the experience of this beautiful day. A month since my grandmother died Maria Elena Sierra ago, it was her desire to spend 1st Communion with me. My grandfather Gerardo Jaramillo Gonzales,a married priest Catholic, baptized me. By falling in love with my grandmother, he was sidelined from his ministry in the Church; this suffering and pain, we have always felt in the family.
On this day, my 1a. Communion with me my family, my grandfather, my parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, my sister Maria Antonia, and two friends from my grandmother and family.
In my family we asked Olga Lucia, it is she who accompany us especially in this day:
Olga Lucia leaves us short thoughts to ponder: "Who are we ?, and what our mission, our responsibility in the world, in the family, in society, in the Church".
"My grandfather intervenes to explain to everyone the importance of the commitment we make to receive the Eucharist:" ... when we say this in my body, this is my blood, we are each of us giving ourselves to the service of the Church, serving the United God ... making it real presence of Christ in the bread and wine "
My grandfather a,married priest and my mom give me Holy Communion. Olga Lucia explains why they give me Communion, "for Father Gerardo as grandfather and priest, and Maria Elena, as a mom, it is they who in the home, have cultivated the seeds of faith and Christian values, Maria José ".
Then they went to Communion the other attendees. Olga Lucia, the last in communion and ended up thanking God for his presence in our midst and also invoke the presence of the Virgin Mary, patroness of the Americas, the Virgin of Guadalupe.
Filled with the presence of the Spirit-Ruah, we were invited to go out with joy into the world to proclaim the Gospel! "
We consider a blessing from Heaven Gerardo P. intervention, despite his health and memory loss. It was like listening in its heyday.
