I share with you a beautiful pastoral experience in my ministry as a presbyter. An experience in Casa-Iglesia.
Last night, I was invited to be a witness, of the blessing of love, of a couple. We met at the home of grandmother Tulia and grandfather Bernardo, they gathered their family; their children, grandchildren, cousins, brothers-in-law, sons-in-law and nephews.
The liturgy, songs, readings and the altar, all arranged by the children of the couple who wanted to celebrate their love, as a family. The idea came out of the children and this reminded me of the story of a girl (Maria Carolina) who, looking at the family album, starts crying, they ask her what happened? She responds by looking at the photos of her father and mother's marriage: "Why, they did not invite me?" ...
They are the children, those who hold love in the family. Not one, not two, but you must always be renewing the blessing of love, between couples. Juan Esteban and Alvaro, (children) have been the promoters of this beautiful occurrence.
I thank the Divinity, the Meneses Ramirez family, Mrs. Tulia, Don Bernardo, all the attendees and especially Juan Esteban for having invited me to share with family this note of blessing of love, which is so much needed in the families
