Last Wednesday, June 27th, the Servant Brothers of the Home of the Mother in Valencia, along with a friend, Juan Herrera, went on a trip with the altar servers of St. Dionysius and St. Pancratius Parish in order to celebrate the end of the school year.
Br. Greggy Espejon, Br. Andrew Krische, and Fr. Félix López were en route from Barcelona Airport to Croatia this past May 29th, with a group organized by Alberto, a seminarian from Madrid. We traveled with four deacons and two priests from the Bidasoa Seminary in Pamplona (Spain). Our group was a living image of the Catholicism of the Church, with representatives from various countries: Indonesia, Mexico, Peru, Ecuador, El Salvador, Philippines, USA, and Spain. Eight different countries were represented within a group of 10 people.
The streets throughout the Valencia neighborhood Torrefiel (Spain) were festively adorned in order to welcome on the weekend of June 1st the pilgrim state of Our Lady of the Forsaken to Sts. Dionysius and Pancracius Parish, which the Servant Priests and Brothers of the Home of the Mother have been running since October when Archbishop Carlos Osoro of Valencia asked them to take charge of the parish.
As you can well imagine, after getting to talk with the Holy Father, we cannot stop giving thanks to God.
The day before Corpus Christi (which is celebrated in the Vatican on Thursday, as originally practiced), Sr. Sara Maria and Sr. Caitlin went to the rehearsal that took place at St. John Lateran, where the Corpus Christi mass was going to take place the next day.
The Servant Sisters of the Home of the Mother in Móstoles (Madrid, Spain) are have been having a great time as the school year has drawn to a close. We´ve already visited Narnia twice, following in the footsteps of author C.S. Lewis, who tried to convey the Christian message with his fiction books ¨The Chronicles of Narnia¨ to a difficult audience: children and young people.
