Dear mother Elvira, Fathers, brothers and sisters, missionaries, boys and girls,
We wish you a Happy Easter from Florida . We started our Holy Week with a withdrawal for the families, ended on Palm Sunday at the brotherhood of Mary Immaculate with a beautiful Procession. There were many people, palms in their hands,- luckily there’ s plenty of palms here! We celebrated together the Holy Mass and we had a nice meeting between parents and children.: there were about four hundred people. This date was even more meaningful to us because a few days ago this house was protected by miracle from a big fire that started far from here but it stopped on the other side of the road that separates our estate.
Our indefatigable retired Bishop came to celebrate the Holy Mass on Holy Thursday, at the girls’ first , then at the boys’. After, on Good Friday ,he celebrated the Holy function. Then during the Easter Vigil Christopher and Jeffrey were baptized and another Christopher was confirmed. The icing on the cake was the Holy Mass at dawn by the seashore celebrated by a visiting priest . Also Mary Immaculate Brotherhood was present. We got up very early in the morning to celebrate this Holy Mass and our “ cathedral” was nature: how beautiful!
We wish to thank Risen Jesus and the resurrection we see every day in the boys and girls who stay in our houses .
Albino, Joyce and the American Families
