Julian y Diana Rodriguez son devotos Católicos y miembros muy activos de la Iglesia de St. Mary. Vinieron a este país, buscando asilo debido a la terri-ble violencia en su ciudad natal.

Gen plizyè semèn de sa, nou rapòte sou yon fanmi New London ki gen yon gwo pwoblèm. Julian ak Diana Rodriguez se katolik fèvan ak manm trè aktif nan Legliz Sent Mari. Yo rive nan peyi sa a, lè yo tap chèche azil paske gen anpil vyolans nan peyi yo. Yo rete nan peyi a paske pitit yo, Santiago, ki te fèt isit la, te gen yon maladi jenetik ki menase lavi e ki egzije anpil atansyon ak tretman eksperimantal. Santiago, koulye a gen 14 an, li nan yon kondisyon ki estab, men yo resevwa yon lòd pou depòta-syon pou Julian, sa te menase kapasite fanmi Rodriguez la pou yo viv tankou yon fanmi epi asire Santiago swen sante li bez-wen. ...

This colorful and very beautiful feast has its origins in Peru. It celebrates the faith of people, often poor and oppressed, that they are never alone or abandoned, but that God constantly works miracles on their behalf. This faith found its expression in a picture of Christ’s crucifixion that remained standing on the ruin of a Church wall after an earthquake had devastated all other structures in the area. An event of the 18th century stayed with the Peruvian people and gave them courage to withstand all sorts of disasters in life with the conviction that God, the God of miracles, would not abandon them. Please c...

El Señor de los Milagros

Posted on September 20, 2018 in: St. Mary

  Esta fiesta colorida y muy hermosa tiene sus orígenes en el Perú. Celebra la fe de las personas, a menudo pobres y oprimidas, que nunca están solos o abandonados, sino que Dios constantemente hace milagros en su nombre. Esta fe encontró su expresión en una imagen de la crucifixión de Cristo que permaneció de pie sobre la ruina de un muro de la Iglesia después de que un terremoto habia devastado todas las otras estructuras en el área. Este evento del siglo 18 se quedó con el pueblo Peruano y les dio fuerzas para soportar todo tipo de desastres en la vida con la convicción de que Dios, el Dios de los milagros, no l...
