Friends of the Rosary:

We pray today’s Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary in memoriam of my dear wife, Maria Blanca, who died today Thursday, October 28, at 4:26 am in Spain’s time in Madrid’s La Paz Hospital.

Her brain was damaged with blood, which unexpectedly appeared when she was at the ICU, one hour and a half after I left her. She suffered extreme pain for a long month as her body was 40 % burned and after a bone marrow transplant. She was 61 years old.

Days before dying, she told me that she was concerned about the faith of those who prayed fervently for her recovery and who might now feel that their prayers are not answered.

Maria Blanca loved the Rosary, and this humble apostolate is dedicated to her.

In my pain, allow me to say more than one Hail Mary in Spanish, remembering Maria Blanca. Maria Blanca, Blanki, we miss you so much.

Ave Maria!
Jesus, I Trust In You!

Feast of St. Jude Thaddaeus and Simon the Zealot

We celebrate today the feast of the Apostles Saints Simon and Jude. They both preached the Gospel in Mesopotamia and Persia, and they both were martyred.

Little is known about them. St. Jude, known as St. Jude Thaddaeus, is quite popular in our society because he is the patron of forgotten and lost causes.

St. Jude Thaddaeus was a brother of St. James the Lesser and a relative of Jesus. St. Jude was the author of a short Epistle in the New Testament.

In this letter, he stressed that the faithful should persevere in the environment of harsh, difficult circumstances. That’s why St. Jude Thaddeus is invoked in desperate situations.

Ave Maria!
Jesus, I Trust In You!
St. Jude Thaddaeus and Simon the Zealot, Pray For Us!
