Vocation Corner

Friends,

What do a celibate man, a guy who is dating, a married man, and a priest have in common? Apparently just being men, since each one them lives a different stage of life. However, almost 91 years ago, on August 15, 1926, despite being so different in their vocations, four men sealed with their blood a story of love.

Salvador Lara, David Roldan, Manuel Morales, and Fr. Luis Batís, like many other witnesses, lived in a time of persecution to the Catholic Church in Mexico. They decided to stand firm in their faith, to live what they believed, and peacefully defend their faith. Salvador, David and Manuel founded a local group of the A.C.J.M. (Catholic action of the Mexican Youth) this was worth them to be apprehended on August 14, 1926, and later to be executed with to Father Luis Batís, on 15 of August of 1926.

The commanders of the army asked them to renounce their faith, and thus they would let them go without any punishment, but they filled with the courage that only faith can give responded: “Long life Christ the King and Holy Mary of Guadalupe.”

Father Luis Batís was pleading for Manuel Morales: “The only thing I ask you is to release Manuel Morales, he has to take care of his three young children, he has as a family. I offer my life for him. I will be a victim; I am willing to be”. The soldiers did not listen to the priest’s pleas. Manuel replied, “God will watch over my children”.

The bullets of the military took their earthly lives, but they gave them entrance into the heavenly life by turning them into martyrs of the faith in Christ the King and Mary of Guadalupe.

Today we celebrate the feast of the body and blood of Christ, we have the opportunity to renew our faith and devotion in Christ present in the Holy Eucharist. Although each of us has a different life story, we are joined by the same story of love for Christ alive and present in each one of us, but especially in the Eucharist.

Happy Corpus Christi!

Fr. Manny

Amigos y amigas,

¿Qué tienen en común un célibe, un novio, un casado, y un sacerdote? En apariencia solo ser hombres, ya que cada uno vive una historia diferente. Sin embargo, hace casi 91 años, el 15 de agosto de 1926, a pesar de ser tan diferentes en sus vocaciones, cuatro hombres sellaron con su sangre una historia de amor.

Salvador Lara, David Roldan, Manuel Morales, y P. Luis Batís, como muchos otros testigos, vivieron en una época de persecución a la Iglesia católica en México. Ellos decidieron mantenerse firmes en su fe, vivir lo que creían, y defender pacíficamente su fe. Salvador, David y Manuel fundaron un grupo local de la A.C.J.M. (acción católica de la Juventud Mexicana) esto les valió ser apresados el 14 de agosto de 1926, y más tarde ser ejecutados junto al Padre Luis Batís, el 15 de agosto de 1926.

Los comandantes del ejército les pedían que renunciaran a su fe, y así los dejarían ir sin ningún castigo, pero ellos llenos del valor que solo la fe puede dar respondían: “viva Cristo Rey y Santa Maria de Guadalupe”.

El Padre Luis Batís abogaba por Manuel Morales: “Lo único que les ruego es que perdonen la vida a Manuel Morales en aten¬ción a los tres niños pequeños que tiene de familia. Yo ofrezco mi vida por él. Seré una víctima, estoy dispuesto a serlo” Los soldados no escucharon las suplicas del sacerdote.  Manuel replicaba: “Dios velará por mis hijos”.

Las balas de los militares les quitaron la vida terrenal, pero les dieron la entrada a la vida celestial al convertirlos en mártires de la fe en Cristo Rey y Maria de Guadalupe.

Hoy celebraremos la fiesta del cuerpo y la sangre de Cristo, tenemos la oportunidad de renovar nuestra fe y devoción en la presencia de cristo en la sagrada Eucaristía. A pesar de que cada uno de nosotros tenemos una historia diferente, nos une la misma historia de amor a Cristo vivo y presente en cada uno de nosotros, pero especialmente en la Eucaristía.

Feliz Corpus Christi!
