Quiero darles a conocer dos oportunidades para obtener una indulgencia. Éstas oportunidades se dan con dos prácticas tradicionales de nuestra cultura Católica. Yo intento dar atención a muchas prácticas que se han perdido a lo largo de las últimas décadas y hacérlas de su conocimiento.

La bendición de los Niños Dios, el gis de la Epifanía, etc…Read More

Una vez que concluya cada Misa, permanezca en la iglesia y el sacerdote volverá para conducir la bendición de los bambinelli.Read More
