In the quiet reflection of Lent, we are called to a deeper communion with God and with one another. This Lent, let’s embark on a journey to build vibrant communities of disciples. It begins with a personal quest to deepen our faith. Imagine immersing yourself in the riches of Scripture, exploring the teachings of the Church, and integrating these insights with the light of the Gospel. It’s not just an intellectual exercise; it’s a heart-transforming experience.

In a learning community, we grow together. Each person’s faith journey, openly shared, becomes a beacon of God’s grace for others. It’s in this shared enlightenment that true understanding flourishes – not just in our minds, but deep in our hearts.

Catholic World Mission understands this. We are committed to fostering these communities of faith. By being part of a learning community, we don’t just learn; we prepare to become apostles of love, reaching out to others with the message of Christ’s infinite love.

This Lent, let’s commit ourselves to not only learn about our faith, but to live it passionately. In doing so, we support others along the way, forming apostles who are ready to spread love and hope in a world that desperately needs it.

Originally from Nicaragua, my family moved to Miami, Florida when I was a teenager.  Soon afterwards I experienced the call to serve God without reservations.  Since then, I have had experience in hospital ministry, working as a middle school teacher, leading a parish school, organizing soccer tournaments for kids, starting a radio station, training priests in leadership formation, organizing a parish community from maintenance to mission, and much more.  I love spiritual direction and preaching.  Years of philosophy, psychology and theological training have enriched my personal life and have shaped my message of hope.
