From the desk of Father Vicente Wittingham:

IT’S NOT A GOOD BYE Like a well known says...

"It's nothing but a farewell, it is a brief goodbye Very soon in this House, together we will meet the Lord " By completing 10 years of priestly ministry, I am only with my heart admired by the greatness of God, who has allowed me to live them in his love, which has allowed me to mature in my faith, to enjoy his ´ presence, the affection of my people, the joy of communicating it to Him which is the cause of our joy. What else can I say? The Lord knows well of my limitations, my cravings and hopes, my solitudes that, with his help, with the unconditional support of my beautiful people, who although their names are not mentioned here, know very well the love that they have given and I hope they continue giving me. It is not a good bye, I think to be hearing of Father Jose saying, my friend, I can really say, is "He who gives me his friendship, respect and affection " It is not a good bye that they repeat like a wonderful echo, those people that I carry engraved in my heart, and that day by day they were weaving the prodigious thread of the friendship. It is not a good bye what my beloved groups tell me, with whom I shared so many experiences. It is not a good bye is what they sing again and again, the voices of my young people, with whom I enjoy the love and my music. Mary, my mother, you know more than anyone of the love I have for you... so says in the letter of my humble song...

OYE NIÑA MI PLEGARIA CONVERTIDA EN CANCION… Until then, with Jesus, next to him, in the Tabernacle....

 

Blessings…Father Vicente
