Christian faith is our complete confidence and unshakable belief in the Almighty. It teaches us to absolutely trust as we situate ourselves in accordance with God’s divine will. In Mary, we can glimpse the realization of such faith - her life truly radiates her fullness as a Christian.
This year, the Church celebrates the Year of Faith. Our theme “Mary, Model of Great Faith” is an invitation for us not just to look on her as our Heavenly Queen dressed in majesty but as a humble model, a caring mother and a constant companion of Our Lord Jesus.
As we once again celebrate the Solemn Festivity in honor of the Queen of the Most Holy Rosary- Our Lady of Pacita, may we be imitators of her the way she listened to the Word of God, reflected on it in her heart, obeyed it and completely trusted on it. Like Mary, may we always aspire to be closer to Jesus, closer the way she carries Him in her loving and Maternal arms.
I, with the Hermano and Hermana, and the Parish Pastoral and Finance Councils, joyfully extend to all the parishioners, guests, sponsors, patrons, friends and devotees of Our Lady of Pacita my warm fiesta greetings
Viva La Virgen!
