The Feast of St. Teresa of Avila. October 15, 2014

Early in morning I’m ready to leave Burgos and move on to Hornillos. I carry with me in my heart the many prayers you placed on the wooden cross before I departed for this pilgrimage. I will send those prayers pleading for healing, reconciliation , peace of mind, and those of gratitude for many blessings.
Teresa walks with each one of us, and as she teaches, the humanity of Christ is the gateway into God. As I walk, I will up in prayer the German immigrants who helped to found this parish ; I will pray for the priests and sisters who ministered, especially the sisters who gave their lives for thousands of children in the school ; I pray for the people who brought a variety of Hispanic and Latino cultures into our parish, many who remain a vibrant part of the parish; I pray for all the people who have been apart of our history until the present day; I pray in a special way for our young, for God is tugging at my heart and nudging my conscience to reach out to the young and help them to see the gifts God has given them and that st Teresa’s will be a parish that will make way for these young and their gifts.
Thank you all for praying for me on this pilgrimage of faith. For those who sent messages through blog and email: THANK YOU!!!! All those messages seem to arrive at just the right time. Thus Camino is beautiful but very different from the first camimo. You are helping me in ways you will never know. Thank you again.
Happy and Blessed Feast.
Buen camino. Fr. Frank

    Fr. Frank,

    Thank you for sharing your journey with us. Each time I read your blog, it seems to hit home with something I am dealing with- just like the messages that are sent to you. God’s timing is amazing. I pray that God’s blessings continue throughout your journey.



  4. Happy Feast Day Padre! Thinking of you and praying for you everyday. I still wake up every morning a little disoriented and the first thought that comes to mind is “where am I supposed to be walking today”? Maybe that is a metaphor our maybe it just means I wish I were there.
    Buen Camino!
