Mi plegaria de despedida: Que, en medio de las distracciones, nos concentremos en Jesús

Queridos amigos en Cristo:

Esta será mi última columna en Noroeste Católico. Durante casi nueve años, ha sido un privilegio para mí escribir una columna mensual como un medio personal para llegar a sus hogares y compartir pensamientos sobre la fe católica, la Iglesia y los problemas contemporáneos. Hacerlo, ha sido un privilegio, y espero que mis palabras hayan resonado en ustedes de cuando en cuando.

My farewell prayer: Amid distractions, may we focus on Jesus

Doing so has been a privilege, and I hope my words have resonated with you from time to time.
