Our very dear Fr. Alfonso Gálvez, an indispensable collaborator on our website since its foundation, celebrates his 60th anniversary of priestly ordination today. It is a day of great joy in Heaven and on Earth in which we at Adelante la Fe give thanks to Our Lord God and entrust our dear Fr. Alfonso to the care and protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary so that he might have many more years in service of the Truth in these times of great confusion and open apostasy. Yes, we give thanks to God today:
For Fr. Gálvez’s contribution to this site in his Sunday homilies and feature articles that represent a first rate spiritual aid to many souls who seek and desire to be faithful to Christ and to walk the road toward eternal salvation.
For spreading love for Jesus Christ. Few preachers manage to convey true love for Our Lord, which shows that you are completely in love, to the point that we feel a healthy envy for but a drop of of what you transmit.
For the contribution of Fr. Gálvez and his foundation, the Society of Jesus Christ the Priest, whose spiritual fruit is making priests who are fully identified with Jesus Christ from their childhood when they begin to receive formation of the highest degree (moral, doctrinal, pastoral, and liturgical).
For the contribution of Fr. Gálvez, in the end, to the Catholic Church, so needed in these bleak, dark times, and whose evangelizing light soothes and satisfies the tribulation that we’re living in today.
For all of this, CONGRATULATIONS FR. ALFONSO GÁLVEZ, and may OUR LORD GOD GRANT YOU MANY MORE YEARS AS AN INSTRUMENT OF SALVATION.
All of us at Adelante la Fe
