El Padre Juan Sosa celebra sus 25 años de ordenado este sabado Mayo 19 2012

"Padre Juan Sosa"
Todos en el Instituto queremos expresar nuestro agradecimiento a Dios por el regalo que nos ha dado en tu persona y tu dedicacion al Instituto Nacional Hispano de Liturgia.  Que Dios te bendiga siempre y te acompañe en tu caminar en la vida.

Felicidades en tus 25 años de vida sacerdotal

 

Descanse en paz Monseñor Agustín Román. 
Por Luis Guardia

El Monseñor Agustín Román ya no está en la tierra, su corazón dejó de latir, y como tantos cubanos no pudo ver la libertad de su patria… Dios sabe cuánto amó a Cuba, y como el mismo dijera: "Sé que cuando esté en el cielo, podré ver a Cuba mucho mejor", ahora podrá divisar su tan añorada Diócesis de Matanzas. Este martes, un día antes de su deceso, tuve la oportunidad de verlo, de casualidad pasaba al medio día cerca de la Ermita de la Caridad y decidí entrar, el Monseñor Román estaba ofreciendo misa, haciendo valer el lema de su episcopado "Ay de mí si no predico el Evangelio", se veía frágil de salud, pero como siempre vigoroso de carácter y Fe.

Esta intervención de Román pertenece al documental "Oposición: Medio siglo de lucha", que estrenamos en Enero de 2009. Como detalle curioso voy a compartir una anécdota del día que grabamos la entrevista: Yo llamo a Román al medio día, para interesarme por su salud y en base a ello pactar la entrevista, me dice que estaba de lo mejor, que oficiaría Misa esa noche, era un día entre semana, y que sí quería preparara todo para entrevistarlo cuando finalizara la ceremonia.

Comenzamos a grabar la entrevista alrededor de las 9:30 de la noche, en una habitación contigua al confesionario en la Ermita de la Caridad, finalizada esta me dice, "ve recogiendo que yo me cambio de ropa", pasados 10 minutos con una maleta de luces, cámara, trípode y demás me encuentro que estoy dentro de la Ermita, está cerrada, con las luces totalmente apagadas. Eran casi las 11 de la noche, las puertas son de cristal y tienen doble cerradura, yo había dejado el teléfono en el auto para que no sonara durante la entrevista, reviso otras puertas, todas cerradas, incluso pensé me quedo a dormir en uno de los bancos, diviso a una persona de seguridad caminando por los alrededores y le llamo, este no me escucha, en eso Román, parado tras de mí en tono jocoso y con esa voz potente me dice: "chico como vas a tener miedo si estas en la casa de Dios". Descanse en paz Monseñor Agustín Román.

Bishop Roman, first Cuban emigre to become US bishop, dies at age 83

MIAMI (CNS) -- Auxiliary Bishop Agustin A. Roman of Miami, the first Cuban exile to be made a U.S. bishop, died April 11 at the age of 83. The Archdiocese of Miami reported that Bishop Roman suffered cardiac arrest at Our Lady of Charity Shrine, which he founded to honor the patroness of Cuba, and where he continued to spend much of his time in retirement. He died later at Mercy Hospital. After visitation and a wake at the same shrine April 12 and 13, his funeral Mass was to be celebrated at the Cathedral of St. Mary April 14. Bishop Roman was the son of Cuban peasants who never forgot his roots, according to a release from the Archdiocese of Miami. "His ministry in south Florida has been marked by humility, tenacity and unceasing devotion to his work," said a biography on the archdiocesan website. The late bishop tended "to speak in parables, using stories full of everyday symbolism to illustrate his point. Yet in his quiet, unassuming way, he (got) things done." His death came two weeks after Bishop Roman watched on television from Miami with other Cuban-Americans as Pope Benedict XVI celebrated Masses in his homeland, part of celebrations of the 400th anniversary of Our Lady of Charity of El Cobre. It also followed just days after the announcement on Easter Sunday that Father Felix Varela, an 18th-century Cuban priest who also had a long career in exile in the United States, had been declared venerable by the Vatican, which is the first major step in the process toward canonization.

To all interested parties,

The “ASLI-Spanish Language School” in Cuernavaca, Morelos MEXICO. The School was founded in 1989 by a group of Teachers and Administrators with more than 30 years of experience on the Spanish School Industry. Through the years we have been recognized by Private and Public Institutions that have sent their employees or executives to learn Spanish to our School. What we offer is a program where your members can learn the language in an intensive program that is divided in two parts, one of three hrs. grammar and language structure and three hrs. functional Spanish where the student practice what he learned in the first hours. We offer small classes with a guarantee of maximum five students; also we have a semi-private and a private program. Normally our students stay with Mexican host families that are interested in the student´s learning of the language and culture. They will be eating their “desayuno” and “comida” with the family and will be a great opportunity to practice what is learned at school.

In the Past we have served Priests and other people related to the Catholic Church Organizations, as the former Archbishop for Military Services and now Grand Master of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem the Most Reverend Edwin F. O´Brien.
