Message from Fr. Beaugrand “Defend life, promote peace!” Pope Francis told the Colombians this very clear message and we need to take it seriously. We are artisans of peace and promoters of life. Every year, we have this very clear opportunity to promote life in a very demonstrative way and very peaceful way. This year, I have been invited to say Holy Mass before the walk at 10:00am in the Carmelite Monastery in SF. It is such an honor and I thank God for it. It will be a sung mass! I hope we will be united all together as a community: Hollister and Pismo Beach. The way to honor life is to honor the source of life: Our Lord Jesus Christ. What a way to thank God and in the meantime to implore Him to rain graces over the city while we will walk and show example to the world. As you know, I planned to go a long time ago and when I received this invitation I was very excited and honored. I certainly do not deserve it so God has his ways. We will try to be at some point on the plaza to be united together and to walk and pray to end this abomination. It will be the feast of Saint John Chrysostom the golden mouth and I pray the Holy Ghost that He will inspire me to say what God wants. If you can’t make it, you certainly can be united spiritually by prayers and penance. Let’s be united!
