Welcome to Our Lady of Victory

Dear parishioners of St. Elizabeth, St. Leonard, and Our Lady of Victory,

 

Happy Feast of All Saints!   It’s a special Sunday.  We honor ALL the saints, including all those canonized and “officially recognized” by the Church…..as well as all those holy ones that we have known in our lives, our loved ones: parents and grandparents, aunts and uncles, friends who have gone before us and are now awaiting our arrival in heaven. 

 

This weekend I can’t help imagining Fr. Bill Gamber’s recent        homecoming in heaven.  As we were keeping vigil while he was     nearing death, we heard him speak such loving words to his mother, and then at one point he told us there were others in the room with us, particularly he mentioned his brother, “Bugs” So clearly, he was   anticipating a wonderful reunion with his loved ones.  And then we also know he had so many favorite saints whose lives and words he read and reflected upon so frequently…imagine Fr. Bill now meeting them for the first time in their glorified existence! He will be joyful and very busy visiting.

 

Yes, we will terribly miss Fr. Bill, as we do all those we have loved and who are no longer physically with us.  But let us use this month of November to also “be near” to them, in our thoughts and prayers.           Fr. Bill will now be at ALL of our Masses, praying with us and for us as he so often did.  Let’s continue to draw inspiration from his example of faith, prayer and love…and look forward to the day when we too “will be in that number, when the saints go marching in.”

Queridos feligreses de Santa Isabel, San Leonard y Nuestra Señora de la Victoria,
Feliz Fiesta de Todos los Santos! Es un domingo especial. Honramos a TODOS los santos, incluidos todos aquellos canonizados y “reconocidos oficialmente” por la Iglesia… ..así como todos aquellos santos que hemos conocido en nuestra vida, nuestros seres queridos: padres y abuelos, tías y tíos, amigos que han ido antes que nosotros y ahora están esperando nuestra llegada al cielo.
Este fin de semana no puedo evitar imaginarme al P. El reciente regreso a casa de Bill Gamber en el cielo. Mientras manteníamos la vigilia  mientras  él  se  acercaba  a  la muerte, lo escuchamos decirle 

palabras tan amorosas a su madre, y luego en un momento nos dijo que había otros en la habitación con nosotros, particularmente mencionó a su hermano, "Bugs". Claramente, estaba anticipando una maravillosa reunión con sus seres queridos. Y luego también sabemos que tenía tantos santos favoritos cuyas vidas y palabras leía y sobre las que reflexionaba con tanta frecuencia ... imagínese al P. ¡Bill ahora los encuentra por primera vez en su existencia glorificada! Estará alegre y muy ocupado visitando.

 

Sí, extrañaremos terriblemente al P. Bill, como lo hacemos con todos aquellos a quienes amamos y que ya no están físicamente con nosotros. Pero aprovechemos este mes de noviembre para también “estar cerca” de ellos, en nuestros pensamientos y oraciones. P. Bill estará ahora en TODAS nuestras misas, orando con nosotros y por nosotros como lo hacía tan a menudo. Sigamos inspirándonos en su ejemplo de fe, oración y amor ... y esperamos con ansias el día en que nosotros también "estaremos en ese número, cuando los santos vayan marchando".
