(ANS – Rome) – “I thank you with all my heart for the expressions of affection and in particular for your prayers on the occasion of the unexpected death of my elder brother Michelangelo. He is already at home and at rest with God.” Fr Chávez writes thanking those who have sent a message or a mark of affection and closeness for the recent unexpected death of his brother Miguel Angel.
“The gospel read at Mass today has become for Michael a joyful reality, a promise fulfilled,” the Rector Major continues. “The Son of Man came for him unexpectedly on the evening of 11 November, as the splendour which now completely illuminates his life. Michael is now in the Kingdom of God which for us is still hidden in our hearts. This is a great consolation for me, as is your closeness which is also a comfort for Martha his wife and the children Michael, Sandra, Myriam, Robin and George, with their families. May God the lover of life be the reason for our living today and always!
