50 years of priestly ministry (Mexico)

On Monday 22 August, the feast of the Queenship of Mary, in a Mass celebrated in the parish of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City, the sscc brothers gathered to give thanks for the 50 years of priestly ministry of Ángel Martínez Chávez sscc. Ángel entered the Congregation in August 1962. As a child, he heard a phrase that has marked his life and still inspires his pastoral service: “  I have left everything to follow you, I have sold everything to have you and I have died to live for you".

At the end of the Mass the brothers thanked Ángel for teaching them, by his witness to the Good Shepherd to be good shepherds; they thanked God for his fifty years of priestly life at the service of the Eucharist and for his pastoral charity in the Church.  Thanks too were expressed to all the brothers who have accompanied Ángel during all these years and God was asked to grant Ángel many more years of vitality and strength so that he may continue to do what he loves most: to serve with joy. 

After the Eucharistic celebration, a meal was offered in the parish auditorium with a large participation of representatives of the different works in Mexico.
