Lent prepares the faithful to celebrate the Paschal Mystery of Christ’s suffering, death and resurrection. It is a time for reflection and spiritual renewal, a time to examine one’s relationships with God and with others. The Church also calls Catholics to a spirit of penance, above all to practice the “Acts of Religion”: fasting, prayer and almsgiving, “which express conversion in relation to oneself, to God, and to others.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, nos.1969 and 1434).

Cause of Beatification and Canonization of Bishop Gallegos
Earlier last summer, Bishop Soto sent a letter regarding the Cause of the Beatification and Canonization of Bishop Gallegos.  We are happy to announce that Cardinal Prefect Angelo and Cardinal Amato from the Congregation of the Cause of Saints anticipates the process of submitting the Cause for Bishops in the fall of 2016.

 
Per Cardinal Amato, "the recognition of a miracle through the intercession of the Servant of God is required for Beatification.  I encourage you and all the parishioners of your respective communities to promote awareness of Bishop Gallegos and invoke his intercession.  Please click here for additional information on the process and requirements for sainthood.
