This morning I offered Holy Mass in our New York office. I was joined in the celebration by my colleagues — and in spirit by our entire CNEWA family. Our purpose was to lift up the special intentions of our many generous benefactors.
I am deeply grateful to all of you who shared your prayer requests with me. Some of you asked me to pray for the soul of deceased loved ones, others for relief from an illness and still others for children who have fallen away from the church. Whatever you asked me to pray for, I carried your intention with me to altar and offered it up to the Lord.
My friends, I am thrilled to do this for you, because it is your generosity and your solidarity with the poor that makes it possible for CNEWA to fulfill the mission entrusted to us by our Holy Father.
It is a privilege to be able to join my prayers with yours during Mass, and I plan to continue doing this for your special intentions in the future. In the meantime, you are never far from my heart. Thank you for your continued generosity, your faith, and your prayerful support!
