Your duty is to sanctify yourself. Yes, even you. Who thinks that this task is only for priests and religious? To everyone, without exception, our Lord said: Be ye perfect, as my heavenly Father is perfect. St. Josemaria

Our Lady of Angels has made her move on LA!



Pope Benedict XVI on Tuesday named a Texas bishop to take over the archdiocese of Los Angeles after Cardinal Roger M. Mahony's expected retirement next year.

The pontiff appointed Jose Gomez as co-adjutor archbishop of Los Angeles, an assisting position that essentially puts him first in line to succeed Mahony, who reaches the mandatory retirement age of 75 for bishops in February.

Gomez is archbishop of San Antonio, a post he took up five years ago, during the last few months of John Paul II's papacy. Gomez, 58, is also a member of Opus Dei, the controversial group favored by John Paul II for its conservative teachings.

Many of you may or may not heard of Opus Dei, founded by Saint JoseMaria.. But this is great news for the Catholic Church in American, for the LA and Pro-Life . LA is going from a left-wing archbishop and less in a year will have a very Pro-life Archbishop!! Who is only 58! That's young. He is good man, a faithful man who loves his church and the people.

Thank you God, for your mercy on us.

"My Mother, my Lady of Torreciudad, Queen of the Angels, ‘show yourself a mother’ and make us into good and faithful children,”
wrote Saint Josemaría on this date in the visitors’ book at the shrine of Our Lady of Torreciudad, after praying before the statue there. His parents had first taken him to Torreciudad at the age of two in thanksgiving for his recovery from a serious illness
