My Life in Warm and Cold Colors

My Life in Warm and Cold Colors

Even though I am not the President of the United States, the creator of a new painting technique, or a heroic missionary looking for new places to evangelize, I do believe that my life so far has been meaningful and exciting. My name is Angel Valdez; I was born in Cd. Juarez. I live in […]

Getting pointed in the right direction

Getting pointed in the right direction

When I discerned to resume my priestly formation after being “on hiatus” for several years, I looked forward to many things that I missed from my previous time in formation.

New School Year

New School Year

Something that characterizes the beginning of the new school year is the list of books that are necessary for classes.

My assignment at Santo Niño de Atocha

Great summer, a time were people can get burned, or like my mom says “Para que te pongas prietito”; in other words, so you can get your skin more burned! It is also a great time for mosquitos; “love them”. And also the best time were all of us show our true smell, of sweat, […]

Summer assignment

Summer assignment

Mostly seminarians are so excited when summer is approaching. Some of us are excited to go home, for vacation, to visit our family and friends, but most of all, we are all excited for our summer assignments. Two years ago, I was assigned to the same church that I am currently doing my summer apostolate. […]
