  1. Alabado sea el Señor.

    Con el trágico terremoto que ha asolado a Chile en estos días he perdido todo contacto con la familia de mi hijo el Sr. Juan Dettwiler Rojas, periodista, que vive en una población que está a orillas del río Bio Bio. Les estaría muy agradecido si pudieran enviarme un recado si saben algo sobre ellos.

    1. Estimado señor.Por los datos que da,creo que su hijo es el esposo de mi prima Marisol Rodríguez(tienen tres hijos), de Concepción. Si es así, puede estar tranquilo,pues sabemos que están bien. No hemos podido hablar por teléfono con mi prima desde España todavía, pero sí con sus padres y todos están bien.
      Me alegra infinito darle tan buena noticia.Si le funciona la red,puede encontrar esta información junto con una fotografía que pusimos de ellos para tratar de encontrarlos cuando aún no teníamos noticias, en el buscador especial de google (escribir:terremoto en Chile busco a alguien)

  2. Greetings to the Archbishop and all the people in the area of Concepcion

    As Bishop of one of the poorest Dioceses in South Africa I want to express our solidarity and prayer for you in this time of pain, loss and desaster especialy to you in the area mostly affected by the recent earthquake.

    Crises tend to bring out the worst and the best in people. May this time of trial give rise to the most noble of our values and virtues, to rebuild not only infrastructure but the spiritual beauty that we are capable of.

    May God bless you all

    1. I’m hoping Father Miguel from Dichato and the parish are holding up through this difficult time. I visited the parish in Dichato in November of 2007 with my friend Father Mike, who helped celebrate mass during our brief visit. Please know that our prayers are with you and that I would like to help the parish rebuild. Please contact me by email. God Bless.
