Photos from a Venezuelan Parish Christmas 2011

One of my new friends, Padre Luis E. Rodriguez is the pastor of Parroquia del Espiritu Santo (Parish of the Holy Spirit) located in the Diocese of Teques in Venezuela. He recently shared photos of his parish during Christmas.  He wanted us to see why he loves this parish so much.

As you will see from the photos, the parish has a great devotion to Divine Mercy. In fact, Father Luis is the priest who painstakingly and lovingly worked on a new film for the recitation of the Divine Mercy Chaplet for EWTN. I hope you get to see it soon but more on that at a later date.

Thanks for sharing! I used to live in Caracas, Venezuela in the late 70's - 7th grade through 9th grade. It's a beautiful country with beautiful churches.
