I would like to begin by once again sending my condolences to the Johnson family on the death of Mrs. Loetta Johnson.You can read the rest of Father Marcel Guarnizo statement here
I also feel obliged to answer questions from my parishioners, as well as from the public, about the incident on February 25th.
Here are the facts: On Saturday February 25th I showed up to officiate at a funeral Mass for Mrs. Loetta Johnson. The arrangements for the Mass were also not my own. I wish to clarify that Ms. Barbara Johnson (the woman who has since complained to the press), has never been a parishioner of mine. In fact I had never met her or her family until that morning.

One of the books I am reading this Lent is Consoling the Heart of Jesus by Father Michael Gaitley, MIC. It is a beautiful book and a beautiful "do it yourself" spiritual retreat. Father has a new book 33 Days to Morning Glory.
