During his homily the Cardinal exhorted Junior to follow in the footsteps of the Guadalupan priest and missionary, Pablo Bejarano Martínez, who for more than seven years was the parish priest of San Nicolás de Bari until his death and who inspired the young seminarian in his priestly vocation.
On this very day Father Paul would serve 60 years of priesthood, so the ceremony was conducive to remembering the life and love for the Church of this Mexican missionary.
For his part, Junior, visibly excited, thanked God for the possibility of fulfilling the dream of Paul and Cardinal Jaime Ortega and praised the work of his trainers in the Seminary of San Carlos and San Ambrosio.
“His fidelity lasts forever” (Psalm 116:2), so is the motto of diaconal ordination that will later mark Junior’s testimony in his pastoral work for the Church who pilgrims in Cuba.
This is the third and final of the transitional diaconal valuations that took place in the Archdiocese of Havana in August, in the midst of a difficult epidemiological circumstance for the country, which requires, from September, to apply new restrictions for the capital.
