Ligia la felecito por su comentario y sugerencia que nosotros los sacerdotes y en espeial los misioneros debemos mantenernos al pie del canon en estos criticos momentos y no abandonar a los pobres especialmente aquellos mas abandonados y vulnerables, encomiendanos en tus oraciones, aqui en Roma tenemos una casa de acoglienza que cobija a unos 50 hombres la mayoria inmigrantes y en condicion de calle, hasta ahora ninguno infectado y esperamos que Dios por la intercesion de la Virgen y san Jose nos siga protegiendo, pues sabemos q si alguno se infecta lo mas probable es q el gobierno cierre la casa, quedando los demas desprotegidos en la calle, somos de la comunidad de padres de la madre Teresa de Calcuta, y soy tu copaisano del sur de Vzla, el hermosos estado Bolivar, pero ya casi 10 anos misionando y saciando la sed de Jesus en los mas pobres de los pobres, no t olvides de rezar por nosotros aqui en Roma. Dios te bendiga y bendiga y protega a nuestra grande y hermosa patria.
