  • The blog header depicts an important and yet mis-understood New Testament scene, Jesus flogging the money-changers out of the temple. I selected it because the faith that gives us consolation can also make us very uncomfortable. Both Divine Mercy and Divine Justice meet in Jesus. Priests are ministers of reconciliation, but never at the cost of truth. In or out of season, we must be courageous in preaching and living out the Gospel of Life. The title of my blog is a play on words, not Flogger Priest but Blogger Priest.

Fr. Suarez Does Healing Mass at Holy Family Church


Fr. Fernando Suarez offered a healing Mass and service at Holy Family last night. We figure about 650 people came out. He is well known in the Filipino community.


Here I am with Father Suarez on the rectory porch.  I heard confessions from 4:30 to 6:30 PM and made myself available for more after Mass.  Father Suarez offered the healing blessings to individuals in the church and then went over to the overflow crowd in the hall.


The success of the event was all due to the many volunteers who set up for the event, gave hospitality to the priests and organized the parking and seating.  Chief among these is Monette Roxas-Tharp (pictured below) who took registrations and functioned as the parish coordinator.
