Brother, today you celebrate your first Birthday in Heaven. You left us way too early, @br.anthonyfreeman.
As we still reflect on last Sunday’s Bible readings on the Lord, our Good Shepherd, I pray with you, my brother: “The Lord is my Shepherd, there is nothing I shall want… Goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.” – Rest in peace, Anthony.

“It is our choices… that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” -J. K. Rowling
Navy chaplain Luis Padilla gives last rites to a soldier wounded by sniper fire during a revolt in Venezuela. Braving the streets amid sniper fire, to offer last rites to the dying, the priest encountered a wounded soldier, who pulled himself up by clinging to the priest’s cassock, as bullets chewed up the concrete around them.
The photographer Hector Rondón Lovera, who had to lie flat to avoid getting shot, later said that he was unsure how he managed to take this picture: “I found myself in solid lead for forty-five minutes … I was flattened against the wall while bullets were flying, when the priest appeared. The truth is, I don’t know how I took those pictures, lying on the ground. Rondon shot the government soldier crawling his way up Navy chaplain Luis Padilla’s robe as Padilla looks in the direction of the rebel sniper fire. Government forces quickly took control of the town and over two days pounded the remaining rebels, that had taken cover in the Solano Castle, into submission. A handful that weren’t captured or killed were able to escape into the jungle”.
The photo was taken on June 4 (1962) by Hector Rondón Lovera, photographer of Caracas, for the Venezuelan newspaper “La Republica”. It won the World Press Photo of the Year and the 1963 Pulitzer Prize for Photography. The original title of work is “Aid From The Padre”.

Father Amatulli, has passed away. He was a priest very much loved in Mexico for his tireless apologetic work.
“We feel and regret his departure to the House of the Father, but as men and women of faith, we wait and ask trusting that the Lord will grant him the prize of the Righteous,” his Diocese said in a statement.
Father Amatulli was considered one of the main Catholic apologists in Mexico and throughout Latin America. He wrote about ninety publications, including books and pamphlets, and devoted to warn about different denominations and Protestant sects and refute their mistakes. At present, he promoted the action of the Catholic Church on an international level to solve the problem of the new religious proselytizing and to promote the biblical pastoral. Father Amatulli favored the apostolic and apologetic formation of the laity to counteract with the Bible the Protestant expansion in Mexico and other countries of America. They are present in Mexico, Latin America and some countries in Europe and Africa. His apostolate is developed in three aspects: biblical pastoral, promotion and defense of the faith and permanent parish missions.

Grant them, O Lord, eternal rest and that Your perpetual light illuminates them. May the souls of the faithful departed by the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.
