Honduras: Comayagua

After travelling from the North Coast to Comayagua with Missioners of Christ I was able to celebrate daily Mass for them in their chapel (above) located very near our friary. I was also able to collaborate with them on a number of local activites.

Saturday, August 18, was a full formation day for the newly formed Corazon Puro (Pure Heart) youth chastity group. The group was formed just a few weeks ago by participating in two successive weekend retreats led by Fr. Agustino Torres, CFR, and a Corazon Puro team from New York. These Honduran youth are now entering into an extended period of formation to prepare them to live and witness to their peers the liberating message of chastity. In the afternoon we looked at the section in the Catechism of the Catholic Church on the creation of the human person. We then looked more closely at the different dimensions of the human person (mind, heart, body and soul) and tried to understand the different factors (both positive and negative) that can influence our actions and some criteria to help discern and make wise decisions in accordance with God's will. In the evening we spent time together in adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in the Casa Guadalupe chapel (above).

On Sunday, August 19, we celebrated Mass for the boys and young men of the Granja Jesus Nazaret, and took the older youth on an excursion to a beautiful water fall about an hour and a half outside of Comayagua.
