New Bl. Seelos parish rises from closure of others

Diocese closes five churches: and then the Parish Priest of the merged parish want to be a "facilitator of healing in the new parish".

He says
“Pray that under the patronage of Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos we may be a community so on fire that others cannot but be burned by the love of God.”

Amazing statement when water has just been thrown on the remaining embers.

Please pray for all those living or dead associated with the old parishes of Annunciation, Sts. Peter and Paul, St. Cecilia, St. Gerard Majella and St. Vincent de Paul. Was the intercession of all these saints ever sought?

Ironic that a saint of the Redemptorists, a missionary order par excellence is now the patron saint of a parish made up of closed churches.
