2020 Archbishop's Charity and Development Drive (ABCD) Begins
Christ has no body but yours

no hands, no feet on earth but yours. Yours are the eyes with which he looks compassion on this world, your feet with which he walks to do good, yours are the hands with which he blesses all the world.

While some objects, such as statues, relics and crosses, are to be venerated as symbols of Christ, these objects cannot serve as the body of Christ in today's world; but people can. St. Teresa of Avila's quote is meant to show us that we are His eyes, hands and feet, and now we are to see, go and act on His behalf.

As a Catholic community, we embrace the call to action to make God present in all our lives. For many of us, our commitment to the ABCD allows us to be part of that active witness of our faith. Through the ABCD, we serve our community by giving hope to the hopeless, strengthening the faith of the discouraged and providing charity to those most in need.

Once a year, we are called to commit ourselves to the ongoing work of the Archdiocese of Miami through the ABCD. Next week, every parish in the Archdiocese will unite to be One in Faith, One in Hope and One in Charity so that together, through the ABCD, we can be the eyes, hands and feet of Jesus. Please prayerfully consider making a gift. Individually, we can change our own life, but together, we can change the world.

Síguelo y cambia tu vida.El mensaje de Jesús es claro. Cuando Él dice esas palabras, "cambia tu vida,"Elte está pidiendo que hagas un cambio profundo en toda tu vida. Para hacer eso, primero, debemos escuchar el Evangelio y aprender quién es Jesús. Y sólo cuandoempezamos a conocerlo, podemos elegir seguirlo y ayudarlo a ayudar a los demás. Eso es lo que significa ser un discípulo.

Hay muchos aspectos de su vida que nos ayudan a entender cómo debemos cambiar para ser más como Jesús. Él nos llama a levantar los pobres, para acariciarlos y amarlos; para luchar contra las injusticias; para difundir la Buenas Nueva; y compartir todos los bienes de la creación de Dios para que no sean guardados sólo por unos pocos. Y aunque no podemos cambiar nuestra vida en un día, podemos tomar las medidas para seguirlo todos los días y convertirnos enmejores discípulos.

En este nuevo año mientras reflexionas sobre cómo puedes cambiar para ser más como El, una manera significativa de considerar es haciendo un regalo de esperanza a través de la Campaña de Caridad y Desarrollo del Arzobispo (ABCD). Recibirásuna carta del arzobispo Wenski sobre el ABCD. Por favor léalo y considere en oracióncomo va aapoyar al ABCD en la apelación de este año. Las buenas obras que el ABCD hace posible son un testimonio de nuestra fe, una fe que está muy viva y esparte de cada uno de nosotros. Unámonos para ser Uno en la fe, uno en la esperanza, uno en la caridad.

Dear Brothers,

Following some notices from members of the faithful that these “Catholic Priests” may be going around people’s home and after inquiry in regard to their person, I wish to notify you that a “Father Thomas Smith”, a “Father Simon” and/or a “Father Thomas Matthews” from India, are not authorized by Archbishop Wenski or his delegate to serve in any capacity the Roman Catholic faithful in the Archdiocese of Miami.

Therefore, please alert your parishioners that these priests should not be entering their homes nor be called upon by the faithful to perform any priestly ministry in the Archdiocese of Miami. Should they use their services, they do so with full knowledge of their status with the Archdiocese of Miami which is not responsible for their actions or negligence.
