Dear Fathers:
As we celebrate the Sacrament of Penance in so many parishes this time of year, I often find myself being VERY careful about giving any kind of penance that involves reading scripture to our Spanish-speaking.  How many times have we heard our parishioners say, "Padre, no puedo como leer."  A recent article in the Wall Street Journal gives interesting background on the education reforms so needed and specifically names Michoacán – where so many of our parishioners and our priests have roots – as one of the worst states for education.  Click attachment below to read full article.
