Guiding Our Children


Praying at Our Lady of La Leche

“At the end of my life, God will ask me one question…’What did you do with the children I gave to you?’  I will tell Him that I tried my best with all of you, but I don’t want anyone to be missing.  I wants all of us in Heaven together.”

– Erlinda Soratorio (Mommy)
