    Louise,
    Thank you! Sister Milagros is a native of Madrid and so you can bet that she can cook an authentic paella. God bless you and the Church in Australia !!! I receive bad news from some of my other readers in Australia. Here is the link to my Open Letter, https://wp.me/px5Zw-95e, I urge you to send the link to everyone you know, especially to your priests and bishops.

    Missed your birthday but certainly hope it was as great a day as it appears to have been in the photos.
    May God Bless you for another year and more Bishop Gracida. You may be ready for heaven but it appears the Good Lord has more for you to do for the Faithful in these difficult times.

    Thank you for your steadfast adherence to The One True Faith!

  9. It is just wonderful to watch bishop Gracida so healthy and happy at his 95th birthday with the dear sisters and the nice seminarian, specially to see his private chapel, ad multos annos!

    Dear Bishop Gracida,

    Cicero wrote old age is nothing but a defect in character.
    So you will never grow old…

    On a Catholic note a good shepherd tends his flock, protects his flock, and leads them to greener pastures.
    And you are a wonderful shepherd!

    Happy Birthday and God Bless!
    One of your New Hampshire sheep.

    Happy Birthday, Bishop! I do so enjoy your newsletter. There are not many bishops like you, unfortunately. May God bless you!

  12. Barb Watry says:

    Happy, Happy Birthday. So wonderful that you can serve the Lord for all these years. May He bless you greatly.

  13. Happy Birthday Bishop…God Bless You

    Thank you, Melanie !!! I am praying that the Holy Spirit will lead your mother to the Faith !!!

    Lovely! Congratulations on your 95th birthday 🎂. I had no idea that you are that age so I am a bit shaken, as I realize that I may not have these blog posts of yours to look forward to for much longer. God willing, may they continue, Bishop Gracida, and thank you ever so much! Would you please kindly pray, faithful readers, too, for my mother, who may not even have been baptize, and seems not open to the Catholic faith. She, Louise, soon will reach 92, her head is good yet, she gardens and seems not her age. I am not ready to lose her, so your prayers for me would be most appreciated. I would like for us to have eternal life together in heaven eventually.

  16. Gertrude says:

    A somewhat belated happy birthday Your Grace and it looks as though you had a truly splendid time. I,send you my poor prayers for your continued health and your courage.

    God bless you Bishop Gracida. I thank God that I get your blog as it really helps us in these difficult times. Mat our dear Lord keep you with us awhile longer and then reward you abundantly. In Christ, Penelope Costin….Canada
