  1. What a wonderful website. Thank you for allowing me to bring St.Joseph home with me! I miss the church and the beautiful homilies Father Kris gives each week. I am looking forward to the cameras being installed so that I can continue to hear the message each week. Happy Easter to all the parishioners who made me feel at home! A special hug for Father Kris.

    • Dearest Marie,

      How lovely to hear from you! I still remember your beautiful smile from when you sat on the pew either in front or behind Steven and me during nine o’clock Mass. I’m so glad that you feel right at home within the St. Joseph Church community. Thank you for subscribing to the blog.

      God bless you abundantly! Happy Easter to you this peaceful, sunny day!


  2. ¡Hola! I visited your page. Very nice. I love this great job. God bless you.
    Love, Rocio at NEX

    • Hello-hello back! Thanks so much for having a look-see. I’ve been thinking about you, keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. Here’s wishing you a peaceful, restful weekend. Love & hugsss till next time…

  3. Visited the area recently & fell in love with the church & community!! Felt SO much joy & peace while there!! Thank you!!

  4. You’ve done a really great job; and, in my humble opinion, it could not be better. Forwarded the address to my nephew in New York so that we will be a bit less apart– one from another.

    • My dear Winnie,

      I’m thrilled that you took the plunge and checked out the blog! Thank you for sharing it with your nephew.

      Your comments mean a lot to me! Thank you sooo much!


  5. The new blog is great! Very informative with good categories. Pictures are nice, too. Thank you for all your hard work in developing this site.

    • You’re very welcome! It’s always encouraging to get feedback ’cause it’s part of building community, my overall goal for the blog.

      • Deli, we met at the bishop’s banquet in Weslaco. I forgot to give you my tickets for the prizes. To my surprise the Most Reverend Bishop D.E. Flores was at the door to say “thank you” and “goodbye.” I am enjoying the Franciscan daily meditations site I found on your blog. Josefina

      • Howdy, howdy, Josefina. What a delightful time we had at Bishop Danny’s fundraiser! We can hardly wait to do it again next year.

        I was tickled pink to hear that you’re part of the Franciscan laity in your community. I had no idea that the group existed in the Rio Grande Valley. We were also excited to learn about the Capuchin Poor Clare nuns in Alamo. Their cookies are delicious— so good, in fact, that I added links to their website on my “Finding St. Rita” post.

        I’ve emailed you separately. Here’s wishing you a beautiful day!

  6. The website got a face-lift. It looks great and well organized. Great Job, Deli. Keep the good work up. That must have been a studious job. Everything looks great. May the Good Lord bless you with peace and joy for your hard work to the community.

    • Thanks, Father Xaviour! And, yes. It took a lot of time, but my pea brain loves challenges… and technology. Say, did you read “Pope Benedict XVI to priests: Go forth and blog” in today’s CC Caller-Times, page 11A? Steven saved it for me this morning ’cause he thought the move from our antiquated website to our more progressive blog was very timely indeed. If you missed reading the article, let me know; and I’ll email it to you. But, yes, blogging is definitely the way to go these days. It’s much more real, since it’s interactive.
