Bienvenidos!

We get very little notice they are coming.

The door opens and someone cries out, “Families! The families are here!” And all of the volunteers and staff from Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley rush to the front of the parish hall to greet them and begin to applaud.

This evening, a young woman carrying her baby, about 8 months old, was among the first of the Central Americans to enter the Humanitarian Respite Center at Sacred Heart Church – McAllen, TX.

As I exclaimed, “Bienvenidos!” our eyes met, and we smiled. Each mothers. We opened up our arms to each other, kissed, embraced, and held one another for a moment. ❤

“So faith, hope and love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”
~ 1 Corinthians 13:13
