Short break for the beginning of Eastertide.  Thanks to all who donated during Lent.  Pray for Una Voce Cuba, and further donations are definitely not prohibited.

Although Una Voce Cuba does not stop needing help, you all have contributed generously during Lent. For now there is a brief hiatus throughout the first part of Eastertide. A better update will follow.

Christus resurrexit, alleluia!

Ladies and Gentlemen,

A longer update:

Although in the passage wherein Our Lord tells the multitude and us by means of a rhetorical question, “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” (KJV, Mk 8:36) that to lose one’s soul by sin for any mere worldly good, no matter how great, is a foolish exchange to our detriment, we need not limit the statement’s scope. For if we were to help our fellow men by alleviating their poverty only by supplying for materials needs and not, in so far as we can, tending to their spiritual ones, we tend to the miniscule, even if it may truly need tending, and ignore the more important deficiency. If compared to an injured body, we, medics, provide a Band-Aid to a small wound but ignore a major abscess. True we cannot be sources of health or of grace “ex opere operato,” but we can anticipate and help the Divine Physician.

Different Catholic associations of the faithful will have different ends, and with this there is no problem. Even will different Catholic charitable groups profitably have different main earthly ends. Those “Catholic” groups already being excluded "prima facie," which have some end that is contrary to the objective moral order or to revealed truth, even Catholic groups, which while not contrary to the good and the true like those indicated at the very beginning of the sentence, however, that for whatever reason only supply material needs and forget entirely to cooperate with the spiritual needs, supplied by the one God through the one Church, have squandered the name Catholic and are indeed a poor investment of time, money, and energy for us laity. Una Voce Cuba has the promotion and spread of the Catholic faith on the island of Cuba in association with the promotion and spread of the traditional Roman rite as its end, but it does have conjoined interest in helping both its members who suffer the most from poverty on the island and the inhabitants of Mena, the third "oratory" location, a little town in the Province of Matanzas.

Hogar Don Bosco is the name of a project by which members of Una Voce Cuba seek to do a more material, although not solely, apostolic work. I am not collecting money for it or other works in Mena to be mentioned also below, and although it may in time become a fully distinct entity from Una Voce Cuba although directed by Una Voce Cuba, I do mention it now and here because of its still extremely close relation to Una Voce Cuba. I tried to place immediately below a digital poster for Hogar Don Bosco and a translation to English below that, but the poster like another photo is placed by the software elsewhere, but surely dear reader you will be able to figure out which is which and where.

“The population of Mena is one of the more than 5,000 of its type among neighborhoods and villages that exist in all of Cuba: without a priest, without a church, without any other Catholic presence. Hundreds of thousands of children, adolescents, and young people lack both material and spiritual bread. These are the existential peripheries of Pope Francis speaks and where he wants us to do good for the love of Christ, our Lord.

Help us to forge a different life for them!

Help us to give back hope to those who are without it.

Let us again paint a smile on their faces…

Be for them: their hero of charity, their angel of gentleness, the face of the good God.

Our foundation, in imitation of St. John Bosco and by means of his intercession and guidance, seeks to guarantee for them: food, clothing, medicines and [true] Catholic education. But without your generous help we cannot advance…

Call, write, and ask for information.

Send today a donation to change their present reality!

In every child: poor, sad, sick, handicapped, Jesus is made present…: “Every time that you did it for one of these, my little ones, you did it for me…” (From the Spanish, Mt 25, 40).

Below is a meal for children and the elderly through Hogar Don Bosco. Same situation as with the digital poster.

A Thank You.

All of You Who Have Donated This Lent and Pre-Lent,

Many thanks. I have sent individual thanks, which you deserved, but I thank all of you in toto because as a group you are sustaining Una Voce Cuba for the months to come. I add two pictures of a possible selection pertaining to all three oratories from the celebration of the Feast of St. Joseph. One is of a procession in his honor. The other is of a pig, from where it was obtained I do not know -- that ignorance on my part and in the update is for the best -- which made the celebratory meal for the people in Mena. If there remain others who might be looking to begin living Lent now, please do invite them to look into giving alms to Una Voce Cuba.

I thank all who have donated, are going to donate small amounts weekly, or have shared the campaign, but I ask one more favor. I do not use social media, but I suspect that some of you do. Please share this opportunity for Lenten Almsgiving through your social media accounts.

Les agradezco a todos quienes han donado, van a donar una suma pequeña semanalmente, o han contado la campaña, pero les pido un favor más. No uso media social, pero supongo que unos de ustedes sí la usan. Por favor, contaran esta oportunidad de dar limosnas cuaresmales por sus cuentas de media social.
