“Where there is sadness, let me sow joy.”

Earlier this month the sister of a good friend of ours was murdered in her home outside of Cuernavaca. Graciela was a simple woman with a tender heart.  She loved music, poetry, and cooking. She also loved spending time with her nieces and nephews. We trust she is now resting in the peace of God.

To bring some good out of this tragedy, we have created the Graciela Fund. She could not bear to see children suffer, so this fund established in her memory will be used to alleviate the suffering of children who live in extreme poverty.  To make a donation, click on “How to help” in the box above and follow the instructions.  Include a note that your donation is for the Graciela Fund. For online donations, type “Cuernavaca Graciela Fund” in the comments section. Every penny of your donation will go to the Graciela Fund. Together we can put into practice the words of the Prayer of St. Francis: “Where there is hatred, let us sow love; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.”
