On December 30, Fr Alvaro Corcuera went to the hospital in Hartfort, CT because he had been suffering from strong headaches. This seems to be the reason why he took a sabbatical. They found an abnormal growth in his brain and are running tests to find out what it is. He may have to undergo surgery, always a very delicate situation. Let´s join in prayer for Fr Alvaro.

Also on December 30, Fr Antonio Izquierdo passed away. He preached the last spiritual exercises I did in the Legion, 30 days in Rome. It was during these exercises that my desire to leave the Legion solidified. He was an excellent professor. He will be missed.
