"I was on peritoneal dialysis every night for 9 hours during a period of 4 years minus a month. Thanks to three possible donors, my hope was sustained. Although none of the three donors panned out (because my blood would not interact with theirs in the final analysis), I nonetheless continued to harbor the hope of a transplant because I trusted that the Blessed Mother would ultimately be victorious in this matter."
- Fr. Hector Vega
My Queen, My Mother, I give myself entirely to you, and to show my devotion to you, I consecrate to you this day my eyes, my ears, my mouth, my heart, my entire self without reserve. As I am your own, my good Mother, guard me and defend me as your property and possession. Amen
