We are very sad to inform…

2016-10-02-PHOTO-00001300We are very sad to inform you that our beloved and dear friend Father Vincent Hughes, the representative of Betania IV, in Los Angeles, USA surrendered his soul into the hands of our Heavenly Father on September 26, 2016.

Father Hughes loved and tirelessly served the Holy Mother Church, spared no time and dedication to spiritually guide hundreds of souls towards the Lord, and was a faithful disseminator and follower of the message of reconciliation of Our Lady of Betania, and true friend of the Servant of God Maria Esperanza Medrano Bianchini.

The Bianchini family and members of the Betania Spirituality Movement will never forget his beautiful words during one of the Masses celebrated by him in Caracas, Venezuela, on August 9, 2008: “The Lord called Maria Esperanza since she was a child, and God told her: ‘Come and follow me.’ And yes, she lived a natural life; but supernatural at the same time. She followed this light and this light turned her into a mystic, a woman of faith united to Christ, united to the Blessed Mother, constantly following the path of faith which opened to her the Kingdom; but she already experienced the Kingdom here on earth. She was not afraid to be an evangelizer, she was not afraid to read our souls, she was not afraid to challenge us, but above all she loved us and loved all those who approached her.”

We are infinitely grateful for his invaluable contribution as a priest, friend and representative of Betania IV. His love of God and joyful spirit will remain in the memory of all those who had the grace of knowing him. His example will continue to be an inspiration and motivation for us and generations to come.

Thank you for everything, Father Vincent Hughes!
