|Women of Faith at the Los Angeles Sports Arena.|
March 21, 2011. Los Angeles, CA. Over 20,000 women attended
the Women of Faith Congress at the Los Angeles Sports
Arena this past February 5th and 6th. The Congress, organized
with the help of over 400 Hombre Nuevo and Guadalupe
Radio volunteers, was based on the theme: “Woman, your faith
will move mountains.”
Some of the speakers at the event included
Fr Juan Rivas, LC, on “A Woman Who Moves Mountains”;
Fr Antonio Rivero, LC, on “Woman of Faith, Dare to
Live the Commandments at Home”; Fr Chelo, who spoke on
“Courage, Woman: Jesus Came to Save You”; and Dr Cesar
Lozano, who spoke on “Difficult Women, Complicated Men.” In addition,
the journalist and author Maria Antonieta Collins spoke about courage
and self-improvement to the crowd of women at the event.
The musicians Gela and Priscila shared their testimonies and talents,
which they use to evangelize. There were opportunities for personal
counseling and sacramental confession, and the event also included Mass
and Eucharistic adoration, which was enlivened by the “Orquestra Renacer”
(Rebirth Choir), which accompanies Fr Chelo to different events, bringing
a message of healing and conversion.
Just as Moses’ face shone
after his mountaintop experience with God, some women left the
congress with their own particular glow. One woman said that
she went to a store after the congress and the
sales clerk who rang up her purchases said that she
looked very happy and full of peace. The woman explained
that she had just been in a meeting with God.
The sales clerk said, “Well, give me that God’s phone
number because I want to have that peace, too.”
