Fr. Fernando Suarez was our spiritual director and friend. Lee Anne was his spiritual mother.
He was the example par excellence of a priest like Jesus. Though he was specifically chosen by God for a unique and powerful healing ministry, he was the first to point out that "I am only the instrument; Jesus heals you." He preached and taught that all of us have a mission in life, and although he welcomed us into his ministry family, he charged us to continue serving the Lord through this ministry, and blessed Mary's House.
He traveled extensively throughout the world giving Healing Masses, preaching retreats and helping the hopeless, the poorest of the poor through feeding programs and much more. He was special, and we miss him dearly...and yet, people continue to be healed through his intercession.
"And therefore we also having so great a cloud of witnesses over our head, laying aside every weight and sin which surrounds us, let us run by patience to the fight proposed to us." (Hebrews 12:1)
He witnessed the importance and power of intimacy with Jesus, living his life and ministry from "the secret place."
