Update from Jose Norat-Rodriguez:
Yesterday, I was able to have a pastoral conversation with Mario Morales. Although the process is irreversible, Iris’ movement toward the end of her earthly life has been very slow until now. There is no doubt that Mario is exhausted both mentally and emotionally. It is important that we continue to pray for him and for Benjamin and Mario Jr. Also, Iris’ sister and her husband have been very supportive throughout all this. Also, we are praying for them at this difficult time. This beloved family has been taking turns around the clock to be with Iris Morales. Mario said that Iris has been peaceful which we know is only a prelude to what she will have in the eternal presence of God. As the psalmist said in Psalm 16:11: “You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence with eternal pleasures at your right hand."
