I’m sure the Make-a-Wish Foundation was not required for any of the sacraments, but simply funded the externals for the celebration. Perhaps there were also travel costs involved.
Often, Mexican couples have been married legally in Mexico, but have never had a church wedding. Sometimes it hasn’t been possible for them: the Church is spread thinly in the poor parts of Mexico, and there is a lot of coming and going in the lives of migrant families. Also, they do like to celebrate grandly. If an extended family lives in the same place, they all save up and contribute together for weddings, baptisms, and other celebrations.
I’m very pleased for all of them.
When asked what she would like instead, Bethzy said she wanted to receive Communion and to see her parents, Jose and Mirta, get married in the Church.
Totally selfless wish! As Ronaldus Magnus already noted:
What a beautiful little girl, and what a holy wish for a six year old girl to make! She is truly a blessing from God for everyone around her.
May our Lord continue to bless this child on her journey. In this world of darkness, she has brought light to her family and, by virtue of her story, to us as well.
