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.
She is a testimony to her parents’ love and faith, even though they’d, whoops, not yet received the Sacrament of Matrimony. Catechesis can be very vague in Mexico, and they may have believed the government registration was all the “marriage” they needed. Our Deacon Rafael regularly talks about the need for a sacramental marriage, even if a couple were legally married in their home country, and we have weddings for long-married couples several times a year.
How beautiful that their daughter led her parents to this tremendous grace.
