Diaconal Ordination of Edgar Alejandro Salgado Tapia, CMF at Mexico City

Jan 26, 2021 | México, MICLA, Ordinations

Mexico City, Mexico. On Saturday, January 23, the Province of Mexico, in the church of St. Anthony Mary Claret, joyfully celebrated the diaconate ordination of the missionary Edgar Alejandro Salgado Tapia, CMF.

The ordination was presided over by Bishop Héctor Mario Pérez Villareal, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Mexico. The bishop in his homily reminded Edgar Alejandro of the gift of the diaconate:

“Today that you are approaching not only to receive a new service within the Church, it is not just another task, it is the Spirit of the Lord […] When you were baptized, you received the Spirit of God; when you were confirmed you received the Spirit of God to fulfill his mission on earth […]”.

Monsignor Perez Villareal also highlighted the characteristic features of the sacred order already mentioned in the liturgy of the Word, the gift and grace that Edgar receives and that also concerns all the People of God:

“[…] And today you once again receive that Spirit, with a very singular character, the Sacrament of the Diaconate confers on you the Spirit of God who identifies you with Christ the Servant. You have the responsibility to live fully because you will never leave the diaconate, the experience of identifying yourself with Christ the Servant […] Do what the Lord expects of you, be a just man, act with righteousness, and learn to love with fidelity […] Walk with God; live all your history as Salvation History […] Christ in the center, it is He who walks with you, with all the Claretian Family […]”.

At the end of the Eucharist, Fr. Enrique Mascorro López, CMF, Major Superior of the Province of Mexico, thanked the Bishop and the brothers and sisters present. The newly ordained deacon also thanked God, the Claretian Family, his mother and father and the few family members and friends who were able to attend due to the circumstances of the pandemic. He also thanked those who connected through the networks to accompany him and pray for his dedication and following of Christ in the Claretian Family and at the service of the Church.
