Cases first orders four new priests in the Canary Islands – La Provincia

The Cathedral of Santa Ana hosted yesterday the act of ordination of four new presbyters by Bishop Francisco Cases. The new priests are Jonathan José Almeida Romero, Inocencio García Ramírez, Jonathan Ravelo Cruz and Gerardo Valbuena Aboid. The ceremony, officiated by Bishop Francisco Cases, had hundreds of priests and a large presence of faithful who packed the temple of Santa Ana. "I have never ordained four priests at the same time", so that ceremony "gives me a special joy, "Cases said in statements to Radio Tamaraceite October 9th. But, on the other hand Cases clarified that "I am sorry to leave only five in the seminary." The bishop recalled that there is a fact that makes him sad, and it is "that sometimes these brakes to the priestly vocation come from the families of the young," he added.
