He was my Bishop, he ordained me as an Episcopal Priest. We separated from each other in 1972, I was sent to seminary to become his replacement in Nicaragua. It did not happen, it did not work. But I kept him always in my heart as a man of God, a very humble man, a Bishop like those who come once in a God’s own time. I loved him I thank God for him. I will see him in heaven and ask him to forgive him for dissapointing him. The Rev. Dr.William Muniz D.Psy., M.A., M.Div.Catholic Priest.
