Thoughts on marriage
The love of marriage involves fidelity, responsibility for the other, care for the couple, attention to details, freshness in the treatment, sincerity and truth to every test; knowing to forgive and ask for forgiveness; accepting the other as he is and not as I want him to be; implies renouncing oneself, submission to another, selflessness, affection, sacrifice, tenderness. Now this is true love! Not what the current world sells me.
El amor del matrimonio implica fidelidad, responsabilidad por el otro, cuidado de la pareja, atención a los detalles, frescura en el trato, sinceridad y verdad a toda prueba; saber perdonar y pedir perdón; acoger al otro como es y no como yo quiero que sea; implica renuncia a sí mismo, entrega al otro, desinterés, cariño, sacrificio, ternura. ¡Éste es amor verdadero! No lo que me vende el mundo actual.
I was born in Caracas Venezuela on October 15, 1967, the youngest of four brothers. I have a Bachelor in accounting, am a CPA and have a Masters Degree in Finance Management. At the age of 25, I married Angela Scutaro. We have two beautiful children, Fabiana 23 and Angel 16. In November of this year I will Become “Grandpa”. I am an entrepreneur and business owner. I came to the US in 2000 and in 2003 Started in the Parcel Service Business which I currently still own with more than 25 routes in the Las Vegas area.
In 2012, I started in the Episcopal Church serving in several ministries as lector, Eucharist Minister, catechist, and leader of the Latino services. Through service to our neighbors, the poor, the needy and the sick and by the grace of God, I received the call to serve God. In 2016, I was ordained as transitional deacon and in 2017 became the first Latino priest trained and ordained in the diocese of Nevada.
I am the celebrant at the 11:30 and 1:00 services at All Saints. I serve our community as a volunteer chaplain at Sunrise Hospital. I am also the Treasurer of the Dioceses. As a faith leader, I provide guidance and hope to those who seek help and I am dedicated to families through marriage and youth counseling.
