I would like to thank you for visiting my website. I pray that you will find the information useful for you and your loved ones. God's Love shines through daily in the miracles of life. I believe God's miracles and His beauty are in our souls and are projected to others. That's why I named my practice and products Bella Milagros, "Beautiful Miracles." The following images are special to me and I share them with you with conviction in God's miracles and beauty.

A Personal Note: Daily I receive calls from my patients for reduction of their outstanding accounts, and from charitable organizations requesting donations of money or my services and goods. These last few years have been very hard on all of us economically. I understand this since I am not immune to the recession and its personal effect. This is not the problem that motivates me to write herein. The problem is that our brothers and sisters in Christ are losing their faith in God. How many of us easily blame our woes on God and just as quickly forget to pray in thanksgiving when our lives are florishing? I pray daily that those who have lost their jobs, or can no longer feed their families find means of employment that will satisfy their economic and spiritual needs. Let us love God, our family, and find peace in our work. This is the answer to the recession. I offer the following links to you for personal reflection in these multifactorial troubled times: The Sanctifying Value of Our Work and The Daily Readings
