[13] I met Vivian for the first time at St. Dunstan’s Parish in Millbrae on June 30, 1991, when at the invitation of Fr. Al Furtado, CSSP, I was participating in the celebrations organized by the Goan Community in the San Francisco Bay Area. I was one of the concelebrants at the altar with Archbishop Raul Gonsalves of Goa who had ordained me at Our Lady of the Rosary Church in Navelim, Goa, on December 21, 1977.

[15] Independent Catholics and Priests belong to and are affiliated with churches or groups led by Independent Bishops. These groups identify with the Catholic tradition and their Bishops have apostolic succession. The Independent Catholics are generally not in communion with the Roman Catholic Church. Their sacraments are valid and may or may not be recognized by other Christian or Catholic Churches.

[16] Wounded healer is a term created by psychologist Carl Jung. Research has shown that 3 out of 4 counselors and psychotherapists have experienced one or more wounding experiences leading to their career choice. The Wounded Healer is the title of a hope-filled book by Henry Nouwen that I read many years ago. Fr. Nouwen spoke directly to those men and women who want to be of service in their church or community, but have found the traditional ways often threatening and ineffective.
