2017 November One More Thing

On This Thanksgiving Day

We thank the Almighty everyday,
For all the blessings that come our way.
For the sun that keeps us tan and warm,
For His angels who shield us from harm.

For Earth, our home in the Universe,
Which to us all like a mother cares;
With her valleys, streams, mountains and seas,
With her fowls and fish and plants and trees.

For our dearest families and friends,
For the joys and love each other brings,
For the gracious foods on our tables,
For the cows and horses on our stables.

For all these blessings and many more,
Forever we are all thankful for.
All the paper in the universes,
Will not suffice to write our praises.

This year, we thank God especially,
For each member of the Filii.
With Epistoliorum on the way,
May he make us closer every day.

Peter Nunez
"Fray Peter" heeded the call to the priesthood right after high school. Upon completion of his temporary vows of poverty, chastity and obedience in the Order of Preachers (Dominicans), he realized he had a different calling and so he ventured out into the world. At first, he made a lot of mistakes from which he learned. In 1992, he joined his wife Alicia in the U.S. They were blessed with two fine sons, Stephen and Michael and “adopted” two wonderful daughters Pau and Joni. From them, he has 4 grandchildren. He started his professional life in the U.S. as a part-time teller and after 6 years was promoted to Branch Manager of the Bank of New York in their two branches in New Jersey. He also joined the North Fork Bank as Branch Manager with the title of Assistant Vice-President. He was a member of the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD) which authorized him to sell various investment products. As a side hustle, Peter is working on his photography skills and has co-founded "The Traveling Chefs." Peter enjoys reading, writing, cooking, travel, golf, photography and triathlon.
