    Father TJ,

    You my man are truly a Saint. I have said this before and will always say this about you. For all you’re doing for these children of need is the ultimate “Miracle”.

    If the Lord delights in man’s way, he makes his steps firm; though he stumble he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand. Psalm 37:23-24

    May our paths cross again,

    I sent you an email once before but think it may have gone into cyberspace? Want you to know that I think of you daily….usually at night when I say my prayers and you are at the top of my list. Wishing and sending only good thoughts your way.

    Also, I need to find out how to get an orange bracelet to wear… the message and the fashion, it will be great with my red glasses!!! Love n prayers your way, Roz

    John 11:4

    When Jesus heard this he said, “This illness is not to end in death,* but is for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified through it.”

    Our prayers continue for Fr. TJ.

    Viva Cristo Rey!!

    Happy Anniversary on your ordination to the priesthood. You are so blessed because you were chosen by God to serve him and all of us. Such an energetic, charismatic, caring and loving person. Thank you for all that you have done and what you will continue to do. May our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, continue to hold you in the palm of His hand.

    “Lord, look upon Fr. T. J. Martinez with eyes of mercy, may Your healing hand rest upon him, may Your life giving powers flow into every cell of his body and into the depths of his soul, cleansing, purifying, restoring him to wholeness and strength for service in Your Kingdom”. Amen.

    TJ, we know how much you love your “history-making” moments, so we took a picture showing off our “Team Father TJ” bracelets at George Strait’s final concert — the largest crowd for an indoor concert in North American history. We’re always thinking of you!

    Much love,

    You are in my prayers. ….

  32. Sue Chambers June 1, 2014 at 12:41 pm #

    Dear Fr. Martinez,
    Sometimes there are no reasons for what happens that we as humans can understand. The plan of God is perfect and there is true joy in the resurrection. As we each move through our own journey to God we are called to find HIm in all things. You are an amazing example of someone who has used God’s gifts to help make the world a better place for others. Now those you have touched have a chance to give back in prayer. My prayer is for the will of God to prevail. May God bless you with strength and may you be comforted by His great love. May the Blessed Mother bring you comfort and watch over you. When there are no answers and life doesn’t make sense, there is God…. this is the essence of faith. May you trust in HIs perfect plan. God bless you and your family.

    Hey Father TJ!

    Had a “chance meeting” with Angelo…a well spoken young man and a current Sophmore at Cristo Rey Jesuit.
    He was at St. Dominic’s in the gift shop visiting with a Religious Sister volunteer worker and a resident. I had heard of Cristo Rey…and asked Angelo, “Why Cristo Rey?” The answer was something like, Well really my Mom was mostly the reason, but that I wanted it too! Invited this sweet soul to truly consider a vocation to the Priesthood and to really pray about it…he is a keeper! Of course they all are! lol

    He told us about you…so here we meet by email. Please know that we carry you with us and are praying for you. We will pass the word to all we know! Praying Jesus continuously showers His gifts of the Holy Spirit upon you and keeps you overflowing with His grace…great to know of your infectious excitement for God! It glows from one of your students named Angelo! Hugs, love and prayers Penny Yost, Spiritual Family/Vocation Team member, St. Edward Catholic Community, Spring, TX

    Father TJ, I only know you through your father but I feel that I know you well. I have traveled with the mayor and he is always talking about you! My prayers are with you, stay strong knowing that miracles are real.

    God bless

    Dear Father TJ,
    I’m blowin’ up Miquel Pro’s eyephone with prayers for your healing, as I can’t imagine that you can do better work there than here. God bless you with strength and hope. Chicken nuggets are a very good sign!

    The last time I saw you (I think) you were saying Mass at St. Agnes for some reason. I remember it was beautiful. I am so very sorry to hear you are so sick, and I don’t at all understand it. I DO understand your pride in your graduates, and I am very excited about that. Blessings, blessings on them, their teachers, and all the Cristo Rey community.

    The Nugent family stands ready to help in any way we can. Please know you will be the focus of our prayer this summer. Prayers are flowing your way, a candle even now glowing in our fireplace.

    Hastily, hopefully, love-fully,
    Mary Flood Nugent
    BC ’79 JVC ’79-’80 MOM ever since

    (I’ll send a photo of all 8 of us in wristbands as soon as I get them!)
