Acordaos, oh piadosísima Virgen María,
que jamás se ha oído decir
que ninguno de los que hayan
acudido a tu protección,
implorando tu asistencia
y reclamando tu socorro,
haya sido abandonado de ti.
Animado con esta confianza,
a ti también acudo, oh Madre,
Virgen de las vírgenes,
y aunque gimiendo
bajo el peso de mis pecados,
me atrevo a comparecer
ante tu presencia soberana.
No deseches mis humildes súplicas,
oh Madre del Verbo divino,
antes bien, escúchalas
y acógelas benignamente. Amén.
With great sadness, but with our eyes fixed on Our Lord Jesus Christ, High and Eternal Priest and on the Blessed Virgin Mary, especially in her invocation of her Fifth Guadalupan apparition, we inform you that after several days of illness due to infection by SARS-Co V-2 (COVID-19) on February 3, Fr. Alejandro Hernández García has been called to the Father’s house. May the Lord have you enjoying his glory and enter to participate in the Celestial Liturgy. His death has surprised us and we mourn the loss of our brother, who, with firm faith, generous priestly dedication and love for the Confraternity, lived and served the Church.
Father Alejandro was born in Córdoba, Veracruz, (Mexico), on July 10, 1972, son of Mr. Joel Hernández Galván and Mrs. Benita García González.

The list of destinations and appointments give an idea of the multiple activities that he carried out with generosity throughout his years of ministry; However, it does not include everything he did for the members of the Confraternity and for the souls entrusted to him: He worked at the request of the Churches in need of Clergy, full availability, sacramental fraternity, obedience in faith and zeal for vocations, proper ends of our Confraternity for the glory and praise of the Triune God.
His testimony and example of filial love for Heavenly Father, love for Our Blessed Mother, especially in her invocation of Guadalupe, and love for the Church as his wife and teacher will remain printed in our memory.
Let us ask our Lord God to keep him enjoying his holy glory. May Father Enrique Amezcua Medina, our founder, intercede for him so that together they may participate in the eternity of the Weddings of the Lamb.
Fr. Lic. José Carlos Collado Paz, regional director for Mexico of the Confraternidad Operarios del Reino de Cristo begs all the brothers, members of the community, to ask and pray for the soul of our brother Fr. Alejandro Hernández García, so that God may grant him eternal rest.
