These emails are called spooling and are done by unknown sources to cause you to respond or send financial assistance to them. The priests will NEVER ask you to do this. When you receive these emails the best thing for you to do is delete them immediately and do not respond in any way. +++++ En los últimos meses, muchos de ustedes han recibido correos electrónicos de los sacerdotes pidiéndoles que respondan para ayudar o pidiendo alguna forma de ayuda financiera. Estos correos son llamados ENCANILLAR y son hechos por fuentes desconocidas para hacer que usted responda o envie el ayudo financiero a ellos. Los sacerdotes NUNCA le pedirán que haga esto. Cuando reciba estos correos electronicos, lo mejor que puede hacer es eliminarlos inmediatamente y no responder de ninguna manera.
