Our Lady of Guadalupe is among my favorite titles for Mary. And though my circumstances prevent me from sharing very much here, I do have a few things you may like…
My favorite quote from this apparition:
“Let not your heart be disturbed. Do not fear that sickness, nor any other sickness or anguish. Am I not here, who am your Mother? Are you not under my protection? Am I not your health? Are you not happily within my fold? What else do you wish? Do not grieve nor be disturbed by anything.”
(Words of Our Lady to Juan Diego)
You can watch a short video reflection about the feast day here — look for today’s date!
Unrelated to Guadalupe, but now my favorite new Mary-related quote from Francis’ latest apostolic exhortation:
She is the friend who is ever concerned that wine not be lacking in our lives.
(See Evangelii Gaudium, par. 286 )
And in case you don’t get the joke — or more importantly the catechesis — from Francis, see John 2, or the Second Luminous Mystery of the Rosary, or let Dr Ed Sri explain it all for you.
From my Patheos archives, a cool post by Maria Johnson.
From the Among Women archives, going back a few years to Among Women 37: my Blessed are They segment features details about Our Lady of Guadalupe, and the “Among Women” segment features a little Christmas miracle that took place in a little boy’s life… one of my friend’s who will forever be “God’s Will” to me.
