Happy Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe! Today we celebrated by waking up really early (I mean early…really) and heading off to the church for a huge celebration. It was good, but needless to say it has left me tired. I loved seeing the devotion to Mary under this title. It is one that I have never really heard of much until the past few years.
There was a modern-day picture of our Lady of Guadalupe in my archdiocesian newspaper, so I played around with it and here it is. I find it really beautiful.
It is really beautiful and colorful. It portrays such a different perspective. Here is a quote from Our Lady of Guadalupe
“Do not be troubled or weighed down with grief. Do not fear any illness or vexation, anxiety or pain. Am I not here who am your mother? Are you not under my shadow and protection? Am I not the Fountain of Life? Are you not in the folds of my mantle, in the crossing of my arms? Is there anything else you need?” -Our Lady of Guadalupe to St. Juan Diego on December 12, 1531
