Advent Reflection – Day 14 – The Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe

“My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord;
my spirit rejoices in God my savior.”  Lk 1:47

On this day we celebrate Mary – Our Lady of Guadalupe.  We recall the miraculous vision of Mary to Juan Diego who delivers the message to the local Bishop that a church should be built.  The bishop does not believe Juan until he presents the gift of roses wrapped in his cloak which, when opened, revealed the image of the Blessed Mother known as Our Lady of Guadalupe.  Because of this event, many of the people came to believe in Christian faith.

With Mary we “proclaim the greatness of the Lord” who comes to save all people.  May there be an end to racism, hatred, and fear.  Amen
