“I have great hopes in your love for Christ and for men. There is a great deal to be done. Let us set out with renewed enthusiasm; united with Christ, under the motherly gaze of the Virgin, Our Lady of Guadalupe the sweet mother of priests and religious.”
-Saint John Paul II
IN THE SAME SPIRIT AS OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE WE WELCOME ALL TO OUR PARISH.
The facet of Guadalupe has been aptly summarized by William B. Taylor:
"The story of the apparition in 1531, just ten years after the Aztec capital at Tenochtitlan fell to Cortes, is rich in providential possibilities - a dark - complected Virgin Mary appears to a lowly Indian at Tepeyac, the sacred place of a pre-Columbian mother goddess, leaving her beautiful image on the Indian's cloak. Then, in a spontaneous surge of Indian devotion, natives flock to the site of the miracle, embracing her image in their spiritual orphanhood as if she were a new mother restoring order in the supernatural world as well as in the here and now. She combines the Indian past with the Spanish present to make something new, a proto-Mexican Indian Madonna who will gradually be accepted as will by American Spaniards and Metizos as their own, thus forming the spiritual basis of a national independence movement in the early 19th century."
