Anyone that visits my website/blog on a regular basis is probably aware that I have a pretty big devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe, most notably because this site is dedicated to Our Lady of Guadalupe (OLG). Ever since visiting the shrine in Mexico City when I was 17 years old, I have always found myself wanting to learn more and more about this Marian Apparition. Last year when I proposed to my now wife, I did it in front of the OLG statue in the backyard.
I have written a total of 6 times, including today’s post, on this particular Marian feast day, which is not only celebrated in the country of Mexico, but also in other parts of North and South America. Today’s post isn’t about the feast, but more about the socks that I am wearing today, which happen to be Our Lady of Guadalupe socks from Sock Religious.
Recently, I have become aware of a Catholic company in Indiana that sells Catholic socks. As a man who loves crazy, fun, and colorful socks, I found the socks that represent my Catholic faith to be very appealing. My sock drawer is filled with many different pairs of socks and starting to fill up with Catholic socks from Sock Religious. About a month ago or so, the aforementioned company released the Our Lady of Guadalupe Socks – once I saw them, I wanted them for sure. I also have a pair of St. John Paul II and St. Joseph. To purchase these socks and other pairs, click here.
So, for today’s Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, I am wearing Sock Religious’ Our Lady of Guadalupe Socks. If you read this post and know me from the parish (that’s the one place I will be today), you can walk up and check out these socks for yourself.
