Since tomorrow is the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, I thought I would share with you four articles that I have written in the past focusing on this great Marian celebration, but before I get to those, let me share some experiences I have had with this Marian shrine and title for Our Lady.
Our Lady of Guadalupe holds a special place in my heart ever since I went on a pilgrimage to Mexico City when I was 17 years old. I had the chance to travel to Mexico with people from my parish at the time. It was great experience. I would love to return now knowing so much more about Our Lady of Guadalupe and St. Juan Diego.
When I was teaching high school theology during my first four years, I had an image, that I still have, that hung in my classroom each year. During the first two years, I planned prayer services that focused on the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe in my classroom. I was able to locate fake roses which we used to surround the image. See the picture below.
In recent years, I dedicated this website/blog to the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe. On the main page, you will see a picture of this Marian image. In my backyard, I also have a white stone statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe. She oversees the entire yard from her placement. I hope to put roses around the statute soon.
