Our Lady of Guadalupe

Today is a Grand Feast Day for all of us in the Americas and the Philippines.

Almost 500 years ago today, Our Blessed Mother came to a simple, humble Indigenous Man named Cuauhtlatoatzin, which can be translated to something along the lines of “speaking eagle” or “he who speaks like an eagle” after being baptized about 6 years before the Marian Apparition, he received the Christian name of Juan Diego.

Juan Diego’s Feast Day is December 9th, the day of the first of the Apparitions.

St. Juan Diego was Canonized only 10 years ago at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe by Blessed John Paul II.

Though I missed posting on his day, you can find a brief post about him here.

Today, as I started out, is a Grand Day, or was a Grand Morning at the Basilica.

Though this video is not of today, one must wait for the news sources and people to upload,  😦

It does give a Feel for what occurred as is happening in México today.

What a phenomenal image, isn’t it?  And who best to associate this than with Our Lord’s Mother, Our Mother?

Que Viva La Virgen Morena!

You can find more information on her from a previous post here.

May she keep her eyes, as she has until now, always upon us, interceding for us, unworthy as we are ♥
