One of the great Marian feasts of the year is coming....
...Our Lady of Guadalupe, December 12.
When the Spanish explorers arrived in Mexico, they were faced with many challenges.
By far the most shocking was human sacrifice and witchcraft. The Devil really had his grip on the Mexican Indians… big time.
So Our Lady came. The task was obviously big enough for her direct intervention.
If you have a moment to read the story of Our Lady of Guadalupe yourself, you will see what I am talking about.
The devil was in control. Our Lady came, and the natives of Mexico embraced the Catholic Faith.
Since 1531, the year of Our Lady's apparition at Guadalupe, Mexico has been through a lot, including persecution against the Church… but Our Lady of
Guadalupe is still there and every Mexican looks to her as their Mother.
So please mark your calendar to honor this great Feast day, and begin the Novena to Our Lady of Guadalupe, today!

For me, the apparitions of Our Lady of Guadalupe hold special importance because as you know, She is the Patroness of the Americas. And here in America, we really need something like this to happen.
Please join me in this Novena. Pray for yourself, your family, and pray especially for America.
