The Second Saturday of Advent-The Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe

Listen to the podcast.

What can I say about today that I didn’t just say Wednesday?  On December 9 we recognize the saint that the Blessed Mother visited.  Today we celebrate the visit itself.

Maybe the best way to deal with today’s feast is to meditate on a couple of questions.

  1. Why did Mary choose to appear to a poor native in 1531?
  2. Why hasn’t she come back to the Americas?

I’m going to take the easy way out here and let you come up with your own answers.  Take some time today to sit quietly and reflect on Mary’s visit and her lack of a return.  If you find the answer, please share it with the rest of us.

Peace
