Our Lady of Guadalupe was our final class in the Marian series. A very nice parishioner that wishes to remain nameless lead the class. She did a wonderful job. She brought in the classic Our Lady of Guadalupe film that can also be found on Formed.org. She also graced us with some great handouts and even some pins of our Mother. But, the best thing by far that she shared was the picture of Our Lady of Guadalupe and her zeal for Our Lady.
We have such a blessing in Our Lady, she shows us so much about Jesus that I wouldn't be able to type all of it. But, what we can see that she shows us through her coming to St. Juan Diego is that she loves all of Jesus' people and wants us all to join together in worshiping Him. She reminds us that we are not alone, the Holy Spirit was very active with the Aztec people and the missionaries at the time just need a little course correction to see that Fact. Our Lady provided that nudge, as most good mother do.
As the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe approaches on December 12 and as Advent comes nearer and nearer may we allow ourselves to be nudged closer to Jesus.
