Advent Meditation on the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe
Gospel Luke 1: 39 -45
The feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe is truly Mary who shows her presence. This enables us to understand that in our Christian life, Christ’s presence and Mary’s presence are primary and come before any spoken words. A mother is a silent presence, a presence that will help her children sleep peacefully, trustingly…a presence of love, of warmth for the heart, so that we might truly be in her hands, asking her to carry us and to teach us this evangelical way of littleness, which will allow us to obey just as a child obeys his mother.
