Saturday, second week of Advent (Our Lady of Guadalupe)

December 12, 2015


Blessed Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe!


In case you missed it when we honored St. Juan Diego, the short version of the story
can be found here.

And the words of Our Lady, taken from the original Aztec account,
kindly offered by the monks of Our Lady of Guadalupe Abbey can also be found here.

Since Our Lady of Guadalupe is Patroness of the Americas,
the readings today are specific for the feast for us:

Zechariah 2:14-17 (God is coming to dwell among us)
OR: Revelation 11:19, 12:1-6, 10 (the ark of the covenant: a woman clothed with the sun)
Judith 15:9, 13:18, 19 “You are the highest honor of our race”
+ Luke 1:26-38 (the Annunciation)
OR: + Luke 1:39-45 (the Visitation)

The Lord stirs
from His holy dwelling
to make His home
with me

within a woman
crowned with stars
who wears the sun,
treads down
the moon;

my spirit leaps!

in ecstasy.

Do I rejoice at the visitation of Mary and her Son as did St. Elizabeth and her son?
Would the Holy One be at home with me in my daily life?
