While Our Lady of Guadalupe is especially celebrated in Mexico, she is also the patroness of the Americas. If you wish to know more about her, please click on the title of this post.
I know I mentioned I used to teach in a Polish Church. Did I also mention that the neighborhood was hispanic? We tried to celebrate this feast day at my school reverently, though traditionally was rather impossible since none of the teachers or staff were hispanic. I did learn to love Our Lady of Guadalupe, though. If I ever get a lawn statue of Our Lady, it will be of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
