"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Our Lady of Guadalupe ... and discernment ... of apparitions ...



The signs.

1) Our Lady instructed St. Juan Diego to take her requests to the Bishop.

2) The Bishop didn't believe the apparition was authentic.

3) Obedient to the Bishop, the Blessed Virgin, rather than excoriating the Bishop's lack of credulity, sent him a sign ... a "Great Sign" in fact.

4) The Bishop came to believe and millions were converted to the True Faith.

5) A "permanent sign" remains to testify to the events.  The inexplicable preservation of the tilma itself is considered miraculous.

Happy feast day to all!
  (Especially Yaya!)
