"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, Virgin of the Apocalypse.

And a great sign appeared ...

Our Lady of Guadalupe

“When the image of the Virgin appeared on the tilma of Juan Diego, it was the prophecy of an embrace: Mary’s embrace of all the peoples of the vast expanses of America – the peoples who already lived there, and those who were yet to come. Mary’s embrace showed what America – North and South – is called to be: a land where different peoples come together; a land prepared to accept human life at every stage, from the mother’s womb to old age; a land which welcomes immigrants, and the poor and the marginalized, in every age. 
A land of generosity." - Pope Francis 2013

Just think, Our Lady appeared as the Great Sign in the Americas - what does it mean for our times?


  1. One of my patient's caregivers watched the midnight Mass in honor of the Morenita live from the Los Angeles Archdiocese Cathedral. The church was packed to overflowing.

    Viva Cristo Rey!

    Viva la Virgen de Guadalupe!

    Viva San Juan Diego!
