"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.

Papa e Presidente ...

"I am ready to travel around this beautiful and wide country as a missionary and as a pilgrim who wishes to renew with all of you the experience of mercy as a new horizon of opportunity which inevitably brings justice and peace. I also entrust myself to the gaze of Mary, the Blessed Virgin of Guadalupe, so that by her intercession, the merciful Father may grant that these days and the future of this land be an opportunity for encounter, unity and peace. Thank you." - Pope Francis,  VR

He also spoke of the beautiful "indigenous, mestizo and criollo cultures" - so beloved by Our Lady, she came at the very first, just for them.

May Our Lady show herself his mother, may she look upon him and give success to his Apostolic mission.

Dios te salve, Maria.
Llena eres de gracia:
El Señor es contigo.
Bendita tú ere entre todas las mujeres.
Y bendito es el fruto de tu vientre:
Santa María, Madre de Dios,
ruega por nosotros pecadores,
ahora y en la hora de nuestra muerte.


  1. I like how la Virgen de Guadalupe first addressed San Juan Diego ... "Juan Diegito." Such sweetness and tenderness to remember brings tears to my eyes. I am so happy Papa is in Mexico to visit La Morenita's children who are so much in need of the Lord's tenderness.

    If they have forgotten how much our Lady loves them may they now, by God's holy will, remember in the great witness of our beloved Holy Father, Francisco.

    Viva Cristo Rey!

    Viva la Virgen Morena de Guadalupe!


    1. Listen closely to the first reading from Sunday's Mass - it made me think of the Holy Father in Mexico.

      I'm so happy he made this visit!
