Mass for Our Lady of Guadalupe

7pm at St. Leo

Our Lady of Guadalupe is the patroness of all the Americas, and so we of many nations join together today in looking to her as a unifying figure for all the cultures represented in this hemisphere.

Indeed, the Virgin’s appearance to Juan Diego, preserved on the inside of his cloak, shows her as a mestiza, a woman of mixed race, with both indigenous and Spanish features.

May we look to her as we work to bring unity to our divisions and healing and reconciliation to all the peoples of this new world.
