Our Lady of Guadalupe

Isaiah 40:1-11; Psalm 96; Matthew 18:12-14.

Be not afraid

Though it is not a major feast in this part of the world, the Virgin of Guadalupe is highly venerated throughout the Americas and the Philippines on this day. She appeared to Juan Diego as a pregnant young woman. What must it have been like for Mary just a few days before the birth of her son? Uncomfortable? Worried? But she would have also been full of joy and courage as she continued to trust in the words of the angel –“Mary, do not be afraid.” Let’s hear that message in our own lives – do not be afraid.
