Our Lady of Guadalupe

 Our Lady of Guadalupe

In 1531, Mother Mary appeared to St. Juan Diego, a poor farmer in Guadalupe, Mexico. She requested for a chapel to be built where she stood. He could not convince his bishop so Mother Mary gave him some roses as a sign. When he showed them to the bishop, a beautiful image of Mother Mary appeared on his cape! After that, great numbers of people believed in Jesus and the miraculously image can still be seen today in Mexico. Her feast day is on December 12.

The Immaculate Conception of Blessed Virgin Mary

 The Immaculate Conception of Blessed Virgin Mary
December 8 
"Today we contemplate the humble girl of Nazareth who, by an extraordinary and ineffable privilege, was preserved from the contagion of original sin and from every fault, so that she could be a worthy dwelling-place for the Incarnate Word. In Mary, the New Eve, Mother of the New Adam, the Father’s original, wondrous plan of love was re-established in an even more wondrous way."
Pope St. John Paul II
