Roses in December

Our Lady of Guadalupe. 

Image via Wikipedia

Last Saturday, our parish celebrated the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe at the 5:00 Liturgy. This beautiful feast commemorates the appearance of Mary as a peasant woman who speaks to Juan Diego and asks for a church to be built on the very spot where she has appeared to Juan Diego. When he goes to the Bishop with the request, the Bishop asks for a sign. Juan Diego returns to the spot, Mary appears once again and tells him to gather roses to bring to the Bishop. Poor Juan is confused because he doesn't see roses; these flowers are not still growing in December. As he looks around, he sees beautiful roses which he puts into his cloak or serape and goes to see the Bishop. When Juan Diego opens his serape, the Bishop is more than astonished! The roses are beautiful, but more miraculous is the image of Mary on his cloak. This serape is displayed in the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe outside Mexico City. Hundreds of pilgrims visit the shrine daily asking for Mary's blessings.


On Monday, Father Juan, our pastor sent the many roses which decorated our church to our children so that they could honor their mothers or fathers. These photos show the beautiful roses and the beautiful smiles of our grateful children!!


May Mary continue to bless our parish, our school and all the people of God!!

Preparing for Christmas

The time of Advent is a time for waiting, for hoping, for believing. We know that Jesus was born to poor parents at a time of Roman rule, living under difficult circumstances. Jesus is our hope: Jesus overcame the darkness of his time with the light of goodness and love.

During Advent, we try to slow down and remember what is really important: our faith, our family, praying and assisting those in need. We have been blessed with such goodness; we need to remember to share this goodness with others.


The photos below show our bulletin board with the Jesse Tree, the children we honor in December and January the value of the month for December and a special saint whose feast is Dec. 9: St. Juan Diego of Mexico.
