Happy Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe!
What a huge feast this is for the Americas! The Miracle of Guadalupe converted literally millions of Mexicans at the time. This miracle brought roses in the winter and belief to men's hearts... it baffled scientists and still does. It is a miracle which still works in the souls of unbelieving folks throughout the world. May she continue to hold the Americas in her mantle of stars and lead us all closer to her Son.

This is the day when for years, my family and another family got together and cooked a Mexican feast for dinner in celebration, including homemade tortillas and flan.
