Patroness Of The Americas

Happy Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe!
+How special this year on 12-12-12+
Some of you may have seen this crafty idea from Domestic Church...I have admired it for years!  This year, we finally planned for it and pulled it off:)
It really is very easy and the beautiful image is printable over at their site with simple instructions and visual aids. (Mandatory for this Mom;)
I'm definitely saving these...Handy for All Saint's Day!
This year, the kids will be wearing them for our Parish Procession:) {Minus our tween who was not thrilled about donning a tilma}  I am enjoy my little ones, who are good sports for now;-)
This feast day is always a mandatory celebration at our house due to a special love I have for Our Lady of Guadalupe, who led me on the path to forgiving a {seemingly} unforgivable crime.  A pilgrimage to Mexico City was the culmination of such grace outpoured... 
I've never written about this particular journey here but the Holy Spirit saw fit that another writer connect to it through my pilgrimage post. Tim Drake wrote a beautiful article and  it's featured in this month's Catholic Digest:)  All glory and honor to God, through His most holy Mother!
If you happen to read it, let me know what you think!
*Feast day blessings to all*

  5. I really must subscribe to Catholic Digest (and get a copy of the article!) What blessing to make a pilgrimage to Tepayec Hill in Mexico City and see the beautiful image of Our Lady in person ! It's on my list. Merry Christmas Tiffany.
