REFLECTION : FEAST OF OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE December 12, 2018)

The Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe is the greatest Marian Shrine in the world. It is based on the apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary four times to St. Juan Diego and one time to his uncle Juan Bernardino from December 9 to 12, 1531. The handwoven mantle of Juan Diego on which the image of Our Lady was supernaturally imprinted as a proof for the local Bishop Zumarraga is still fresh and displayed in the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico. This miraculous and unique image of the Blessed Mother has great communicative value because of its divine origin and symbolic meanings. This image attracted many throughout five centuries and made revolutionary spiritual and social changes in Mexico.

SUNDAY REFLECTION : Announcement about the birth of Christ (December 9, 2018)

After her discussion with Angel Gabriel, Mary expressed her willingness to take up any hardship for her vocation to be the Mother of the Son of God. That was a free-will consent, and not an easy one to decide. Mary had no fore-knowledge of the hardships and the glory to follow. Yet, she gave her consent trusting fully in the Lord, without waiting to consult Joseph, her friends or relatives. Mary was hundred percent committed to her call. She took up the hardships with patience and did her glorious task in humility, starting with her service to Elizabeth.

REFLECTION : FEAST OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION OF OUR LADY (December 8, 2018)

Like Eve, Mary was created free of original sin. Eve brought influence of Satan, sufferings, and death to the world through her disobedience and Mary supported her son Jesus to reverse them through her obedience. By her humble submission to the will of God expressed through Angel Gabriel, Mary took up the responsibility of being the second Eve and cooperated with her son Jesus to redeem the world. Let us join Mary and Jesus to continue their mission through our humble service to humanity and worship to God.
