Morning Offering to Our Lady of Guadalupe
Immaculate Heart of Mary, Heart of my Mother, Our Lady of Guadalupe, I unite to thy purity, thy sanctity, thy zeal and thy love, all my thoughts, words, acts, and sufferings this day, that there may be nothing in me that does not become through thee, a pleasure to Jesus, a gain to souls, and an act of reparation for the offenses against thy Heart.

This year my husband pulled out a book his mother had given us many year's ago, Saints of the Southwest, and read about Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe during our brunch. He also read our Our Lady of Guadalupe Pop-Up book to everyone. The babies really loved seeing all the pop ups!
"Are there peoples inside?" asked our little two year old in her raspy voice...
Our sweet baby girls both had croup this past week but finally started to improve by the weekend.
... and of course they pulled out some of our Our Lady of Guadalupe Dolls and Blocks!
"Am I not here who am your Mother?
Are you not under my shadow and protections?
Am I not the fountain of your joy?
Are you not in the fold of my mantle, in the cradle of my arms?”
- Blessed Virgin Mary to St. Juan Diego
Our Lady of Guadalupe, ora pro nobis!
