Celebrating Our Lady of Guadalupe, too
Last Sunday's youth group was an easy one to prepare. It was the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe so we had authentic Mexican food! I'm happy to report that Grandma Palma said although their family's restaurant is closed, they are now selling salsa and entrees at HyVee! After supper, I talked about the miracle of Dec. 12, the tilma cloth, and Mary's appearance to a peasant man named Juan Diego. I already knew about the true optics of her eyes, but this year I learned that a doctor's stethoscope revealed a baby's heartbeat when placed on the Virgin's womb. And, the temperature of the tilma remains at 98.6' F even 500 years or so after the miracle. Truly God wants to be with us! O Come, Emmanuel.
