Our Lady of Guadalupe: An image for our times

December 1, 2022

Bishop Michael F. Burbidge: "We have heard the saying, 'A picture is worth a thousand words.' How true this is, gazing at the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe, who we remember on her feast day Dec. 12. This miraculous image was given by God to the people of Mexico at a time they desperately needed to know Jesus. This event, and the subsequent witness of the Mexican people, inspires our faith and helps us grow closer to Jesus." (CNS photo: Junno Arocho Esteves)
