Our Lady of Guadalupe

I turned on the Spanish-language TV station and caught a bit of the festivities surrounding Our Lady of Guadalupe today. If the words were opaque, the songs and pictures clear.

The week has felt a bit celebratory hasn't it? The Feast of the Immaculate Conception on Monday and today Our Lady of Guadalupe. I love the lower-key Marian days. It makes ordinary days seem special without adding burdens.
