In honour of Our Lady of Guadalupe
Tuesday, March 21, 2023 @ 7:00 pm
In December 1531, the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared several times to a Mexican peasant called Juan Diego. She instructed Juan Diego to report to the local bishop and request that a church be built in her honor in that place. Juan Diego did as he was asked, but the bishop asked for a sign that would confirm that she was truly Our Lady. Juan Diego was instructed to gather some roses, which were miraculously blooming in winter. She arranged those roses in Juan Diego’s tilma (cloak) before he returned to the bishop. When Juan spilled the roses out in front of the bishop, an image of Our Lady of Guadalupe had been imprinted on his tilma. As a result of this apparition, millions of people converted to Christianity.
For sixty years now, to honor Our Lady of Guadalupe and the miracle of the roses, the Knights of Columbus in Monterrey, Mexico have organized a journey of silver roses, each traveling from eight different starting points in North America, over a nine-month period, all arriving at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Monterrey, Mexico on December 12 – the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
Five routes begin in Canada, with one of them originating in Alberta. We are blessed to have the silver rose visit us in St. Vital Parish on March 21. Accompanying the rose is a picture of Our Lady of Guadalupe that was blessed by Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI when he was pope. A couple of other relics will also be present: a thread from Juan Diego’s tilma and a soil sample from the place where the apparition took place.
The forty-five minute prayer service has three parts:
• the Holy Rosary,
• a Liturgy of the Word, and
• an Act of Consecration to Mary
Everyone is invited. What a blessing to be able to pray in the presence of these relics from Our Lady of Guadalupe. We hope you can join us!
