A Penitent Blogger

Mindful of my imperfections, seeking to know Truth more deeply and to live Love more fully.

Quid sum miser tunc dicturus? Quem patronum rogaturus? Cum vix iustus sit securus?

Today is a celebration of recognition.

On today’s feast of our Lady of Guadalupe, we celebrate (among other things) how Saint Juan Diego recognized that the Blessed Virgin Mary was a woman not unlike his own people.

In one of the Gospels provided for today’s feast (Luke 1:39-47), Saint Elizabeth and even the unborn Saint John the Baptist recognize that, still in his mother’s womb, the Son of God is in their midst.

May you and I recognize the presence and the path of God in our lives, by the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
