Today many Catholics in Mexico will celebrate and honor Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe. Thousands of believers have made their pilgrimage to the Basilica de Guadalupe on the outskirts of Mexico City. It’s a celebration that has mariachis singing the mañanitas to our lady, to traditional dance performances and penance.
One of our writers shares the history of Our Lady of Guadalupe that began nearly 500 years ago.
Another shares her story on how she came to view La Guadalupe as an image of femininity and empowerment.
Both stories equally important as we celebrate nuestra Virgen Morenita.
