December 9th

Today the Church commemorates Saint Juan Diego Cuauhtlatoatzin, Mexican native convert, to whom the Mother of God appeared at Tepeyac on December 9, 10, and 12, 1531, under the title of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

“O God, who by means of Saint Juan Diego showed the love of the most holy Virgin Mary for your people, grant, through his intercession, that, by following the counsels our Mother gave at Guadalupe, we may be ever constant in fulfilling your will.”
