Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Phil 4:6-7

Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us


Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe

Pope John Paul II's Prayer for Life:

O Mary, bright dawn of the new world, Mother of the living, to you do we entrust the cause of life.

Look down, O Mother upon the vast numbers of babies not allowed to be born, of the poor whose lives are made difficult, of men and women who are victims of brutal violence, of the elderly and the sick killed by indifference or out of misguided mercy.

Grant that all who believe in Your Son may proclaim the Gospel of life with honesty and love to the people of our time. Obtain for them the grace to accept that Gospel as a gift ever new, the joy of celebrating it with gratitude throughout their lives and the courage to bear witness to it resolutely, in order to build, together with all people of good will, the civilization of truth and love, to the praise and glory of God, the Creator and lover of life.

  1. Love this prayer Barbara. Have you heard of the artist, Alma Lopez who had created a blasphemous illustration of Our Lady of Guadalupe? It's being exhibited at the Oakland Museum of California and I've signed the protest to have it removed. Google it to check it our or check out my blog post from last week.


I appreciate your comments -- sometimes I feel like I'm talking to myself!
