In the wake of the persecutions of the church in Mexico, Archbishop Luis Maria Martinez preached these encouraging sermons to the faithful gathered at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Directed in an intimate way to the people of Mexico these meditations speak to all of us of the most tender love of Our Lady of Guadalupe, who has been declared “Patroness of the Americas” by the church. In these pages you will learn more about the significance of Mary’s apparition and her words at Tepeyace. In the words of the Archbishop himself: “we must trust fully and lovingly in the Most Holy Virgin of Guadalupe May no sorrow afflict us; may no pain disturb us; may no persecution make us tremble! Here is Mary, who is our mother; she is life and health; we live under her protection, and we leave everything to her.” Paper.
