Our Lady of Guadalupe

Today is the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe! I haven't done a lot in the past with the kids to celebrate this feast, but this year they are learning more about Juan Diego, and the miraculous appearance of the Blessed Mother. And, I hope to reinforce the idea that Catholics throw great parties -- our parish is throwing a big one to celebrate this day, and great friends of ours are planning a fiesta tonight.

Although I haven't previously taught the kids a lot about this feast, I have a personal devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe. You can read more about that here.
