I just love Our Lady of Guadalupe. My favorite pair of earrings have her image on them. (I bought those earrings from On This Day Designs, and though I couldn’t find them on their site anymore, these are a close representation.)

So today, on this special feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe and Third Sunday of Advent, I can’t help but share my favorite Marian quote, which came right from Mary’s mouth as she spoke to Juan Diego:

“Am I not here, who is your Mother? Are you not under my protection? Am I not your health? Are you not happily within my fold? What else do you wish? Do not grieve nor be disturbed by anything.”
