'The Loving Gaze of Mother Mary'

Our Lady of Guadalupe

Sing and rejoice, O daughter Zion! See, I am coming to dwell among you, says the LORD. Many nations shall join themselves to the LORD on that day, and they shall be his people...

- Zechariah 2:14-15

At Mass in a cathedral in Mexico one Sunday, we were seated near a large reproduction of Our Lady of Guadalupe. All through Mass, people came and knelt in front of the image, prayed and then returned to the congregation. One man knelt facing the altar on the cool stone floor in front of the image. Shabbily dressed, he rose from his knees only once, then winced, sat down and rolled up his trouser leg to reveal a terribly swollen calf. He rubbed it, then returned to his knees, rocking back and forth, hands folded, lips moving continually in prayer, as Our Lady gazed down at him and he looked fervently at her.

My heart filled, and I prayed for him, for the hope of the day, revealed in the loving gaze of the mother, when that man--and all of us--would sing and rejoice, whole and healthy, joyfully in the dwelling of the Lord.

Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us.

Our Lady, presented to us today, on one of Her many Feast Days, in one of Her many forms, always there to hear our prayers and intercede for us. Let us celebrate and honour Her. Mary, mother of God, hear our prayers. In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, Amen
