Our Lady of Guadalupe

guadalupe

Today is the feast of our Lady of Guadalupe for whom I hold a special devotion. On this day, I am reminded of the importance of sensible evangelism, especially when ministering with indigenous peoples. The truth will be recognized and embraced by those who are seeking the holy. We need never impose our metaphors at the cost of theirs. Our job is to present the good news and to allow the holy spirit to present the resonances to those to whom we speak. Our Lady of Guadalupe wears the garb of the Americas, and in doing so has led millions to her son. There is a message and a lesson for us all in that .
