A reflection on the Blessed Mother for the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, by Mother Maria-Michael Newe, OSB.
Mary mirrors heaven in that she meets us at our weakness and helps us through. She doesn’t condemn us, but she comes with a small chide saying: “Don’t you trust me?” I think there’s something for all of us in her message to Juan Diego: “There is nothing to frighten or distress you. Do not let your heart be troubles and let nothing upset you. Is it not I, your Mother who is here? Are you not under my protection? Are you not, fortunately, under my care?”
Yes, we are fortunately under your care!
