A place for those who do not 'count'
· Praying at the foot of the Virgin in the Basilica of Guadalupe ·
“Mary, the woman who gave her 'yes', wished also to come to the inhabitants of these American lands in the person of the Indian Saint Juan Diego. Just as she went along the paths of Judea and Galilee, in the same way she walked through Tepeyac, wearing the indigenous garb and using their language so as to serve this great nation. Just as she accompanied Elizabeth in her pregnancy, so too she has and continues to accompany the development of this blessed Mexican land. Just as she made herself present to little Juan, so too she continues to reveal herself to all of us, especially to those who feel, like him, 'worthless' (cf. Nican Mopohua, 55)”. Pope Francis recalled this in his homily at the Mass he celebrated on Saturday afternoon, 13 February, in the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe. At the end of the celebration, the Pontiff crowned the image of the Virgin and stopped for a while to pray.
