Our Lady of Guadalupe, a day early

Because Dec. 12 falls on a Sunday this year, many are celebrating Our Lady of Guadalupe today. The following is a hodge-podge of random thoughts.

Our Lady of Guadalupe is patroness of the unborn and patronness of the Americas.   Human Life International’s explanation of why they chose her as their patronness nicely sums up why so many in the pro-life movement consider her as patronness.

The title patronness of the Americas prompted two thoughts. One was that the Americas are connected in a way that no other two continents are.  The other is that the US is doubly safeguarded by Mary with the feast of the Immaculate Conception the patronal feast day of the US and under her protection as patronness of the Americas.
