Here is something you might enjoy from December 11th, 2010 as we awaited the feast day: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=REZKc-cPuJE Here is the story of one of her children:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FY-L6maLqPUI remembered you and your child in my rosary prayers at Tepeyac Hill on our Mother's feast day.God be with you.*
The new basilica is so.... well ugly. I wish they had a way to repair or stabilize the old church.
@Badger Cath- Dittos. THAT is what a real Catholic church should look like.I'm interested in the Latin superscription over the facade. All I can make out is "NON FECIT TAL(?)...", and I think the last word is "... NATIONI". Does anyone know what the whole motto is, in Latin and/or English?
Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us!

@Pennycake- Thx for the quote and translation. An apt motto for the shrine of La Guadalupana. I wonder if it was carried over onto the "new" shrine?
You're most welcome =)from this article date Dec 2002:"Writing in 1688 Fray Francisco de Florencia coined the slogan that made Mexico not merely another chosen nation, but the Chosen Nation: non fecit taliter omni nationi (he did not act in such a way for every nation)--words which still adorn the portal of the basilica and shine in lights at night."http://campus.udayton.edu/mary/meditations/samaha6.html
