Today we are going to have an Our Lady of Guadalupe party at a friend’s house.  It should be a lot of fun. We’re going to have a pinata for the little kids, and lots of food to share. Between the 4 families, we will have 26 children. We’ve all known each other for at least 11 years. It’s been such a blessing to have our children grow up together.

May you all have a blessed day today.

Prayer to Our Lady of Guadalupe

Our Lady of Guadalupe,
Mystical Rose,
make intercession for holy Church,
protect the sovereign Pontiff,
help all those who invoke you in their necessities,
and since you are the ever Virgin Mary
and Mother of the true God,
obtain for us from your most holy Son
the grace of keeping our faith,
of sweet hope in the midst of the bitterness of life
of burning charity, and the precious gift
of final perseverance.
