A virgin a Day: Our Lady of Guadalupe
I found this meme being hosted by Rebecca over at www.corazon.typepad.com
It's called "A Virgin A Day", celebrating the 12 days in December that lead up to the feast day of Our lady of Guadalupe."
I knew the second I saw this I would participate even if I'm a little late.I have always loved Guadalupe. I am Mexican American & was fortunate enough to visit la Basílica of Guadalupe, in Mexico City, where the miraculous image of la Virgen Morena is kept.
I grew up Catholic and I was to taught to revere la virgen. As an adult I have come to embrace Goddess spirituality.I see Our lady of Guadalupe as the great Mother Goddess. When I pray she is the image in my mind.
Rebecca describes this meme:
"This is not so much about religion, as it is about sharing
a common thread.
rejoicing in our sameness
with light, beauty, inspiration, thoughtful regard.
I suspect humor and charm will make strong appearances too.
it is about sharing favorite images, art, photographs, stories,
regarding the mother of all mothers.
it is really about showing up.
something she clearly
was a champ at."
I am happyto have found Rebecca's blog, and delighted to honor Guadalupe by participating in this meme .
“Known as Tonantzin among the Nahuatls, but also as Saint Moon, Queen of Nature,or Earth Mother in other parts of the Americas, laGuadalupana…
she returns as vessel of the indigenous spirit…she returns speaking in the inflections of an ancient tongue, before Christianity, beyond Christianity.
She is among the bearers of the myths, the rites, and the ancient quests.” Luis Rodriguez, ‘Forgive Me, Mother, for My Crazy Life"
♥On December 12, thousands of the faithful to Our Lady of Guadalupe, from all over the Mexico make the most important pilgrimage of all those undertaken during the year to the Basílica of Guadalupe, in Mexico City.
Thanks for visiting!Have a blessed night!
