AM I NOT YOUR MOTHER? - Reflections on Our Lady of Guadalupe
— Archbishop Luis Maria Martinez
A Letter of Encouragement from Your Loving Mother
Eight chapters of homilies and reflections by Archbishop Luis María Martínez, first Primate of Mexico that:
- Unfold the profound meaning of Mary’s words to Juan Diego in 1531
- Emphasize the ongoing nature of the blessings Mary has bestowed on us as patroness of the Americas, and
- Highlight the role Mary continues to play in overcoming adversity in our lives
In the wake of the persecutions of the Church in Mexico, Archbishop Luis María Martínez, first Primate of Mexico, preached these encouraging sermons to the faithful gathered at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe. These meditations speak to us all in an intimate voice about the most tender love of Our Lady of Guadalupe, who has been declared “Patroness of the America” by the Church.
In these pages, you will learn more about the significance of Mary’s apparition and her words at Tepeyac. In the words of the Archbishop himself, “We must trust fully and lovingly in the Most Holy Virgin of Guadalupe. May no sorrow afflict us; may no pain disturb us; may no persecution make us tremble! Here is Mary, who is our mother; she is life and health; we live under her protection and we leave everything to her.”
May the inspiring words of the archbishop find a welcome home in your heart, that you too may know Our Lady of Guadalupe as that tender mother who is here for you.Paperback. 221 pages.
