A Gift to Our Lady of Guadalupe from the Children's Rosary

In 1531 Our Lady appeared to a poor Indian, Juan Diego,  at Tepeyac Mexico and left her miraculous image on his tilma.  Our Lady is depicted in the local dress of the Aztecs and her black sash indicates she is with child.

Mary asked that a a Church be built at the site of her apparition.

Bl.  John Paul II visited the Basilica built on the location of the apparition four times during his papacy: 1979, 1990, 1999 and 2002.  During his visit in 1999 he entrusted the cause of life to her loving protection and placed under her motherly care the innocent lives of children, especially those who are in danger of not being born.

Last year the Children's Rosary began a tradition where we requested a Mass to be said on the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe for the Unborn. It is our hope and prayer that this year we may bring to Our Lady a great many Masses for this intention.  Just as Juan Diego dropped the Tilma in front of the Bishop and roses spilled out as a sign of Our Lady's visit.  We hope to humbly carry a bouquet of Masses before Our Lady and lay them out before her so that she may take them to her Son.

If anyone would like to request Masses for December 12th 2013 for the Unborn these can be requested through your parish or through many mission groups such as the Capuchins.  St. Padre Pio was a member of the Capuchins. Masses can be requested through them to be celebrated on December 12th.  The phone number to request a Mass through the Capuchin Missions is:

Please send us an email to let us know if you have requested a Mass.  Send emails to

Thank you all and God Bless!!
