Am I not your Mother?: On the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe

“Woman Clothed in the Sun” by artist James Langley

On this feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, a recent Lay Witness article by Kathryn Jean Lopez reminds us of the many ways the Virgin of Guadalupe remains to carry significant meaning for Catholics in America today:

At a time when Catholic lawmakers so often and prominently give voice and momentum to the culture of death—giving cover most emphatically with their religious identification to laws that support and even fund abortion—Our Lady of Guadalupe is a powerful image. She stands as a challenge to every Catholic in public life. She stands as a challenge to civic life and citizenship, which must always be in prudent accord with that which is True and never an offense to it.
