Prayer to Our Lady of Guadalupe - Feast Day: Thursday, Dec. 12
Our Lady of Guadalupe,
Hear the prayers of your children
As you promised to Juan Diego.
Ease their suffering and fill them with your unfailing love.
Bring solace to those across the world forced from their homes
Fleeing poverty, violence, and strife.
Protect them in their tribulations,
Strengthen them as they build new lives,
Fill our aching world with your grace and compassion.
Mother of All,
You see beauty and holiness in each of us.
Open the hearts of those who cannot yet see
The dignity of your children seeking refuge.
Unite us to welcome the stranger in your name,
Grant us the courage to break down walls that divide us,
And guide us as we advocate for justice and peace. Amen.
