Today, December 12th is the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
The Blessed Virgin Mary appeared under this title in Mexico on December 9 and December 12, 1531.
I’d like to share facts about this event in honor of her feast.
“Know, know for sure, my dearest, littlest, and youngest son, that I am the perfect and ever Virgin Holy Mary, Mother of the God of truth through Whom everything lives, the Lord of all things near us, the Lord of heaven and earth…” ~ Our Lady of Guadalupe

On June 16, 1675 Jesus appeared to Sister Margaret Mary Alacoque (now a saint) and asked for the creation of a new feast.
He requested for the Feast of the Sacred Heart to be celebrated on the Friday after the Feast of Corpus Christi, nineteen days after Pentecost.
In 1856, Pope Pius IX extended the feast to the Universal Church. This year, the Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus is celebrated on June 28th.
The devotion to the Sacred Heart is very popular and one you may already know and/or practice. If not, I recommend learning about it.
Rather than explain the devotion, I’ll share a recent experience that connects to the Sacred Heart.
