“And the Word WAS MADE flesh and dwelt amongst us”. John 1:14
As soon as the Holy Spirit overshadowed the womb of the Blessed Virgin Mary, God immediately became one of the human family. In like manner, when a child is conceived in his/her mother’s womb, he/she becomes one of us. This little human being now dwells among us.
It was on the Feast of The Immaculate Conception (then celebrated on December 9th that Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Americas and the unborn, first appeared to St. Juan Diego.
The National Night of Prayer for Life bridges the feasts of The Immaculate Conception, December 8th, and St. Juan Diego, December 9th, to honor Our Blessed Mother, to pray through her intercession for the establishment of a Culture of Life.
