Our Lady of Guadelupe: Inculturated Evangelisation
The Pontifical Commission for Latin America is happy to “share its joy at the announcement of the Eucharistic celebration to be presided over by the Holy Father on the occasion of the feast of the Blessed Virgin of Guadalupe, Empress of America and Patroness of the Philippines, on Monday 12 December at 18:00 hours in St. Peter’s Basilica.”
In a statement, the Pontifical Commission says that nine years after the fifth centenary of the apparitions of the Virgin Mary of Guadalupe, Catholics throughout the American continent are called “to rediscover the profound meaning of the presence of Jesus Christ through Mary in our lands.”
Her extraordinary example of inculturated evangelization, it adds, calls us to look to Mary, who challenges all Latin American nations to find a way forward for the common good.
