“Let nothing discourage you, let nothing depress you, let nothing worry you.
Are you not under my shadow and protection?”
Our Lady of Guadalupe
Mary Ann shares about the apparitions of Our Lady to St. Juan Diego on Tepeyac Hill in Mexico, and how Our Lady is the mother of us all.
- Juan Diego heard beautiful music, and he stopped to listen instead of rushing off in a hurry. We need to stop and listen.
- The Blessed Mother told him that it was important that her plan be worked out with his help and involvement.
- She told Juan Diego, and through him she is speaking to all of us, “Let nothing discourage you, let nothing depress you, let nothing worry you. Am I not here, who am your Mother? Are you not under my shadow and protection?”
- Juan Diego met with a lot of resistance in trying to carry out what he was supposed to do, but he didn’t give up or quit. He persevered in doing God’s will.
