Our Lady of Guadalupe Prayer Program
The Our Lady of Guadalupe Prayer Program began August 3 at the 129th Supreme Convention in Denver. This program features an image of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
Our Lady of Guadalupe, as patroness of the Americas, has special significance to the Knights of Columbus. When the Order sponsored a tour of a relic of St. Juan Diego's tilma in 2003, Our Lady of Guadalupe's role as mother of all in the Americas became very clear.
In city after city, crowds of tens of thousands of people came to venerate Our Lady of Guadalupe. What was most striking was not the number of people, but the number of nationalities and ethnicities represented in each gathering. Likewise, at the Guadalupe Festival sponsored by the Knights of Columbus in 2009 in Phoenix, more than 20,000 people came to venerate and celebrate Our Lady of Guadalupe. It is our hope that this prayer program will continue to expand devotion to Our Lady and the evangelization of the Americas.
For more information on the Our Lady of Guadalupe image and devotion, please see this letter from Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson.
