The traveling icon of Our Lady of Guadalupe is at Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton church in Mechanicsburg until Tuesday of next week (August 7). On Sunday, August 5, at 3 PM, we will have a special prayer service to venerate the icon and praise the goodness and grace of God shown in His handmaid Mary, the patroness of the Americas. Many thanks to our parish Knights of Columbus Council for bringing the
icon to our parish. God's message to a humble peasant, Juan Diego, was simple and direct: trust in God and pray. The words of Mary, the mother of Jesus, and her appearance as a native girl, gave millions the confidence to believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to give their lives and souls to Him. We join with Mary, the first disciple of Jesus, in rededicating ourselves to His Gospel, and in redirecting our best energies to the service of God.
