"Know for sure...that I am the perfect and ever Virgin Holy Mary, Mother of the God of truth through Whom everything lives, the Lord of all things near us, the Lord of heaven and earth. I want very much to have a little house built here for me, in which I will show Him, I will exalt Him and make Him manifest. I will give Him to the people in all my personal love, in my compassion, in my help, in my protection: because I am truly your merciful Mother." These are the words that Our Lady of Guadalupe spoke to St. Juan Diego. Mary's role is to love, to exalt, to point to and to lead people to Jesus. Mary grew in love with God and shared God's love for her with others. She shows us that we have a similar task. Advent is a special time of grace, following Mary's lead, to come to a deeper encounter with her Son and to invite others to do the same. Come, Lord Jesus, come!
