Our Lady of Guadalupe
Why Turn to Mary?
Jesus loved and honored His Mother Mary and wants us also to honor her and love her as our Mother. While Jesus was dying on the cross, He turned to His Mother and said “Woman, behold your son!” To His beloved disciple John He said, “Behold, your Mother!” (John 19:26-27) Jesus gave His Mother to us as our own.
When in doubt and confusion, turn to Mary, for she is our Mother in Heaven who watches over us and protects us. Take refuge in her Immaculate Heart, where you will find comfort and strength.
In the midst of temptation, turn to Mary! When you want to give up and despair, turn to Mary! For she is the Mother of Life and will lead you to her Son Jesus, Eternal Life.
