A great sign appeared in the sky, a woman clothed with the sun,with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.
From the traditional story of Guadalupe, translated from the original Nahuatl language of the Aztecs, by Fr Martinus, Our Lady of Guadalupe Abbey. See trappistabbey.org.
The Lady addresses Juan Diego (Ch. 6, ‘The Lady’s Request’)
For truly I Myself,I am your Compassionate Mother,yours, for you yourself,for everybody here in the Land,for each and all together,for all others too, for all Folk of every kind,who do but cherish Me,who do but raise their voices to Me,who do but seek Me,who do but raise their trust to Me.
For here I shall listen to their groanings, to their saddenings;here shall I make well and heal uptheir each and every kind of disappointment,of exhausting pangs, of bitter aching pain.
You are the highest honor of our race.Resp. Psalm (Judith 15:9)
MARANATHA.
