Interesting up-coming event:
In honor of the 475th anniversary of the appearance of Our Lady of Guadalupe to Juan Diego, the Knights of Columbus are organizing a nationwide speaking tour by Father Eduardo Chavez, one of the most renowned experts on the Guadalupe apparitions and the postulator of St. Juan Diego’s cause for sainthood.
Entitled Our Lady of Guadalupe: The Woman who Changed the Hemisphere, the fascinating 90-minute talk and accompanying slide show is both scholarly and accessible. It tells the story of St. Juan Diego and Our Lady of Guadalupe, and shows how Our Lady of Guadalupe provided the “perfectly inculturated” example of evangelization to help us to build the future that all nations share in the Americas, the Catholic Hemisphere.
The lecture series begins in Los Angeles at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels on Sept. 16. Other scheduled dioceses include Orange, Chicago, Corpus Christi, Dallas, and Santa Fe."
And this sign of the times:
"The lecture will delivered in Spanish, with simultaneous English translation available in most locations."
