A Woman Clothed with the Sun: An Advent Retreat Guide on Our Lady of Guadalupe

During Advent in the year 1531, the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to a native Mexican, St. Juan Diego, and asked him a favor. She sent him to the bishop with a request to have a Catholic church built on the hill where she was appearing—Tepeyac Hill—in present-day Mexico City. The bishop was skeptical. He responded to the petition with a request of his own. He asked for a sign to show that this request indeed was coming from God. When Juan Diego relayed this to Mary, she complied—she provided a beautiful, dramatic sign indeed.

This sign made an incalculable impact on the evangelization of the Americas, an effect that continues to resound and spread even today.

These events and that incredible impact are the subjects of this Advent Retreat Guide: A Woman Clothed with the Sun.

  1. This was a lovely retreat and just what I needed at this time of the year. I truly didn’t know the story of Our Lady of Guadaloupe. Thank you, Father John, for being a guide on my spiritual journey. Your book “The Better Part” is amazing…I use it daily, read passages to the elderly each Sunday when I take communion and have bought copies of it for a number of friends.
