Our Lady of Guadalupe

I am your merciful mother and the mother of all the nations that live on this earth who would love me, who would speak with me, who would search for me, and who would place their confidence in me.  There I will hear their laments and remedy and cure all their miseries, misfortunes, and sorrows.”

From the Nican Mopohua, a 16th century narrative of the appearance to Juan Diego of the Lady of Guadalupe on the hill of Tepeyac in Mexico, originally composed in the native language of Nahuatl.  Such beautiful and consoling words she used to introduce herself to Juan Diego.  Photo by angelofsweetbitter via Flickr under a Creative Commons license.
