Our Lady of Guadalupe
The Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe is celebrated on December 12th. In 1999, Pope John Paul II, in his homily from the Solemn Mass at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, during his third visit to the sanctuary, declared the date of December the 12th as a Liturgical Holy Day for the whole continent.
During the same visit Pope John Paul II entrusted the cause of life to her loving protection, and placed under her motherly care the innocent lives of children, especially those who are in danger of not being born.
Dec 12 is also the day the Supreme Court determined that George W. Bush was the legally elected President of the United States.Jeb Bush entrusted this cause to the protection of Our Lady of Guadalupe.To date George W. Bush has been a strong Pro life President.He has not always made the best decisions in this regard,but overall his record has been exemplary.Can we imagine where Al Gore would have stood and what justices he would have appointed?
Please keep saying the rosary for Mike.His numbers aren't as good in the Eastern states as they have been in the other states.These states are a winner take all and so far McCain has the higher numbers.At least the polls say.
Mike has reached out to his evangelical base but doesn't seem to get his message out as well to the general public.I hope he will outreach to pro life Catholics and get his message on the ground to the general public as well.The conservatives in these states.
He needs these rosaries.This is an uphill battle.
If anyone has any new info pls post it.
