On Our Lady...

Today is the feast day of Our Lady of Guadalupe, and I invite you to hear about it in the Among Women podcast this week. Tonight, in the Gohn home, we'll be breaking out the Mexican food in her honor!

Besides, Mary is "Cause of our joy", so it's a great day all around...

But, I thought you might also appreciate a link to a very fine post by Mark Shea from earlier this week. While not specifically about Guadalupe, I thought it was a brillantly simple yet sublime treatise on Mary as Immaculata, and its import for our world.

Please do read the whole thing.

Here's a snippet:

For by Mary’s creaturely humility and God’s subsequent exaltation of her through the grace of Christ, she gives the lie to every proposition upon which the Philosophies of Pride were founded and reminds us again that salvation is found not by saying with Shelley’s hero Satan "Better to reign in hell than serve in heaven" but by saying "Let it be unto me according to your word."
