Our Lady of Guadalupe by Judy Gibson King (Polymer
clay, 2005, 6" tall) Grace Episcopal Church

Our Lady of Guadalupe is known as the Mary of the Americas.
She is wearing red and green, the colors in the Mexican
flag. Her cloak is adorned with stars. Our Lady of Guadalupe
appeared to a peasant named Juan Diego and asked him
to take a message to the Bishop. A church was to be
built where Mary stood. It was to be a church for all
I thought this piece was appropriate for Day 3 of the
Convention, “For She is the Breadth of the Power
of God” celebrating the anniversary of the ordination
of women. The Bishop of Mexico did indeed have a church
built at the site where Mary appeared. It was and still
is a church for all people.
