La Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe
Kathy Thaden

As the Episcopal Church continues to welcome people of many cultures we can celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe on December 12. The Virgin of Guadalupe---an image of Mary, the mother of Jesus -- is especially popular among people of Mexican, Central American and South American heritage. According to legend, Mary appeared in December, 1531, to Mexican peasant Juan Diego, on whose cloak was left the image that became known as the Virgin of Guadalupe. She is symbolic of God's manifestation to God's people, an apparition to an indigenous person, after hundreds of years of persecution and oppression. La Nuestra Señora is a symbol of God's love for all.

I have found this image one that speaks to many people on many different planes, and have been drawn to incorporate la Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe into my mosaic art.
