The Virgin Guadalupe…

December 12th is the day to celebrate the Virgin Guadalupe.

She is known in Mexico and Latin America as the Protector of the Unborn,

and a symbol for the Pro-Life Movement.  Children are dressed in their traditional

dress, taken to the church, paraded in front of the statue and then a procession occurs.
