Favors received from prayers to Guadalupe Ortiz

Seeking the intercession of men and women who have died with a reputation for holiness is a common practice in the Catholic Church. Examples of favors received through the intercession of Guadalupe follow.

A birthmark on my granddaughter’s face

My granddaughter, Caroline, was born with birthmark on her face that covered her forehead, nose and upper lip. The blemish was very noticeable. Three dermatologists we consulted gave different diagnoses, which was very disheartening. They only agreed that it would be very difficult to remove.

I decided to pray to Guadalupe as fervently as I could, since I was really worried. Now the girl is eighteen months old and the birthmark has completely disappeared. Ma. E.F.Q.

Conflict with a professor

In the first term of my last year at the university I had a bad time with one of the professors who contradicted everything I said in class. I barely passed the final exam, and the professor told me, among other things, that since I was a Catholic I didn’t deserve a higher mark.

I asked Guadalupe to intercede for me in this unjust situation. When my examination result was posted, I was surprised to see I had received the highest grade. A.S.L.
