My dear children: may Jesus watch over my daughters and sons for me!
This morning, on the day of the memorial of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, the Holy See made public Pope Francis’ decision to promulgate the decree on a miraculous cure attributed to the intercession of the Venerable Servant of God, Guadalupe Ortiz.
Let us give thanks to God and to the most Blessed Virgin our Mother for this pontifical act, which opens the way to the beatification of this sister of ours. As the Church has declared, “she dedicated herself entirely and with joy to God and to the service of his Church, and experienced intensely God’s love.”
Guadalupe converted all her activities into a place of meeting with Christ: her work as a researcher in chemistry, the classes she taught in various educational institutions, the work of domestic administration, the direction of university residences, etc. Her sanctity was forged in her correspondence to God’s grace in her daily life, in her apostolate, and in her desire to improve the lives of the most needy.
Let us have recourse to Guadalupe’s intercession, so that she obtains for us the grace of living with joy and fidelity our vocation to holiness and apostolate in the middle of the world.
Your Father blesses you with all his affection,
