There is a group of Guadalupana’s who help share their love for Our Lady of Guadalupe in the parish. This week they had the pilgrim Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe. After saying the 10 am Latin mass here, I joined them and they were so gracious to me.
It was hosted by Jorge and Griselda at their large house that is open to everyone. It has a fenced in yard so the kids are safe and the parents can relax. They have a swimming pool too. They are building a small chapel as you can see in the background.
While I was enjoying the people’s company, I receive a phone call from many of my Latin Mass friends in California who were also getting together to play and eat (hopefully they prayed the Rosary too). They were also celebrating a birthday and St. Pius V’s feast day. It was so wonderful to be in one traditional gathering while getting the phone call from all those I miss so much in California.
These important celebrations take everyone working together to clean up and help out. This is a great way to celebrate our traditional catholic faith. This is why it is so wonderful to be a traditional catholic.
