This was my first Dec 12th at our new church and it was fantastic.
The mass was bilingual and I was surprised at how much of the Spanish prayers and songs I remember from childhood.
And the singing. Oh how I loved the singing. You can hear the joy in everyone's voice. Just listen. There is even a "grito" at the beginning.
And this was at the end of the mass. You leave filling so happy, comforted and loved.
The Phi has always been familiar with La Virgen. I have a pretty extensive collection of Virgen items in our house. (I also have a lot of Frida Kahlo stuff up so she often gets them mixed up.)
That night as I put the girls to bed we started a new December 12th tradition. Instead of reading a book I told them the story of San Juan Diego and La Virgen de Guadalupe.

I loved sharing this with my family.
