December 9th – Feast of St. Juan Diego
“I am a nobody, I am a small rope, a tiny ladder, the tail end, a leaf” said Juan Diego to the Blessed Mother.
Without humility, how can we show true mercy?
Beloved brothers and sisters of every ethnic background of Mexico and America, today, in praising the Indian Juan Diego, I want to express to all of you the closeness of the Church and the Pope, embracing you with love and encouraging you to overcome with hope the difficult times you are going through.
