Nuestra Señora

Tomorrow is the feast day of the Virgin of Guadalupe. Tonight the Mexico Semester Program goes to the Basilica of Guadalupe, wherein is located her shrine and the original evidence of her appearance. Most of us have seen the the Basilica and its massive courtyard already...for example, see these pictures from my last visit.

No, tonight we are not going to see the buildings but the people. Millions of faithful pilgrims flock to the Basilica tonight and tomorrow, many arriving on their knees. Tonight we join them...
