Our Lady of Guadalupe

Now go to the center door (don't you long to go in?) and scan up. Above the door is the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe. I just learned that she was especially mentioned as the protector of babies in danger of not being born, by our late Holy Father Pope John Paul the Great. See:

I know of a baby like that. Her earthly parents desperately want her, but the mom is having scary symptoms. I pray for all who are now in the situation of possibly losing their babies, either through natural means or through the evil scourge of abortion. Hail Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, Our Life, Our Sweetness and Our Hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve, to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, Oh gracious advocate, thine eyes of Mercy toward us. And after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Oh clement, Oh loving, oh sweet virgin Mary, pray for us, Oh Holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
