Guadalupe: The Maternal Face of God

Episode Seventeen

Host Jeremiah Washington welcomes Sister Mila Diaz Solano for a conversation about the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, celebrated on December 12. In 1945 Pope Pius XII declared Our Lady of Guadalupe patroness of all the Americas. Her integration into U.S. Catholic culture has been greatly influenced by the devotion of immigrants from Mexico and other Latin American countries. Over time she has come to be understood as good news for the impoverished and oppressed of every nation.
