Guadalupanos are on the march throughout Mexico
Tomorrow (Dec. 12) is the feast day of Mexico's beloved Brown Virgin - Our Lady of Guadalupe, the Patroness and Protector of the nation.
It is the most solemn day in the liturgical calendar of the Mexican Roman Catholic Church, far more important than Christmas and other major holidays.
Across Mexico today hundreds of thousands of pilgrims, called guadalupanos, are converging on the Basílica de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe in Mexico City. This young follower of the Brown Virgin attended Mass with his parents two years ago, at Mérida's historic Church of San Cristóbal. Mexico celebrates "La Virgen Morena," the Brown Virgin.
