    Juan Diego, the Indian, is passing at the foot ofTepeyac Hill. Suddenly the hill is enveloped in rays of light. The air is filled with songs and music. He halts in his steps, he looks, he listens.... he sees Mary and Mary tells him:

    `Know for certain, littlest of my sons, that I am the perfect and perpetual Virgin Mary, Mother of the True God through Whom everything lives, the Lord of all things near and far, the Master of heaven and earth. I wish and intensely desire that in this place nay sanctuary be erected. Here I will demonstrate, I will exhibit, I willgive all my love, my compassion, my help and my protection to the people. "

    "I am your merciful mother, the merciful mother of all of you who live united in this land, and of all mankind, of all those who love me, of those who cry to me, of all those who seek me, of those who have confidence in me."

    Four activities essentially maternal: to love, to have compassion, to aid, to defend. Can anything more be added to the offices of a mother? If she promises to give these things, it means that she is promising to be a mother and show herself as a mother.

    - Msgr. Anget Garibay
