The Divine Mother comes to us in many forms. Today, on the feast day of the Virgin of Guadalupe, she appears to us as she did, miraculously, on the tilma (cloak) of Juan Diego at Tapeyac, Mexico in 1531. Here is a prayer that many of her devotees recite:

"Remember, O most gracious Virgin of Guadalupe, that in your apparitions on Mount Tepeyac you promised to show pity and compassion to all who, loving and trusting you, seek your help and protection.

"Accordingly, listen now to our supplications and grant us consolation and relief. We are full of hope that, relying on your help, nothing can trouble or affect us. As you have remained with us through your admirable image, so now obtain for us the graces we need. Amen."
