Below is a quote from the most recent post by Rocco Palmo on his blog, "Whispers in the Loggia," accompanied by several YouTube clips of celebrations in honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe all across the US:

"Sweet as it is, wherever it is, what it means can't be shirked, gang -- every 11-12 December is the "coming out" party for the emerging present and future of the Stateside church and, indeed, the seismic shift that it brings on practically every front.

"And it only grows bigger with each passing year.

"Que Viva la Virgen de Guadalupe... and every wish for a feliz fiesta to one and all."

I encourage you all to check out his blog for these clips, to see the extent and depth of the aliveness of the faith of the Hispanic Catholic community as they celebrate their Great Day of identity.

If you scroll down a little past this post, you'll find one I posted yesterday but actually created several days before, for Gaudete Sunday--they get posted by date of writing, it turns out--oh, well! But enjoy the song there, as well as the music on "Whispers."
