  2. I like to have a shrine like that. In the Philippines we call it grotto. And of course, I knew our Lady of Guadalupe and so knew the story of Juan Diego. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I grew up as a Roman catholic, my sister used to carry this during a procession.

  5. Our Lady so fragrant in her beauty,
    how can she survive those cold, belligerent surroundings?
    Yet she does.
