Happy Birthday, Guadalupe
God of power and mercy,¡Feliz día Guadalupana a todos! ¡Morenita de Tepeyac, ruega por nosotros!
you blessed the Americas at Tepeyac
with the presence of the Virgin Mary at Guadalupe.
May her prayers help all men and women
to accept each other as brothers and sisters.
Through your justice present in our hearts
may your peace reign in the world.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
