Cardinal Gibbons Hosts Bilingual Mass to Celebrate Our Lady of Guadalupe

Posted On: 12/13/2018 1:33 PM

The Cardinal Gibbons Spanish Honor Society hosted the first-ever bilingual Mass in school history, which was performed in both English and Spanish, to celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe on Wednesday, Dec. 12. 

At the beginning of Mass, students adorned the altar with symbols of Our Lady of Guadalupe, including a replica of the tilma that bears her image, a handstitched altar cover from Mexico and numerous roses, symbolizing the Miracle of the Roses. Students from the Spanish Honor Society then shared the story of Our Lady of Guadalupe, which commemorate the appearance of the Virgin Mary to Juan Diego, a Mexican man who had recently converted to the Catholic faith, in 1531 on the Hill of Tepeyac in present-day Mexico City. 

Senior Kelly Harris, a member of the Spanish Honor Society, performed “Ave Maria” in Spanish, as well as other Spanish songs, including the communion hymn “Pan de Vida.”

The Mass concluded with a blessing by Rev. Cruz and a reminder to students to follow the example set by Blessed Mary and become willing instruments of the Lord.
