On March 25, the Feast of the Annunciation, one of the traveling missionary images of Our Lady of Guadalupe arrived in Rockland County.
Replicas of the miraculous image of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the basilica in Mexico City, the traveling images have journeyed to thousands of sites across America over the past 15 years to bring foster conversions, reverence for life, sanctity of the family, and solidarity of the Church.
The image was displayed at the 40 Days for Life prayer site at Perlman Drive in Spring Valley, the chapel of St. Margaret’s in Pearl River for the Cenacle of Life, and at the Sisters of Life Motherhouse in Suffern.
Our Lady of Guadalupe is the patroness of the pro-life movement and a smaller poster of the famous image stands every day at the prayer site in Spring Valley outside the Planned Parenthood office.
There is a prayer on the reverse side of the poster consecrating the 40 Days vigil to the Blessed Virgin and asking her help to bring about an end to abortion and a shuttering of facillities like Planned Parenthood, which promote it.
