Guadalupe Stories: Katherine Carlson

“My first encounter with Our Lady was in Mexico City. I knew of the story of Juan Diego, but never fully understood the significance and role Mary played in it. After seeing and being able to interact with this image, I felt the powerful presence that Our Mother had in this image on a tilma.

To know that she was truly alive in the tilma and being able to physically touch a copy of the image was overwhelming. Hearing all the powerful stories and encounters changed my life for good.

Now, I pray to Our Mother every single day. I ask for Our Lady of Guadeloupeā€™s intercession daily.

After every rosary, which is almost every day of the week, I pray for her. I know I need her help and love to understand how to submit my life to Christ every single morning. She has been my constant guide to Jesus since Mexico City one year ago.”
