My bilingual First Holy Communion class consists largely of children of El Salvadorean immigrants. Their families share the Mexicans' devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe.
Thechildren and their parents processed with their hand-made tissue paper roses, genuflected in front of the Monstrance, and then processed to the image of Our Lady to sing the traditional song sung on the vigil of her feast day, "Las Mananitas". Then, they left Our Lady with their flowers as tokens of respect and love. It was so innocent and sweet!
