***THE STAR OF EVANGELIZATION***

the one Rebecca liked
my favorite

I had to post today!! i joined in this celebration of Mary in 2010 with Rebecca and her friends. As I go back today, I see a lot of
the same peeps and some new!!! Alleluia!(those pics are 4 I used in 2010, actually I painted those 3)
   Pope Paul VI called Mary the "STAR of EVANGELIZATION"
Immediately after conceiving Jesus, she took Jesus to Elizabeth and her baby in her womb. Both Elizabeth and John accepted Jesus as their Lord and received the Holy Spirit.
     Throughout history Mary has done whatever her Son has told her and made diciples of all nations. Probably the most fruitful evangelization took place from 1531-1538 at the hill of Tepeyac, near what is now Mexico City. During those 7 years, Mary, under the title of OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE, led eight million people to give their lives to CHRIST. Over three thousand people each day for 7 years were baptized into CHRIST. In effect, Mary who prayed in the upper room before the first Christian Pentecost was used by the LORD to bring new Penecosts each day for 7 years.
  MARY, the "Star of Evangelization" will make us stars of evangelization. Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us.
   this is today's reading out of the "One Bread, One Body"book of Presentation Ministries.
