The lecture began with an outline of Our Lady’s place in the history of the Church, using St Paul and St Thomas Aquinas as a starting point of reference. Andrew then detailed the story of the Guadalupe Apparitions, the Miraculous Nature of Our Lady’s Image, and the work of the Guardians in promoting the devotion and managing the National Pilgrimage Tour.
