Be Free From Worry, Fear and Anxiety

Don’t Forget Your Mother!

Dear Friend of Our Lady of Guadalupe,
I received this email from my friend Ray Mooney. Please take a minute to read what he had to say.
Dear Marian Friends,
When I lived in Allentown, PA I was privileged to have been one of the Guardians for the Missionary Image Our Lady of Guadalupe for two separate Visitations. If you have never been in the presence of her Missionary Image, I urge you to come to at least one of the eleven New York sites listed below. (The full schedule is listed below.)
Also see below the ad for the event on May 9 when Father Andrew Apostoli will be the celebrant and homilist at the 7:00PM Mass at Most Holy Trinity Church, 18 Trinity Plaza, Yonkers, NY 10701. Veneration of the Missionary Image will follow the Mass.
If you have questions or need more information, please contact Bonnie Valenti at

To Jesus Through Mary,
Ray Mooney

The Missionary Images are actual color and size (4’ x 6’) replicas of the original Miraculous Image of Our Lady which she left on Saint Juan Diego’s Tilma. They were blessed at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico by the Rector of the Basilica, Msgr. Diego Monroy to bring conversions, reverence for life, sanctity of the family and solidarity of the Church in America.
Please help us to make sure that all people have the opportunity to venerate this very special Image of our Blessed Mother.
Don’t forget that Sunday is Mother’s Day. Please don’t forget your Mother!
In the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
Dan Lynch

‘When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he
loved sta
nding near, he said to his mother,     
“Woman, behold your son.”
Then he said to the disciple,
“Behold your mother.”
And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home.’
(John 19:26-27)
Behold Your Mother…
Take her home into your heart!

The Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe

Our Lady of Guadalupe wants to be with us!
Almost 500 years ago, Our Lady appeared to Saint Juan Diego in Mexico, yet the image on his tilma is still a continuous apparition for us today!

 The Missionary Image is an exact digital replica of the original Miraculous Image.  It is not a painting. It has been blessed and certified in Mexico and making visitations, through the Apostolate of Dan Lynch since 1991.


Pope Francis spoke of her in his Message to the Americas, 2013:
“Like Jesus, Mary is close to all her sons and daughters; as a concerned mother, She accompanies them on their way through life. She shares all the joys, hopes, sorrows and troubles of God’s people. When the image of the Virgin appeared on the tilma of Juan Diego, It was the prophecy of an embrace:  Mary’s embrace of all the peoples of the vast expanse of America-The peoples who already lived there, and those who were yet to come.”
“Listen and be assured of it in your heart, let nothing harm,
trouble or disturb you.
Am I not here, I who am your Mother?”*
*Our Lady’s words to Juan Diego, 1531 – Our Lady’s word’s to us, 2014*
