Ten Days of Faith & Hospitality
Fly to Mexico on the first scheduled day (with an early afternoon arrival). Be
welcomed by the sisters at the airport.
With these women of faith, God's face in the poorest of the world is discovered, as it continues to be revealed in the Event of Guadalupe, where the Mexican tradition tells us Mary reached out to the humblest of the Indian people.
At the beginning, or at an appropriate moment during the Experience, the sisters share the meaning of Our Lady of Guadalupe for the Latin American people. They bring you to the Basilica located near their Motherhouse in Mexico City, where you spend an evening.
This journey of faith is a pilgrimage not to a shrine, but to the temple of the living God in the heart of a people.
After a two-hour car trip to the Guadalupe Center in Cuernavaca, Mexico, the sisters offer an orientation for the days ahead.
At the Center:
The Experience concludes with an evaluation and a discussion on implications for life.
This Faith Experience brings you in contact with the religious, social, political, and economic reality of the people of Mexico and Latin America.
The sisters wish to point out that contact with these realities can be difficult, in that it brings out the conflict between the North American experience and values, and those of the people of Latin America.
We find it important to relay this concern of the sisters to those wishing to participate in the Experience.
