Guadalupe--the movie

Well, Our Lady of Guadalupe continues to call me.

I got the movie Guadalupe, out of the local library, expecting it to be a dramatization of the apparition of Our Lady to Juan Diego in 1531. It was that, but it was also much, much more. The story of the apparition was interspersed within a modern story of a sister and brother archeology team and how Our Lady of Guadalupe affects their lives and the lives of those around them.

It is also a loving portrayal of Mexico, its beauty and diversity. It makes me want to visit there, as well as to learn Spanish.

The movie is a story about life, love, family and culture.

It is well worth seeing.

It's a fantastic movie. They've aired it on a Spanish language channel a few times already. :D

I was pleasantly surprised--it exceeded my expectations.

Dymphna's favorite quotes


"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
