The Virgin of Guadalupe

This past summer I took a trip to Santa Fe, New Mexico, and I spent a morning sketching the Virgin of Guadalupe at her shrine there. It was peaceful, quiet, and serene, and as I sketched the believers came and placed their flowers and offerings and griefs at her feet. And I thought of the words of Queen Elizabeth about the Virgin in Elizabeth, the 1998 film: “She had such power over men’s hearts. They died for her.”
