The Patroness of the Americas and the Star of the New Evangelization

On December 9, 1531, on the hill of Tepeyac in the north of Mexico City, a young woman "dazzling with light" appeared to a native called Juan Diego Cuauhtlatoatzin.

She revealed that she was the Virgin Mary, and asked for a church to be built on the site of her apparition. The unbelieving bishop asked Juan Diego to obtain a sign from the apparition as proof. It did not take long for his wish to be granted.

On December 12th, appearing for the fourth and last time to Juan Diego, Mary sent him to gather roses at the top of the hill. He returned greatly astonished, with his tilma (or cloak) filled with the most beautiful roses he had ever seen, in the middle of winter! Under the injunction of the Virgin, he took these flowers to the bishop, and showed the content of his tilma to all the people gathered around the prelate.

To their amazement, they all observed the image miraculously printed on the tilma, representing "the ever-virgin Mary of Guadalupe," as she called herself. Our Lady of Guadalupe was declared the Patroness of the Americas and the Star of the New Evangelization by Pope Saint John Paul II.

 Eén: U bent hier in Nederland. U begeeft zich op een NEDERLANDS talig forum. U had tenminste de moeite moeten nemen bovenstaand verhaal te vertalen in het NEDERLANDS.

Twee: De Nieuwe Evangelisatie van Paus Johannes Paulus II is een wassen neus. Er is in de praktijk geen enkele sprake van nieuwe evangelisatie. Het aantal kerkgangers in heel Europa (West Europa voorop), Noord Amerika en Australie is sinds het overlijden van Johannes Paulus II sterk gedaald, en blijft dalen.

Een bepaalde club heeft het mantra van de Nieuwe Evangelisatie aangetrokken met maar één doel: ledenwerving voor de eigen niche, en dit gaat ten koste van de "gewone" kerk. Want tegen elk lid dat geworven wordt staan 4 afhakers waarvan er 3 nooit meer naar de kerk gaan. De nieuwe evangelisatie wordt dus misbruikt en is een lege kretologie.

Nu kun je sprookjes rondstrooien, dat mag natuurlijk. Maar er zullen weinig mensen intrappen. Het is allemaal plastic. Of lood om oud ijzer. De komende jaren zal de kerkgang verder dalen, tot een bijna nul punt.

Wat overblijft zal niet van uw smaak zijn. En waar u voor staat zal niet meer gefaciliteerd kunnen worden omdat er geen geld meer voor is. Want uw nieuwe evangelisatie is in de praktijk een peperdure exercitie van huurlingen.
