A Virgin A Day #12 and Good-Bye Until Next Year


La Guadalupana - Alexander Acha Ft. Emmanuel


Today, my friend Carlos who lives in Miami, sent me this video by Alexander Acha.  I had been mulling over what my last contribution would be to the twelve days of Our Lady.  I knew I would be featuring Our Lady of Guadalupe on this, Her Feast Day, but I never would have guessed it would be something like this.  Then I discovered Alexander Acha and his tribute to Juan Diego and his miraculous vision of Our Lady - The Patroness of the Americas. And.  I.  Knew.  I knew I had discovered something . . . 


. . . divine, exalted, glorious, gorgeous, grand, heavenly,  holy, ideal, majestic, noble, resplendent, sacred, spiritual, splendorous, transcendent, and transcendental.

Beautiful vocals, Spanish rap, traveling from recording studio to forest to countryside and visions of miracles, I could not offer anything better on this final day. No Spanish required.  All you need is an open heart. 

And one final thought
There are really no coincidences

I agree there are really no coincidences. I'm watching and listening to your song. Very unusual and so inclusive--and modern in its antiquity. Great way to end our 12 days together.

I like the fact that there are no coincidences. Sometimes, however, I'm not sure to do about the encounters that are given to me!

Blessing as you continue your journey!
