We had not only "Juan Diego" who came up preceded by a group of indigenous to present the roses and the miracle of Mary's image imprinted on his tilma to "bishop" Padre Hoyos, but also a Mexican dance group from All Saints in Manassas who were wearing elaborate costumes and performed a dance symbolizing the submission of all Mexican peoples and also all forces of evil to Mary.
They danced again during the social following Mass and a quick procession from the church to the school. Roses were distributed to all and many people took the opportunity of having their pictures taken with La Morenita. Maybe we weren't as big as New York or San Antonio and certainly not Mexico City, but we had every bit as much fun with our celebration. ¡Que viva la Virgen de Guadalupe y que con su intercesión logramos una reforma migratoria en 2010!
