Virgin of Guadalupe Videos 7: La reina del cielo (Vives en mi corazon)

We continue our series of Guadalupe videos -- one every day December 1-12 -- a bouquet of "roses" in honor of Our Lady, with another video highlighting the Virgin of Guadalupe's role as protector of immigrants. The Mexican group Montéz de Durango sing a lot about the immigrant experience. Their latest video is El Llanto de un Ilegal. In this video the singer talks to Our Lady of Guadalupe and says that although he is far from his native Mexico, he has never forgotten Her, that She is in his heart and he wants to speak with Her on behalf of all of his immigrant brothers and sisters who are in the same situation, away from their loved ones and religious traditions.
