Guadalupe in the Movies!

Here is a bulletin from Sr. Rose, our movie nun:

A new film is being released on December 1, 2006, to commemorate the 475th anniversary of the appearances of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico. It is called Guadalupe. It is coming out the same day as The Nativity Story and I think the two films will be so very compatible. (Read my blog and find out why!) The film is produced by a Mexican film company called Dos Corazones and being distributed in 200 theaters in cities where there are large Spanish-speaking populations, including New York, New Jersey, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Antonio, Denver, Miami, etc. It is in Spanish with English subtitles.... The film is for everyone, not just the Spanish-speaking. Our Lady of Guadalupe is a model of evangelization in so many ways. An image (picture) is worth way more than a thousand words.

I think 2006 will go down as a significant cinematic Marian year.
