On Sunday, December 10th,2017 at Saint Sebastian Parish, Father General of the Congregation of the Oblates, Eduardo Leon, officiated the Eucharistic Celebration in honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe. "The miracle of the Virgin of Guadalupe, is the miracle of the infinite love that God has for his children, who always fills us with blessings and to whom the mother of Guadalupe, wants to save for complacency of her Son", these were among others, expressions of father Eduardo Leon.
It was a very rewarding ceremony, where the faithful could live the Guadalupe miracle and all the love and mercy that Divine Providence always pour on us.
They wanted to honor the Mother of Jesus and our Mother, with many acts that included:
Dances, with the representation of the Guadeloupian apparitions
Choir, which sang beautiful Marian songs
The most significant act was the procession of students; senior citizens and Catholic groups offered to Our Lady of Guadalupe, attended by more than 3,000 people who marched through the streets of the historic center of Quito, with the sole purpose of showing their love to our Blessed Mother whose Image was carried on the shoulders of several devotees.
The procession that paralyzed the historical center of Quito, was presided by ecclesiastical authorities; Armed Forces; National Police; Fire Department; and the Metropolitan Police OF Quito.
