Q: Our parish would like to have a Mass honoring Our Lady of Guadalupe on the Sunday before December 12. Can we do that?
A: The community may sing songs about or to Guadalupe. They may decorate the church for Guadalupe. They may have dancers in her honor. They may tell or act out the story. They may include references to her in the petitions of the Universal Prayer. The preacher may mention her in his homily.
But the presidential prayers and the readings will be those for the Second Sunday of Advent. The presider wears purple.
