Los Angeles, Calif., Dec 11, 2019 / 04:45 pm (CNA).- It was in December of 1991, while attending a novena in honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe at St. Finbar Church in Burbank, that I learned that there existed a small piece of the tilma of Our Lady of Guadalupe in the city of Los Angeles.

The associate pastor at the time, Father Peter Irving, explained that this relic was stored at the archdiocesan Archival Center at the San Fernando Mission, and that he had requested it for the novena at St. Finbar. This tiny piece of the tilma is the only piece in existence outside of Mexico City. Being a devoted child of Mary, this fact providentially stuck with me.

Little did I know that Our Lady would save the life of my husband, Vicente, a decade later.

On Friday, May 3, 2002, my husband collapsed due to the rupture of a brain aneurysm. He immediately fell into a coma, flatlined en route to the hospital, and was given less than a 5% chance of surviving. He was 42 years old.

When we went to see him at the hospital, we were greeted by a medical team who took us into a private office and explained that he was gravely ill and that he would most likely not make it through the night. Two different priests went that night to anoint him. The neurosurgeon on call performed an emergency procedure of drilling a hole in my husband’s brain to relieve the pressure. The ventriculostomy drained his brain fluid and the blood from his bleeding brain into a bag. The doctor said that if he survived the night, he would attempt brain surgery.

Hundreds of people began to pray for his recovery. What followed was a series of one miracle after another.

Ian, a ten-year-old friend of the family, offered up his first Holy Communion on Saturday, May 4. Ian’s uncle was my husband’s physician and at the time that Ian was receiving Holy Communion, my husband miraculously woke up from the coma.

Through what I firmly believe to be divine intervention, my husband was transferred to Keck Hospital of USC where doctors were able to seal the brain aneurysm with a coil (a newly pioneered technique at the time) instead of open-brain surgery.

He spent the next four weeks in intensive care. He did not recognize anyone, not even me, his wife.  He developed multiple complications, and doctors at Keck wanted to wait for him to stabilize before placing a shunt in his brain, as he was draining more than 90% of his brain fluid into the external bag. 

I questioned several neurosurgeons about the idea of attempting surgery on such a sick man. They all said that he would definitely need such a surgery — to which I would reply that we were praying for his recovery without a shunt.

It was easy to see that we were praying: a Norbertine priest said Mass daily in his room, a priest of Opus Dei visited him daily, and the room was decorated with holy cards of Blessed Alvaro del Portillo and Saint Josemaria Escriva, among many others.

On May 12, Mother’s Day, the doctors came in to inform me that he had taken a turn for the worst. He had developed meningitis and they would not be able to place the much-needed shunt, which put him at greater danger of developing another infection.

To make matters worse, he was not responding to antibiotics. Nothing seemed to bring the fever down, so he was placed on an ice blanket in an effort to reduce his temperature. I asked again if the shunt was necessary and doctors told me that it was not only necessary, but urgent. I asked about his prognosis and the doctors were clear that he would likely never walk nor recognize people.

It was then that I remembered the relic at the San Fernando Mission.

Our family attended Mass at the mission and my husband was a Eucharistic minister. So I asked Msgr. Francis J. Weber, the archivist for the Archdiocese, whether he could bring the relic. He came to the hospital on May 15 and blessed my husband with the only piece of the tilma in existence outside of Mexico.

I was sure that Our Lady would work a miracle!  My husband had a tube coming out of his head and multiple IV’s. He was on an ice blanket. He had a brain infection, pancreatitis, and hepatitis, and he was not responding to treatment.

On Thursday, the doctor noted that my husband was draining only 50% cerebral fluid into the bag, only 25% on Friday, and nothing by Sunday. We had a miracle!

On Monday, a team of about 15 neurosurgeons and students came in to examine my husband and take a look at his medical record. Though he was not quite “out of the woods” and still in intensive care at that moment, the lead neurosurgeon said he did not have a medical explanation for the healing. 

The impossible became possible and my husband would not need a shunt. 

“Mrs. Cornejo, I don’t know who you prayed to, but if I ever need a miracle, I’ll be calling you,” the doctor said.

My husband began to recover by leaps and bounds and was home by June 6. We even went on to have another daughter after five straight miscarriages (all of which occurred before Vicente’s illness). We named her Frances Marie, because, after all, we could not leave the Blessed Mother out of her name.

Though he was not able to return to work, seventeen years later Vicente is a loving husband and a joyful father to five children, a devoted parishioner at Guardian Angel in Pacoima, and still a passionate musician.

I put my story into words because we have seen her intercession in our lives, and I look back at my life knowing that we are safe in His arms. Being blessed in a special way by this relic is still possible in this great “City of Angels,” and so I can tell others with confidence: Take your needs to her, she will always be Our Mother. 

That is why tonight, December 11, 2019, Vicente and I will be celebrating the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, where the relic of the tilma is now permanently housed: to thank her and show our love to her.

Zato molim blaženu Mariju vazda Djevicu, sve anđele i svete, i vas, braćo,
da se molite za me Gospodinu, Bogu našemu.

A couple of days earlier, I published a carol with accompanying responses that could be used for the lighting of the Advent wreath. It seems to me that there are some issues around how we do the Advent wreath in church which are worth a follow up post.

O Bože silan, istinit,
Što vladaš redom svemirskim,
Što jutro puniš blistanjem
A podne ognjem plamenim.
Ugasi plamen razdora,
Utišaj vatru požudâ,
Pokloni zdravlje tjelesno
I pravi pokoj srdaca!
Podijeli, Oče milostiv,
I Sine jednak Ocu svom,
Što s njim i s Duhom Presvetim
U kraju vladaš vječitom. Amen.
ili
Gle, šesti čas je došao:
Na molitvu nas poziva
Da žarkim duhom prožeti
Nebeskog tvorca slavimo.
Jer sad se svima vjernima
Po snazi križa presvetog
I žrtvom svetog Jaganjca
Spas, slava višnja dariva.
Od njenog sjaja blistavog
I samo podne mračno je.
Svim srcem stoga primimo
Dar silne Božje svjetlosti.
Sva slava Ocu vječnomu
I jedinomu Sinu mu
Sa Tješiteljem Presvetim
U vjekovječne vjekove. Amen.
DEVETI ČAS HIMAN
O Stvorče, štono držiš sve,
U sebi što se ne mijenjaš,
A vrijeme trena svakoga
Sunčanim hodom obnavljaš:
Daj svjetlosti nam uvečer
Da život nam ne propada,
Već sretnu smrt nam nagradi
Nebeska slava vječita.
Podijeli, Oče milostiv,
I Sine jednak Ocu svom,
Što s njim i s Duhom Presvetim
U kraju vladaš vječitom. Amen.
ili
Dob dana srednja uminu
Po volji svetoj Gospodnjoj,
Sad uskliknimo pobožno
Jedinstvu, Trojstvu presvetom!
U srcu čistom nosimo
Otajstvo Božje blaženo
Što Petar nam ga predade
Kao znak i zalog spasenja.
Iz duše, braćo, pjevajmo
Kao apostoli nekada
Da mladice još nejake
Porastu snagom Kristovom.
Sva slava Ocu vječnomu
I jedinomu Sinu mu
Sa Tješiteljem Presvetim
U vjekovječne vjekove. Amen.

PSALAM 119 (118), 57−64. VIII. (Het)
Dio je moj, Gospodine − rekoh − *
da tvoje čuvam riječi.
Svim srcem lice tvoje ganuti hoću: *
smiluj mi se po svom obećanju.
Promislio sam putove svoje *
i k tvojem sam svjedočanstvu upravio noge.
Hitam i ne oklijevam *
da zapovijedi tvoje čuvam.
Opletoše me užeta grešnika, *
ali tvoga Zakona ja ne zaboravljam.
U ponoći ustajem da te slavim *
zbog pravednih tvojih odluka.
Prijatelj sam svima koji te se boje *
i koji tvoje čuvaju naredbe.
Dobrote tvoje, Gospodine, puna je zemlja; *
nauči me odredbama svojim.
Slava Ocu i Sinu *
i Duhu Svetomu.
Kako bijaše na početku, †
tako i sada i vazda *
i u vijeke vjekova. Amen.
PSALAM 55 (54), 2 – 12 (I) Molitva nakon izdajstva prijateljeva
Juda, poljupcem Sina Čovječjeg predaješ? (Lk 22,48).
Čuj, Bože, molitvu moju, †
ne krij se molbi mojoj: *
obazri se na me i usliši me!
Mučim se u svojoj tjeskobi, †
zbuni me vika dušmanska *
i tlačenje grešničko.
Navališe na me nesrećom, *
bijesno me progone.
Srce mi je ustreptalo, *
i strah me samrtni spopade.
Užas me i trepet hvata, *
groza me obuze.
Zavapih: »O, da su mi krila golubinja, *
odletio bih da otpočinem!
Daleko, daleko bih letio, *
u pustinji se nastanio;
brzo bih potražio sklonište *
od bijesne oluje i vihora.«
Smeti ih, Gospodine, podvoji im jezike, *
jer nasilje i svađu vidim u gradu;
danju i noću zidinama kruže; *
bezakonja su i nevolje u njemu.
Usred njega zasjede, *
s ulica mu tlačenje i podlost ne odlaze.
Slava Ocu i Sinu *
i Duhu Svetomu.
Kako bijaše na početku, †
tako i sada i vazda *
i u vijeke vjekova. Amen.
PSALAM 55 (54), 13-15. 17 – 24 Molitva nakon izdajstva prijateljeva
Juda, poljupcem Sina Čovječjeg predaješ? (Lk 22,48).
Da me pogrdio dušmanin, *
bio bih podnio;
da se digao na me koji me mrzi, *
pred njim bih se sakrio.
Ali ti, ti si to bio, meni jednak, *
prijatelj moj, moj pouzdanik
s kojim sam slatko drugovao, *
i složno hodismo u Domu Božjemu.
A ja ću Boga prizvati, *
i Gospodin će me spasiti.
Večerom, jutrom i o podne tužan ću jecati, *
i on će čuti vapaj moj.
Dat će mi mira od onih koji me progone: *
jer mnogi su protiv mene.
Bog će čuti i njih poniziti, *
onaj koji kraljuje odvijeka.
Jer se ne popravljaju, Boga se ne boje, †
podižu ruke na prijatelje, *
savez svoj oskvrnjuju.
Usta su im glađa od maslaca, *
a srce ratoborno;
riječi blaže od ulja, *
a oni — isukani mačevi.
Povjeri Gospodinu svu svoju brigu †
i on će te pokrijepiti: *
neće dati da ikada posrne pravednik.
A njih ti, o Bože, strmoglavi *
u jamu grobnu!
Krvoloci i varalice ni polovicu dana neće doživjeti! *
A ja se u tebe uzdam!
Slava Ocu i Sinu *
i Duhu Svetomu.
Kako bijaše na početku, †
tako i sada i vazda *
i u vijeke vjekova. Amen.

OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE
Our Lady of Guadalupe
Patroness of Latin America
(1531)
One of the most beautiful series of apparitions of the Queen of Heaven occurred on the American continent on a December day of 1531, only ten years after the Spanish conquest. A fervent Christian Indian in his fifties, Juan Diego, a widower, was on his way to Mass in Mexico City from his home eight miles distant, a practice he and his wife had followed since their conversion, in honor of Our Lady on Her day, Saturday. He had to pass near the hill of Tepeyac, and was struck there by the joyous song of birds, rising up in the most melodious of concerts; he stopped to listen. Looking up to the hilltop, he perceived a brilliant cloud, surrounded by a light brighter than a fiery sun, and a gentle voice called him by name, saying, Juan, come. His first fear was transformed into a sweet happiness by this voice, and he mounted the slope. There he beheld the One he had intended to honor by hearing Her Mass. She was surrounded by a radiance so brilliant it sent out rays that seemed to transform the very rocks into scintillating jewels.
Where are you going, My child? She asked him. To Saint James to hear the Mass sung by the minister of the Most High in honor of the Mother of the Saviour. That is good, My son; your devotion is agreeable to Me, as is also the humility of your heart. Know then that I am that Virgin Mother of God, Author of Life and Protector of the weak. I desire that a temple be built here, where I will show Myself to be your tender Mother, the Mother of your fellow citizens and of all who invoke My name with confidence. Go to the bishop and tell him faithfully all you have seen and heard.
Juan continued on his way, and the bishop, Monsignor Juan de Zumarraga, a Franciscan of great piety and enlightened prudence, heard him kindly and asked questions, but sent him home without any promises. Juan was disappointed, but on his way past the hill, he once again found the Lady, who seemed to be waiting for him as though to console him. He excused himself for the failure of his mission, but She only repeated Her desire to have a temple built at this site, and told him to return again to the bishop. This he did on the following day, begging the bishop to accomplish the desires of the Virgin. Monsignor said to him: If it is the Most Holy Virgin who sends you, She must prove it; if She wants a church, She must give me a sign of Her will. On his way home, Juan Diego found Her again, waiting, and She said to him, Come back tomorrow and I will give you a certain mark of the truthfulness of your words.
The next day Juan was desolate to find his uncle, with whom he lived, fallen grievously sick; the old gentleman was clearly on the brink of death. Juan had to go and find a priest in the city. As he was passing the hill, Our Lady again appeared to him, saying, Do not be anxious, Diego, because of your uncle’s illness. Don’t you know that I am your Mother and that you are under My protection? At this moment your uncle is cured. Then please give me the sign you told me of, replied Juan. Mary told him to come up to the hilltop and cut the flowers he would find there, place them under his cloak, and bring them to Her. I will tell you then what to do next. Juan found the most beautiful of roses and lilies, and chose the most fragrant ones for Mary. She made a bouquet of them and placed it in a fold of his cloak or tilma — a large square of coarse cloth resembling burlap. Take these lilies and roses on My behalf to the bishop, She said. This is the certain sign of My will. Let there be no delay in raising here a temple in My honor. With joy Juan continued on to the city and the bishop’s residence, where he had to wait nearly all day in the antechamber. Other visitors noted the fragrance of his flowers, and went so far as to open his mantle to see what he was carefully holding in it, but found only flowers pictured on the cloth. When finally he was admitted to the presence of the prelate, he opened his cloak and the fresh flowers fell on the floor. That was not the only sign; on his cloak there was imprinted a beautiful image of the Virgin. It remains today still visible in the Cathedral of Mexico City, conserved under glass and in its original state, having undergone no degeneration in 470 years.
Juan found his uncle entirely cured that evening; he heard him relate that Our Lady had cured him, and had said to him also: May a sanctuary be raised for Me under the name of Our Lady of Guadalupe. The bishop lost no time in having a small church built at the hill of Tepeyac, and Juan Diego himself dwelt near there to answer the inquiries of the pilgrims who came in great numbers. In effect, nearly all of the land became Catholic in a few years’ time, having learned to love the gentle Lady who like God their Father showed Herself to be the ever-watchful friend of the poor. In 1737 the pestilence ceased immediately in Mexico city after the inhabitants made a vow to proclaim Our Lady of Guadalupe the principal Patroness of New Spain. In 1910 She was proclaimed by Saint Pius X Celestial Patroness of all Latin America. Recent studies of the image of Our Lady on the tilma have discovered in one of Her eyes the portrait of Juan Diego, the son She chose to favor by this triduum of heavenly apparitions and conversations.
