Pope to honor Our Lady of Guadalupe by celebrating a 'Creole Mass'

2014-12-11

Friday, December 12th is the day of Our Lady of Guadalupe, patroness of the Americas and commonly referred to as the Queen of Mexico. 

To mark the occasion, Pope Francis will celebrate a Mass in her honor, in St. Peter's Basilica.

"More than 750 priests will concelebrate the Mass with Pope Francis. In fact, many Cardinals and Bishops will travel to Rome, specifically to take part in this celebration.” 

But this won't be your typical celebration, rather it will be a so called 'Creole Mass.' The style combines indigenous instruments and rhythms with prayers in Spanish. 

One of the singers, will be Argentinian Patricia Sosa

"I still feel like I'm dreaming. I get nervous and anxious and then I just tell myself to relax, even though I still can't believe I'm here.” 

Devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe has long been recognized as a uniting force throughout the Americas. In fact the Mass will televised live by different Spanish language television outlets.

Pontifical Commission for Latin America
"She is the Patroness of the Americas and the queen of the entire continent. In fact, she is also the Patroness of the Philippines.”

Singer
"The Mass will be highly symbolic. Our Lady is the Mother of the Americas and she brings a message of peace. The fact that we will be singing in Spanish along with an Argentinian Pope is incredible. We couldn't ask for more.”

The last time a Creole Mass was celebrated in the Vatican, was roughly three years ago, under the Pontificate of Benedict XVI.
