A turnaround

Tuesday, 4/5/11, 9:30 a.m. -A Hispanic looking couple came down Liberty Avenue. The girl was wearing a shirt with sleeves only to her elbows, no coat or sweater (one of the signs that she is going into a nearby building). As they passed PP I offered them a flyer & they just walked past me. They stopped, realized they had gone too far, and turned around to go into PP. I spoke to them and again offered them literature and they again just walked on past & went into PP. Providentially, Maureen Lingg, from St. Margaret Mary Church, was holding a picture of Our Lady of Guadalupe, and the couple saw it. They were only in PP a couple minutes, then came out and went up Liberty Avenue to their parked car. The girl looked very stressed. I saw them getting into the car. A couple minutes later, I went up to the car to see if they would take some information. Their car was gone, and a lady was getting out of a different car that had just pulled into the spot where their car had been. They did not return. Thinking back, it is possible that the couple refused literature and did not speak because they do not speak or read English. However, the picture of Our Lady of Guadalupe speaks a message of life to all Catholics, especially Hispanic people. Her picture very possibly saved a mom and baby this morning.

    Al and Sally-

    Thank you for sharing this!!! Just today, a man approached us and recommended that we have an image of Our Lady of Guadalupe at the vigil. Perhaps this is confirmation of that.
