MEDIA REVIEWS
The Treasure of Guadalupe reveals not only new connections between Guadalupe and the Gospel, but also the hidden treasure to be discovered when we hear the Gospel proclaimed by women, the poor, and members of diverse cultural communities. Guadalupe's 'inculturated evangelization' is a gift to all the peoples of the Americas-a gift that is at the same time a challenge to our understanding of the Gospel and our way of life. -- Mary Catherine Hilkert, OP, President, Catholic Theological Society of America and professor of theology, University of Notre Dame
The book offers the redeeming encounter of Juan Diego with La Morenita. The reader cannot avoid entering the Mystery of the Incarnation in the New Birth in the American Continent. I experienced with these homilies 'the leap of joy' that liberates into action for the exigencies of discipleship in the Church of the United States and for this century. It's a treasure for all who minister! -- Alicia C. Marill, D. Min., Director of Doctor of Ministry Program, Barry University
The common thread that holds this collection of writings together is a profound and loving regard for Our Lady of Guadalupe. Prominent thinkers on US Hispanic culture and faith have contributed their genius to produce an anthology rich in prophetic, inspiring, and challenging insights. -- Rev. Ricardo Ramirez, Bishop, Diocese of Las Cruces, New Mexico
Many will find this collection of homilies, meditations, and illustrations on the Guadalupan tradition a rich source for prayer and reflection-especially preachers. Through their homilies and essays the contributors to this book can help preachers make the links between God's Word and our lives that are so essential for good preaching. -- Jude Siciliano, OP, Preacher and Instructor in Homiletics, Dominican Friars of Raleigh
