Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, December 12

To commemorate the Feast with your family the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops recommends "
Share a special breakfast of hot chocolate and pan de dolce. Place some flowers (roses are traditional, but any flower is fine) before the family's statue of Mary."
