Saint Josemaría began a novena in the Basilica of Guadalupe in Mexico, to pray for world peace, the Church and the Pope. He told the people there: “I have come to see Our Lady of Guadalupe, and to see you as well. You’re not upset about coming in the second place, are you?” And he added later: “I haven’t come here to teach, but to learn.”
