After many prayers and the possibility of involving law enforcement to find the statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe, a breakthrough happened this morning. The statue was located in a warehouse in El Paso. Somebody apparently called FedEx to cancel the pickup of the statue for delivery to Santa Fe, said people at the warehouse. No one knows who called but the Guadalupe pilgrims are not concerned about that because now they need to figure out how to get the statue to Santa Fe.

Five men from the church, including Father Tri, have been dispatched to El Paso to bring La Virgen up north. The men are leaving with a large truck and a trailer and plans to do whatever is necessary to bring their statue to Santa Fe.

Ave Maria Friends in New Mexico!

When Fr. Sanchez sent me the news about Our Lady's disappearance I was distressed as everyone was. In thinking about a possible kidnapping or worse a sale on the black market we agreed that something wonderful would come of this and enhance the journey of Our Lady from Mexico to Santa Fe.

Now we have a rescue mission and a wonderful story to tell the children about our Ladies journey.
And with deep affection, I will now also refer to her as Our Lady of Enchantment the Nuesta SeƱora de Guadalupe...Michelle Plevel Shafer Reno, Nevada
