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.
