Dear friends, this morning we removed the relic of the tilma of Saint Juan Diego from its permanent case at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, so that it may be venerated by the thousands of faithful at the Coliseum during the Guadalupe Celebration on Aug. 5.

The people of Los Angeles have a great love and devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe. The Guadalupe Celebration on Aug. 5 will be a living testimony of the message of Our Lady of Guadalupe uniting people from all walks of life and from all backgrounds and cultures in celebration of our faith.
