Sacred Heart class depicts apparition
Irene Salazar portrays the Virgen de Guadalupe in Floresville.
The faith formation class of Sacred Heart Catholic Church helped celebrate the apparition of the Virgen de Guadalupe to a Nagual Indian named Juan Diego.
Braving a cold clear night, the faithful gathered in the courthouse square in downtown Floresville. From there, the Knights of Columbus, along with Matachines and many parishioners, followed the Virgen de Guadalupe, played by Irene Salazar. Juan Diego was played by Dante.
As they walked, they prayed the rosary in the virgin’s honor. They entered the church in procession, and a play depicting the apparition of the Virgen de Guadalupe to Juan Diego was presented to the Rev. Frank Kurzaj and the parishioners gathered there. A Mass followed the play.
The Matachines, or guards, danced in honor of la Virgen, along with El Viejo de La Danza, La Malinche, and a drummer. The evening ended with a reception in the church hall.
