JORNALERO'S PRAYER FOR GUADALUPE by jjméndez

Jornalero’s Prayer for Guadalupe

Today I pay tribute to
Tonantzin-Coatlicue  for 
She is the Mother of the Gods, 
Of the waning and waxing moon, 
And of all the stars that paint 
The southern sky.  I pay tribute
For she is also our True Mother.

I acknowledge her presence for 
She is more powerful than 
The jaguar and quicker than 
The mighty eagle.  I acknowledge 
Her presence for she will guide us
Through the desert, mountains, and 
Urban jungles of El Norte.

No matter what path we choose
To follow,  Gran Señora
Protect us from all our 
Adversities and send them
Into the darkest corner 
Of our Mother Earth and keep
Them from doing us harm

Amen.
