The Narciso Martinez Cultural Arts Center
"Guadalupe - Looking Deeper"
a lecture by Fr. Michael Seifert
and closing reception for "Guadalupe" art exhibition
Thurs. Jan. 20, 2005 - 7:00 PM
225 E. Stenger Street
San Benito, TX
The image of Our Lady of Guadalupe is arguably the icon of Mexican culture throughout the world. Taking a historical recording of the apparition of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Fr. Seifert will explore the interpretations of the Aztec symbols found in this legend. While for more than 500 years the figure has inspired the deepest reverence amongst her devotees, Seifert will argue that the image serves as a lasting interpretation of the Magnificat (Luke 1:46) and is a call for social transformation.
Fr. Michael Seifert, MS is a Marist priest who serves as pastor at San Felipe de Jesus Church in Brownsville, located in Cameron Park colonia.
