The words that Our Lady of Guadalupe spoke to St. Juan Diego apply to us as well, and we would do well to consider them often, particularly amidst our daily worries:

Listen, put it into your heart,… that the thing that disturbs you, the thing that afflicts you, is nothing. Do not let your countenance, your heart be disturbed…. Am I not here, I, who am your Mother? Are you not under my shadow and protection? Am I not the source of your joy? Are you not in the hollow of my mantle, in the embrace of my arms? Do you need anything more? Let nothing else worry you or disturb you.
