La Llegada

Published by Latine Lit in April 2023.

Excerpt from La Llegada:

Tomasa pressed her fingertips to her forehead, brought them down to her chest, reached over, and touched her left shoulder, then her right. After blessing herself, she clasped her hands together and said a quiet prayer to the Virgen de Guadalupe.

“Querida virgencita, be with me in my time of need. Take care of my family and keep us safe. I place myself in your hands.”

A Virgen de Guadalupe candle flickered as she prayed. Tomasa believed in God and Jesus, but when she needed a miracle, her faith was with the Virgen.
