20th Century Guadalajara

Ramón López. Sermón predicado en la Catedral de Guadalajara por el Sr. Canonigo Dr. D. Ramón López, el 8 de Diciembre de 1903, al inaugurarse las fiestas del año jubilar de la definición dogmática de la inmaculada concepción de María Santísima. Guadalajara: Impr. de Ancira y Hno. Sucs., 1904. (Pamphlet, [2], 21, [3], [additional copy attached], 21cm x 15cm)

Although most of the articles in the Bridwell collection were printed in Mexico City, the collection also contains a sizable stock of Guadalajara imprints, most of which date from the first half of the twentieth century, including four sermons by Ramón López.  This sermon, preached on the feast day of the Immaculate Conception of Mary, discusses that subject, elaborating on the victory over original sin that the Virgin’s Immaculate Conception signified.  He also eulogizes Pope Pius IX, a faithful devotee of the Virgin Mary who, on December 8, 1854, proclaimed the Immaculate Conception of Mary to be official dogma of the Catholic Church in front of over 200 cardinals and bishops.
