Virgin of Juquila, Oaxaca, Mexico

It is celebrated on the 8th of December and many traditional Mexican dances and festivities are held there. Its cult is preceded only by that of the Virgin of Guadalupe and the Virgin of San Juan de los Lagos. A prayer is a way of communicating with God, a saint or a deceased person, either to bow down, make a request or ask for a favour, or simply to say what a person is thinking or feeling. Prayers have already been written down by the Church and can take two forms: as a devotion or practice of piety that is done individually or collectively, publicly or privately; and the second form is a ritual in which a series of phrases must be recited or repeated by the individual or the whole congregation.
