Pope Francis celebrated Dec. 12 Mass in St. Peter's Basilica for the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, at which the pope mentioned that through the apparition, Mary revealed herself to be the mother of all humanity.
In his off-the-cuff homily, the pope talked about three aspects of Our Lady of Guadalupe: that she was a woman, a mother, and a mestiza.
While Christians have honored Mary under many titles, the Pope said, "nothing else is needed" than to remember her as a woman of holiness, an example for all woman, a faithful disciple of Christ, Pope Francis said.
"It is that simple," the pope added.
