Guadalupe.jpgHillary’s first major gaffe as Secretary of State! It’s not fair, but this is a blog. And the icon of Our Lady of Guadalupe is one of the most famous miracles in the church, the pride of Mexico (and beyond) and the second most visited Catholic shrine in the world. So hat tip to that naughty Andrew Sullivan

Clinton visited the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe during her visit to Mexico (when she said many other admirable things about our own responsibility for the drug trade, I might add), left flowers at the image–“miraculously imprinted by Mary on the tilma, or cloak, of St. Juan Diego in 1531”–then asked the rector, “Who painted it?” The rector responded, “God!” Or, as Sullivan put it, “Doh!”

The Catholic News Agency has the skinny.
