The Conclusion focuses on a theme that spans across all the chapters of the book and offers a more extensive definition of what the author calls Mexican Catholic imagination. The chapter discusses the broader implications this study has for the advancement of the study of lived religion, feminist research, and pastoral work. The author also proposes the concept of (fe)minism as a useful theoretical lens to understand what religious beliefs and social circumstances propel women to exercise their agency on behalf of themselves and their children. Finally, the author suggests a series of questions to consider for further development of Our Lady of Guadalupe studies.
