History of Our Lady of Guadalupe
Our Lady of Guadalupe
Paton of the Americas. Compassionate Mother of God.
Juan Diego was on his way to Mass on December 9, 1531, when he heard someone sweetly calling his name from atop Tepeyac Hill, near the small Mexican village of Tlaltelolco. Once he climbed the hill he saw a beautiful Mexican girl who identified herself ad the ever-Virgin Mary. She asked him to build a church ono the hill to express the special love she had for the Mexican natives. She instructed Juan to first get permission from the bishop, who upon hearing Juan's story asked for a tangible sign that she was the Mother of God. The next day, Juan gathered roses in his over coat, or tilma; to bring to the bishop as a sign. Just as he untied the corners of his coat, the bishop knelt before him in tears. For there, on the front of Juan's coat, was her image, exactly as he had seen her. In only thirteen days, a small chapel was completed in honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe, and the tilma was carried forward in a festive procession; in the seven years that followed eight million natives were baptized.
Today an average of 1,500 people daily kneel before the tilma, which has sustained its perfect image for almost 500 years, at the basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City.
