Our Lady of Guadalupe statue is a lovely reminder of our Blessed Mother. She is the patroness of the Americas and patroness of the unborn. When Mary appeared to St. Juan Diego outside of Mexico City, the year was 1531. She left her image on his cloak and that image is preserved today. Our Lady of Guadalupe has Indian and Aztec features. She wears a high band above her waist which indicates that she is pregnant! This image was a pictograph message that converted thousands of people! Our Lady of Guadalupe pray for us.
