This is the story of Our Lady of Guadalupe!
Patroness of the Americas
Invoked for Special Indulgences
Our Lady of Guadalupe’s story began In 1531. A man named Juan Diego was on his way to Mass. Before he arrived at the Church, Our lady, the Blessed Virgin appeared. She asked for a temple to be built and told Juan to ask Bishop Zumarraga. When Juan met the Bishop, he was skeptical and said he needed a “sign” from Our Lady. Juan left and went to look after his dying Uncle. When his Uncle was close to death, Juan went to find a Priest. Our Lady again appeared to Juan, completely cured his Uncle, and told Juan to go gather roses. He found roses and brought them to Our Lady in his tilma. Our Lady took the tilma with its roses and placed them under cover. She instructed Juan to bring the roses to the Bishop. When the Bishop opened the tilma, he saw shining a beautiful artistic image of Our Lady and started praying immediately. A sign had been given. The temple was built and millions have made pilgrimages asking Our Lady for special favors.
