Verse on back story of Our Lady of Guadalupe
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.
