A great sign appeared in the sky, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet,
and on her head a crown of twelve stars”
~ Revelation 12:1
I just love her. The Patroness of the Americas. This is the only apparition where Our Lady left an actual picture of herself!
On December 12, 1531, her image was imprinted on the tilma (or cloak) of St. Juan Diego. Now, nearly 500 years later, it is still perfectly preserved!
And so many interesting scientific discoveries surrounding this image...
Go ahead, search it.
Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us!
“Listen and let it penetrate your heart…do not be troubled or weighed down with grief. Do not fear any illness or vexation, anxiety or pain. Am I not here who am your Mother? Are you not under my shadow and protection? Am I not your fountain of life? Are you not in the folds of my mantle? In the crossing of my arms? Is there anything else you need?”
