“Guadalupe Milagro de Las Rosas”

On December 9, 1531 Our Lady of Guadalupe first appeared to the peasant Juan Diego on the outskirts of Mexico City. Our Lady told Diego to have the local bishop build a church at this site, when the local Spanish bishop demanded proof of the apparition, Guadalupe instructed Juan Diego to climb to the top of the hill of Tepeyac and pick Roses and present them to the bishop, the miraculous presence of the roses in the middle of winter is a sign of the presence of the divinity. It was on Juan Diego’s cloak that the Virgin of Guadalupe miraculously imprinted her image.

“Que la Virgen de Guadalupe siempre te cuide”

(May the Virgin of Guadalupe always take care of you)

For 500 years “Guadalupe,” has been a symbol of hope and promise and inclusion in a blending of cultures as the patron of the Americas. Our Lady of Guadalupe is a reminder of love and protection to every human being regardless of ethnicity or social status seeking a better life. She has never been more relevant than with the recent struggles of immigration today.
