Our Lady of Guadalupe & Saint Juan Diego
Hi, I am Our Lady of Guadalupe!
I am the Patroness of the Americas and of Mexico. I appeared to Saint Juan Diego and asked for a church to be built in my honor, but the bishop did not believe him. I told Juan Diego to gather roses and when he opened his cloak and released them before the bishop, my image appeared on his cloak. My image is now Mexico’s most popular symbol.
Hi, I am Saint Juan Diego!
One day, while I was walking to mass, a beautiful woman appeared to me. It was Our Lady of Guadalupe. She asked me to bring a special message to the bishop. Our Lady wanted a chapel to be built on Tepeyac Hill. Sadly, the bishop did not believe me. Our Lady told me to gather flowers in my tilma and bring them to the bishop. When I opened my cloak for the bishop, the roses fell down and a beautiful image of Our Lady of Guadalupe appeared on it. The bishop knew that Mary had truly appeared to me and a chapel was built in her honor!
