The History of the Lady of Guadalupe
In December of 1531, Juan Diego, an Aztec Indian living outside of Mexico City, encountered an apparition of the Virgin Mary. She appeared to Juan Diego and instructed him to go to the archbishop and ask that a church be constructed in her honor on the very spot where she appeared to him. Juan Diego did as instructed, but the archbishop was skeptical and asked him for proof. The Virgin appeared to Juan Diego three more times, insisting on the same, and eventually giving him proof of her existence. On Her fourth visit to Juan Diego, She told him that She had healed his dying uncle (to whom she also appeared). She also instructed him to gather flowers on the top of Tepeyak Hill. When Juan Diego went to Tepeyak Hill, he found beautiful Castilian roses, which were not native to the area, and especially not in the month of December. Juan Diego gathered the roses in his cloak and took them to the bishop. Upon opening his cloak for the bishop, an image of Mary was emblazoned on the fabric. A shrine, known as Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, was built on that spot, and Juan Diego's cloak is housed in it. Her Basilica is the most visited Catholic shrine in the world.
