Our Lady Of Guadalupe: Five Centuries Of Devotion

by Ana Caputo |

Our Lady of Guadalupe, also known as the Virgin of Guadalupe (Virgen de Guadalupe), is a Roman Catholic title of the Blessed Virgin Mary associated with a venerated image enshrined within the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City.

According to tradition the Virgin Mary appeared in 1531 to an indigenous peasant, Juan Diego, who saw the glowing figure of the Virgin Mary on a hillside near present-day Mexico City. After she had identified herself to him, Our Lady asked that Juan build her a shrine in that same spot. Juan Diego informed his local bishop, who didn’t believe him and asked to provide proof of the apparitions.Virgen de Guadalupe Medal Virgin Mary Pendant BraceletJuan Diego returned to the hill. The Virgin appeared again and told him to pick some flowers to present to the Archbishop. He arranged the flowers in his tilma (cloak). When he presented the tilma to the Archbishop, both discovered a life-size image of the Virgin Mary on the inside of the cloak. This image is known as Our Lady of Guadalupe.

The Virgin of Guadalupe is considered the patron saint of Mexico. Also known as the brown-skinned virgin, she is depicted with brown skin, an angel and moon at her feet and rays of sunlight that encircle her.
