Historical Background for the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe


In 1531 the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to a poor Aztec Indian named Juan Diego. This encounter not only changed his life, but the life of an entire nation, as well as countless millions of people down through the centuries.
 
The Spanish missionaries, who had accompanied the conquistadors, labored for decades to bring the Gospel Message to the native people, but had made few inroads. In an incredible turn of events, the Mother of God herself came as the special messenger of God's love and mercy. Appearing to Juan Diego, a convert to the faith, she asked that a church be built in her honor.
 
As proof of her presence she left a miraculous imprint of herself on the tilma (or cloak) of Juan Diego. The original image almost 500 years old now! - has been carefully preserved and is on display for public veneration in the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City. (See photo by Jan Zatko at left.)
 
 
 
 
 
Upon seeing the image of Our Lady, the Aztec people entered the Catholic Church in astounding numbers approximately six million converted in the span of six years!
