Our Lady of Guadalupe Print
Our Lady of Guadalupe
Feast Day: December 12
Patroness of the Americas
Our Lady appeared to St. Juan Diego in 1531 in Tepeyac Hill, Mexico. During her first apparition, she requested that a shrine be built. She then appeared again, during which she told St. Juan Diego collect roses as a sign for the bishop. As he opened his cloak, roses fell to the floor, revealing an image of a young, pregnant woman of Aztec descent encircled by rays of light, which resulted in the conversion of thousands of Aztecs.
