Our Lady of Guadalupe
The Blessed Virgin Mary, Our Lady of Guadalupe, the Mother of the True God for whom one lives, appeared on the Tepeyac hill four times, between December 9th and 12th, in 1531, to the indigenous Juan Diego. Her image, which was miraculously engraved on the cloack, is the bearer of a great heavenly message, inculturating the Gospel in our lands.
Contemplating and studying it, in an atmosphere of prayer, each of the symbolic elements that make it up make it an inexhaustible source of theological content and we better understand how the conversion to Christianity of the inhabitants of these lands was possible, supporting the missionary work of the evangelizers from Europe. But, above all, we discover her presence among us and through our history as a people and, even more so, as a continent, that the Guadalupe event is irrefutable proof of God's love and predilection for us. Today we have to be bearers of this message in our here and now to the new generations.
