Our Lady of Guadalupe appeared to St. Juan Diego in 1531, speaking in his native language and requesting that he go to the head of the church in Mexico and ask that a church be built in the place where she appeared. Juan Diego faced rejection and later was tested by having to persuade Bishop Juan de Zumárraga of the miraculous apparition. Mary offered him consolation and guidance. Faithfully following her instructions, Juan Diego went to the top of a hill, where he found his sign—a garden of roses in a typically barren spot. He picked the roses and brought them back to the Virgin Mary, who arranged them in his cloak. When Juan Diego returned to the bishop to present the roses and retell the story of Mary’s appearance, another miracle occurred. Mary’s image appeared on the cloak. Convinced by the miracles that Mary was indeed present, the bishop had a church built as she had asked. Juan Diego’s cloak was placed above the altar, where it is still displayed. For many, Our Lady of Guadalupe has been a source of strength, protection, and encouragement to remain faithful through trials and hardship.
