The Church investigates apparitions. Some they investigate and believe are supernatural they say are 'worthy of belief', this is the case with Our Lady of Guadalupe. Others, they dismiss entirely, and there are miriad that have been dismissed. We wait for the Church's decision on the matter. That is why we are careful when such things occur.
By the way, have you ever studied the tilma for yourself?

no I havent ..and I mean no disrespect...I've had a bit of a bad morning so I am being a smartA$$. But I was married to a Hispanic woman for 10 years and her very Catholic mother was in to worshipping all these different "Our Lady of This and That" apparitions....they were popping up all over the place....and some of them were, as i stated in my earlier post, on tree trunks, fogged glass, and yes...even cinnamon rolls...A cinnamon roll had an anamoly on it that looked like on of these "lady apparitions" on it, it was stuffed into a glass case and the faithful lined up for miles to pay homage to Our Lady of the Cinnamon Roll....It just seems like it's polytheistic as opposed to monotheistic...I choose to go by the words of Jesus Christ and he never told me to worship his earthly mom. He told me to follow him. And seeing as how he defeated death and was resurrected, i think I'll take his word for it.
