This is a Catholic question, I have been around apologetics enough, answered enough questions with my friends of other faiths that that is all basically ground already covered. I'd appreciate mainly answers to the questions at hand.
Also, I have asked this in other venues and have not received any satisfactory answers really and have even tried to get it to some "experts" like Karl Keating but that has been a bit time consuming.
This is no big deal but I have wondered and I thank you for your time.

Here is a lot of information on Our Lady of Guadalupe. It is a miracle -- not a painting. How could basic material still be there today? Much like the Shroud of Turnin still here today.
DEVOTIONAL PRAYER TO OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE
O Virgin Mother of Guadalupe, you wanted to show your compassion to all who solicit your help. Hear the petitions we present to you.
Patroness of the Philippines, we pray for peace, justice and prosperity for our country and for all the countries of the world. Mother of fair love, protect our families. Keep them united in love and watch over our children. Put an end to the sacrifice of innocent lives as you did in Mexico.
Mother of the Church, grant us abundant vocations of priests, religious and laity. We pray to you especially for our Holy Father, Pope John Paul II, and all bishops. Grant us a great love for all the sacraments, the signs of God's great mercy.
Thus we will be able to bring all, true peace through Our Lord Jesus Christ, who with God the Father and the Holy Spirit, lives and reign forever and ever.

( With God all things are possible.)
Just a suggestion - next time you might want to put a ‘Caucus’ designation on a thread like this.

I don’t doubt that there were those questioning, taking the side of “devil’s advocate” (as someone was required to do in those days), or simply not believing at first the apparition at Guadalupe, just as there were people who didn’t believe St. Bernadette at Lourdes many centuries later.
