Our Lady of Guadalupe Documentary to Premiere in DC

Washington D.C., Jan 4, 2013 / 12:04 am (CNA).- A new documentary about the apparition of Our Lady of Guadalupe will premier Jan. 24 in Washington, D.C. and explore how the event helped spread the Catholic faith throughout the Americas.

The trailer for movie “The Blood & The Rose” says Our Lady of Guadalupe “delivered hope” and shared “a message that would change the continent, and the world.”

Director Timothy Watkins said Jan. 2 that the film relates the “fascinating historic details that point to the guidance of Divine Providence.”

“It truly is our story, one that the entire world needs to hear in order to experience the impact of this incredible miracle and its relevance in our age,” he said.

The movie examines the 1531 appearance of the Virgin Mary to the Aztec Juan Diego and the miraculous creation of her image on his cloak, called a tilma. The documentary will also examine scientific investigations of the image on the tilma.

“It’s a privilege to share the complete story of Our Lady of Guadalupe at long last, from the seeds of Catholicism and its amazing journey from the Middle East through Europe, to the miraculous events that set in motion the evangelization of the Americas,” said Watkins, whose previous work includes a documentary about U.S. President Ronald Reagan.

“The Blood & The Rose” is a production of Leo McWatkins Films.

OLOG ping. And Father Pro and I are still praying for your family. I don’t sleep well, so it gives me a focus and keeps me from wasting time.

With Eduardo Verastegui involved in the project, it will probably be VERY well done.

The major miracle for me would be the conversion of more than 8 MILLION people to Christianity due to the appearance of Our Lady of Guadalupe...though there were several other spectacular miracles connected with her visitation.

Truly impressive...and still relatively unknown by many in the United States.

Thank you very much. Her delivery postponed a week or two, but now her disability payment has been cut back (because the kids aren’t with her?) and can’t pay rent. Goodness gracious. Hope the young man and his family step up somehow. Our Lady of Guadalupe, please pray for us. I often wake up during the night and pray also. Her four little kids are at least having a good time here with their big sisters.
