Are you familiar with the image of Our Lady of Good Counsel?No, I am not. Thanks to Ted Turner, we are EWTN-challenged in NYC. I have been to the basilica in Mexico City, however, and managed to squeeze in between two of the moving observations ramps to pray a 15-decade rosary. I got a good, long look at the tilma. It's beautiful.
The story of Our Lady of Guadalupe is so interesting, especially when Juan Diego is told to pick flowers from the frozen ground. The BVM arranges them in his tilma and sends him back to the bishop to request that a church be built on that spot. This is a painting of Juan Diego showing the tilma, with flowers, to the bishop. Interesting to view the scene, from the bishop's perspective.
