Guadalupe: A Living Image

Sun. September 26 at 10 PM ET, Tue. September 28 at 1 PM ET & Thu. September 30 at 5 AM ET

Msgr. Eduardo Chavez, postulator of the cause for canonization of St. Juan Diego, discusses the importance of the Nican Mopohua, a document that presents the original authentic history of the Miracle of Guadalupe.

Narrative of the apparition of the Virgin of Guadalupe

Appearance of the Virgin of Guadalupe

The Nican Mopohua is considered a kind of “gospel” of Mexico, and reports on how the Virgin of Guadalupe in 1531, about ten years after the conquest of Tenochtitlán (Aztec capital), on Mount Tepeyac, where formerly a temple of the Aztec goddess Tonantzin was, on 9, 10 and 12 appeared four times in December the Aztecs baptized Juan Diego (1474-1548).

The phenomenon, which is called the Virgin of Guadalupe, Juan Diego first appeared on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary, 9 December 1531, when this was on the way to Holy Mass and told him to instruct the bishop Zumárraga to build a church in her honor on Tepeyac hill to the north of present-day Mexico City. The bishop, however, believed the words of Juan Diego and asked him not to request the appearance of a character. The appearance to Juan Diego was on the summit of the hill to get there to pick flowers and roses, which grew normally at this point, and left him in his tilma (cloak) lay. When Juan Diego before Zumárraga Bishop and several other witnesses opened his tilma appeared, while the strongly scented flowers fell to the ground, the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe imprinted on the tilma.

“Truth is often lost in poor translation.”

Now *that’s* one of the truest propositions you’re likely to trip over in this life. As we see on line, truth is often lost even when both parties are native speakers of English.

Of all the Apparitions of Our Lady, that of Guadalupe is nearest and dearest to my heart! This looks like a good one, too! Good bless you!
