Just caught the promotional clip on EWTN. Apparently, this program will also cover how astronomers have also lent credence to the tilma. Should be interesting.
I never have understood why her image is in all of the taverns, cat houses. I heard a Jewish businessman tell me in Acapulco before the gal ‘turned her trick’, she crossed herself and asked the Virgin to help. Funny, I went to Medellin Spain, turns out Hernan Cortez also was fond as he was baptized in the Virgin of Guadalupe Cathedral in Spain. Wasn’t so much a Mexican miracle. It was 1542 that Cortez got bit by a scorpion and he said the Virgen in Medellin heard his cry and saved his life. He went back to Spain and gave her 60 lbs. of sterling silver, and a gold scorpion with emeralds... Juan Diego looks more like Hernan Cortez, never heard of an INDIAN Mexican with hair on the chin. But, people will believe what ever they are told.
