A Peruvian expert who has been studying the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico for 34 years, says the microscopic figures that appear in her eyes hold a powerful pro-life and pro-family message.
Jose Aste Tonsmann said the tiny images in the eyes include an entire Aztec family and are a sign from the Mother of God about the importance of life and the family at a time when both are under attack worldwide.
During a conference at the Theatrical and Social Cultural Institute in Lima, Tonsmann said a total of 13 figures can be seen in the eyes of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
The six figures that can be seen in area of the cornea are of an Indian who seated, an elderly man believed to be Bishop Juan de Zumarraga, his translator, Juan Gonzalez, St. Juan Diego, a black woman who may have been the bishops housekeeper and who was granted her freedom before his death, and a bearded man of European descent.
Tonsmann said the other seven figures that appear right in the center of Marys gaze appear to be an Indian family.
The young woman in center of the group looking down is the mother. At her side is the father who is wearing a hat and between them are their three children.
The other two figures appear to be an elderly couple and may be the grandparents. They are standing behind the others, and the elderly man is the only figure that appears just in the right eye.
Tonsmann said the diverse group of people that appear in Our Lady of Guadalupes eyes convey a message against racism, something that is increasingly worse in todays world.
It is not a coincidence, he added, that only todays technology has allowed the tiny images to.....

Of course.....this is one heck of an impressive miracle of the blessed mother...
Would be interesting if the actual image were posted. Also a lot more believable, since the technology to “fake” such an image was unavailable at the time. Sounds like it wouldn’t be easy today.
I was hoping there would be a picture. But I guess it would be hard to see.
Just as believable.
Yes. I can see the face in that window! Interesting.
Wouldn't it be a sign at the time when the apparition occurred and the image was presented?
Not that God couldn't look ahead and say, "Someday, people are going to be so messed up that they're going to need a direct supernatural sign to help them recognize the value of natural family formation," and set it up centuries in advance.
Could there be anyone who would learn of this analysis and say, "Wow, it never occurred to me that families of children, parents, and grandparents would be something God considered positive! This changes everything!"?
34 years spent on something with all the informational significance of a "picture" of Jesus on a piece of toast?
Better picture of Her eyes here:
1. Juan Diego unfolding his tilma & wearing a native hat of the period
2. Bishop Zumarraga, staring at the tilma
3. An Aztec servant of the bishop sitting in the style of an Indian
4. A Spaniard of the bishop’s staff
5. A Spaniard who learned the indigenoous language & served as the bishop’s translator
6. A black African female servant girl — documentary evidence shows in fact, that the bishop did have an African female servant.
7. Seven members of an indigenous family — a mother carrying a baby on her back, a father, a grandmother and grandfather, and two young children.
With billions of people being murdered, starved, aborted and corrupted as a result of hate, crime, tyranny, oppression, abortion and liberalism, I find it hard to believe that God would ignore those things and spend his time burning an image of Jesus into a tortilla.

Seems like apophenia to me. Plus, the “enhanced”, retouched images are worthless as evidence. The JFK conspiracists do the same kinds of thing and find “images” of shooters on the grassy knoll.

Tell that to Jesus at the moment of your death. Don’t you realize what you are doing in dissing the Mother of God?
Touché. Point well taken
“Dont you realize what you are doing in dissing the Mother of God?”
Oh sure, anyone who is skeptical of claims of seeing things in an “enhanced” image, is “dissing the Mother of God”. Get off your high horse. The only ones I am “dissing” are hucksters peddling this to an uncritical audience.
