 The Legendary 16th-Century Apparition

In 1531, the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to the devout peasant Juan Diego in Tepeyac Hill in Mexico City. It is said that she asked him to visit the local bishop and tell him that the Virgin Mary wanted a church built in her honor on the hill. Juan Diego did what he was asked and it is said that a miracle occurred when he opened his cloak and revealed a painting of Our Lady as she had appeared to him.

This painting, now known as the Tilma of Juan Diego, is housed at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City and has become an iconic symbol of faith for millions of Catholics around the world. Every December, millions of pilgrims make the journey to the shrine to celebrate Our Lady’s apparition and pay homage to her image from Juan Diego’s Tilma as well as other religious art.
