Feast Of Our Lady Of Guadalupe

According to tradition, on Dec. 9, 1531, in Mexico, a young indigenous man named Juan Diego saw an image of the Virgin who told him to tell the Catholic bishop to build her a church. The bishop didn't believe him and asked for proof.

When Juan Diego saw the Virgin again and gave her the bishop's message, she told him to return to the hill where he first saw her and bring the flowers there to the bishop as proof that she exists. In winter, the hill of Tepeyac Hill didn't have flowers in bloom, but when Juan Diego arrived, he saw flowers, just as the Virgin promised. He gathered them in his cloak and took them to the bishop.

On Dec. 12, when Juan Diego returned to the bishop and opened his cloak, the flowers fell to the floor. On the cloak remained the image of the Virgin. The cloak now hangs in the Basilica of the Virgin of Guadalupe in Mexico City.
