A symbol of hope, female empowerment, liberation… Today we celebrate the Virgin of Guadalupe. Hundred of thousands flock to churches, festivals to watch performances or pay tribute to the Virgin of Guadalupe.
“ In colonial times the Virgin of Guadalupe was interpreted as a native, loving and forgiving mother, the intercessor to God the Father and his son, Jesus Christ.”
However in today’s modern world.. Guadalupe can easily be spotted on taxis, keychains, tee-shirts, boxing kitten jackets ; ).
According to a legend first published in 1648, in 1531 the Virgin Mary appeared in the form of a young mestizo woman to the neophyte Indian Juan Diego on Tepeyac hill, the location of Tonantzin’s shrine. Between December 9 and 12, the Virgin of Guadalupe continued to appear and requested through Juan Diego that a church dedicated to her be built on the site. When the bishop-elect of Mexico City, Juan de Zumárraga, demanded proof, the Virgin told Juan Diego to gather roses from a nearby hillside, put them into his tilma (cloak) and bring them to the bishop. When the roses where released, the Virgin’s image was imprinted on the tilma, which now hangs in the Basilica in Mexico City and is an object of veneration, daily devotion, and a major pilgrimage site.
