Our Lady of Guadalupe

The captivating signs from the Queen of heaven...

Our Lady of Guadalupe appeared in Mexico as the pregnant Mother of God to Saint Juan Diego, a Chicemeca Indian, on December 9, 10 and 12, 1531. She left a Miraculous Image of her appearance on his cactus fiber cloak, or "tilma", which still exists today for all to see in the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City.

"Call me and call my image Santa Maria de Guadalupe".It's believed that the word Guadalupe was actually a Spanish mis-translation of the local Aztec dialect. The word that Mary probably used was Coatlallope which means "one who treads on snakes"!

She also left for us an image of herself imprinted miraculously on the native's tilma, a poor quality cactus-cloth, which should have deteriorated in 20 years but shows no sign of decay 476 years later and still defies all scientific explanations of its origin.It apparently even reflects in Her eyes what was in front of her in 1531.Her message of love and compassion, and her universal promise of help and protection to all mankind,

She appeared on December 12, 1531 and the stars that she wore are the constellations of the stars that appeared in the sky that day!

Some consider it miraculous that the tilma maintains its structural integrity after nearly 500 years, since replicas made with the same type of materials lasted only about 15 years before disintegrating.. Richard Kuhn, who received the 1938 Nobel Chemistry prize, is said to have analyzed a sample of the fabric in 1936 and said the tint on the fabric was not from a known mineral, vegetable, or animal source. In 1979 Philip Serna Callahan studied the icon with infrared light and stated that portions of the face, hands, robe, and mantle appeared to have been painted in one step, with no sketches or corrections and no apparent brush strokes.

A new and interesting kind of analysis of the eyes started in 1979, when Dr. Jose Aste Tonsmann, Ph D, graduated from Cornell University, while working in IBM scanned at very high resolutions a very good photograph, taken from the original, of the face on the tilma. After filtering and processing the digitized images of the eyes to eliminate "noise" and enhance them, he reports he made some astonishing discoveries: not only the "human bust" was clearly present in both eyes, but another human figures were seen as reflected in the eyes too.

Galatians 1:8
But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed.

2 Corinthians 11:13-15
And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.

  1. Are you saying sir that Our Lord cannot produce a miracle? Even with scientific proof you are a scoffer?
    She happens to be Jesus' Mother - the Mother of God! How dare you malign her!
    All of your bogus stories from heretics will not cover the truth! She is the MOTHER OF GOD! GOD CAN AND DOES DO MIRACLES AND THIS IS ONE OF THEM!

  2. Bridget is an old nemesis.
    According to her, and pope felix III (an undertaker no less, lol),her partner, you must be a jew hating, Bush hating,goddess worshiping. medievel papist to be saved.
    Their blog is a joke.
    As a former roman catholic I assure you all that these people proclaim another Jesus and another gospel.
    Mary of the scriptures is the mother of Jesus of Nazerath. The fact that he is God comes from His father. God had no mother.

    Okay everyone sing....... Ave Maria.....

  3. If Mary appeared as a pregnant woman, who was the baby she was pregnant with? Who was its father?
