Tiny Saints Charm - Our Lady of Guadalupe
by St. Patrick's Gifts & Books
In 1531, the Virgin Mary appeared to a Mexican Indian named Juan Diego. When Juan Diego's bishop asked for proof of Mary's appearance, Mary told Juan to gather roses in his tilma (cloak) in the middle of winter. When Juan Diego brought the flowers to the bishop, a miraculous image of Mary appeared on the tilma. Today, the beautiful image is enshrined in Mexico City for all to see.
