(Apparition in Mexico)
In the year 1531, the Virgin Mary appeared before an Indian man named Juan Diego as a young girl in Mexican clothing, and asked for a church to be built on the hill where she appeared.
A Bishop who Juan Diego approached was initially doubtful and asked for proof of Mary’s appearance. Mary provided it through a miracle. She asked Juan to climb a hill that was covered in snow and ice at the time and to gather some flowers.
This he did, and he found fresh, fragrant roses blooming at the top of the icy hill. He gathered some in the skirts of Tilmàtli that he wore. Mother Mary helped him to pack them, wrap them in the shroud, and bring them to the Bishop.
When Juan Diego laid the flowers before Bishop’s feet and those of his retinue, on the inner side of the Tilmàtli they saw the image of Mary’s face.
That image of Mother Mary was kept in the small church built on the Mountain Tepeyacac. In 1976 a basilica was rebuilt there, in which the perfectly preserved shroud of Mary continues to be displayed.
