It was to the humble Catholic Indian, Juan Diego, that Our Lady of Guadalupe appeared on a hillside near Mexico City in 1531. She performed several miracles ... producing an abundance of Castilian roses in December for Juan to pick and carry to the bishop, who specifically requested this miracle as proof of the apparition. When the roses fell from Juan Diego's cloak (tilma) in front of the bishop, on it was an image of the Lady, herself ... Our Lady of Guadalupe. This brought the bishop and all onlookers to their knees. The cloak, made of cactus fiber, should have disintegrated within 20 years, yet it is still extant today ... nearly 500 years later ... and can be viewed at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City.
