JESUS, MARY, VIRGIN OF GUADALUPE,
AND ALL SAINTS.
Mexico is very religious. We are mainly
Catholics and we believe too much in God, Jesus, The Virgin Mary, in their
many ways as , The Virgin of Guadalupe in our case. God sent her in
1547 to stay and be the Mother of all Mexicans, She was to be
call Virgin of Guadalupe that means " that, that can defeat the devil".
The story of our Virgin of Guadalupe is
really nice. Here is a short version.
One day a Mexican Indian called Diego was
walking near the place called Tlatelolco (that still remains, being part of
Mexico City) and all of the sudden a beautiful young lady covered with the
spender of the sun and dressed with a blue tunic that was covered with stars,
appear to him.
This young lady told the Indian that she was the Virgin Mary,
mother of God and her name was Guadalupe and that she would like to have a shrine built for all Mexicans
to be able to go and pray there for all their necessities.
He went, very
obedient to the Bishop at that time called Fry Juan de Sumarraga, Spanish
nun that was the Bishop at that time, but he didn't believe him and
respectfully told Diego to come some other day . He went back home very sad
and the next day he went to the same place, Tlatelolco, to see if he could
see the Lady again, and sure enough their she was.
Diego explained to the Virgin of Guadalupe
that the bishop didn't believe him and to send someone else higher in rank
than him to give the word to the bishop. Guadalupe insisted that he had to
be the one and once again Diego went to the Bishop and told him the wish of
the Virgin of Guadalupe to make a Shrine where all Mexican could go and pray
for their necessities, and he told the Indian to bring a prove of what he
He went back to the Lady of Guadalupe and
told her what the Bishop wanted and she gave the prove to him. This time
when Diego was in front of the Bishop, he told him that he had the prove
that he wanted and all of the sudden he uncovered the tunic that he was
wearing and beautiful roses came out of there plus a beautiful image of the
Virgin of Guadalupe.
The Bishop, when he saw the beautiful image on the
Tunic, he kneeled in front of her and apologized to Diego for not believing
in him and started to do the Shrine of Guadalupe.
Up to date we still can see
the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe at the beautiful Shrine of
Guadalupe. This Shrine is visited by millions of people all over the world,
specially by the faith of Mexicans that come everyday to ask the Virgin of
Guadalupe for miracles of health, finances and others. The Virgin Mother of
God always listens and help their people right away.
Also Mexico have faith in Saint like St.
Jude, Sacred Heart of God and Mary, St. Charbell, Holly Family and others
