MexGrocer.com takes pride in bringing you beautiful posters of Our Lady of Guadalupe that are digital replicas of the original image on Juan Diego’s cloak that is found at the Basilica of Guadalupe in Mexico City. The posters are the ideal size for any home, church, office or factory, so our Lady of Guadalupe can bless and watch over your family, friends, colleagues and parishioners.
These posters are a reminder of the beautiful miracle that occurred on December 1531 when Our Lady of Guadalupe appeared before an Indian peasant named Juan Diego on the hill of Tepeyac located northwest of Mexico City. The beautiful lady identified herself as the ever virgin Holy Mary, Mother of the True God whom is Creator of all things, Lord of heaven and the earth, she requested him to have the bishop build a temple on the site where she appeared. At first the bishop was unconvinced by Juan Diego’s story of the beautiful lady that appeared to him and asked him to bring a sign the next day of what he had told him. Our Lady of Guadalupe gave the bishop the sign he had asked for by sending Juan Diego with beautiful Castilian roses that she had rearranged in his cloak with her Holy hands. When Juan Diego arrived to see the bishop he released the roses and on his cloak was imprinted the miraculous image of the Virgin of Guadalupe.
Juan Diego’s cloak was made from a low quality cactus-cloth that should have deteriorated in 20 years but till this day it stands at the Basilica exactly how Juan Diego presented it to the bishop 500 years ago and with no signs of decay. Juan Diego’s tilma (cloak) is a beautiful reminder of Our Lady of Guadalupe’s message of love and her promise of helping and protecting all of humanity. The Basilica of Guadalupe that stands exactly where she first appeared to Juan Diego is one of the most visited Catholic Churches in the world. An amazing list of cures, miracles and interventions are attributed to the Virgin of Guadalupe who has protected and comforted mankind just as she promised one December 12th 1531 on the Mount of Tepeyac. Today her beautiful apparition to Juan Diego and the miracle of her image on his cloak is celebrated every December 12th with a mass in her honor where parishioners sing the “Mananitas” and dedicate songs to her.
