Our Lady of Guadalupe; Symbol of Liberation

The appearance of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico 450 years ago was not an isolated event intended only for Indians, the Mexicans, or Mexican-Americans.

She is just as important today as she was centuries ago, and she is important for everyone, for she has been designated the patroness of all the Americas. When she appeared to the Indian Juan Diego in December 1531 there were no national boundaries in this hemisphere.

When Our Lady of Guadalupe appeared on the hill of Tepeyac she heralded the beginning of a new era, a new civilization that would rise out of the ashes of the Indian civilization that had been destroyed by the Spanish conquerors. She gave birth to a new people - the Mexican people.
