La Virgen de Guadalupe The storey of the Virgen goes back to the year 1531 ,a poor Indian named Juan Diago was walking along a desolate area in Mexico seeking water.Suddenly on a hillside, he saw a vision of a beautiful
woman,who directed him to a spring of fresh cool water, a few days later in the same spot ,the vision appeared again to Juan Diego. This time she instructed him to go to Mexico City to tell the high church officials to build a church in her name on that site.Of course they didn't believe the poor Indian, they asked for proof. When Juan Diego returned to the hillside the Virgin appeared again - he asked her for a sign.Suddenly he saw some beautiful red roses. He gathered them into his rough Indian blanket and took them to Mexico City. When He opened his blanket for the high church officials they fell to their knees in amazement.There imprinted on the humble Indian blanket was the image of the Virgen of Guadalupe.Today ;thousands of devout Catholics make pilgrimages each year to the huge Basilica of the Virgin of Guadalupe in Mexico.
