A most significant event in the evangelization of the New World occurred in December 1531. Over the course of four days, the Virgin Mary, under the title of Our Lady of Guadalupe, appeared to an indigenous convert name Juan Diego. As a result of this encounter, and the image miraculously imprinted on Juan Diego’s cloak, nine million Native Americans embraced the Catholic faith, and the Americas began their transformation into the Catholic hemisphere. Our Lady of Guadalupe’ message of love replaced the institutionalized violence of the Aztec culture and built a bridge between the two worlds. Guadalupe: The Miracle and the Message traces the history of this transformative event from the 16th century to the present.
Guadalupe: The Miracle and the Message will be shown in the St. John Cafeteria at 5:30 p.m. Admission if free, and free popcorn and drinks will be served. Everyone is invited to this family event.
