It was 1531 when a peasant, Juan Diego had a vision. He saw a Lady on Tepeyac Hill. The Lady said she wanted a church to be built at that precise spot where she was seen, so Juan Diego went to see the Bishop….
…He told the Bishop what the Lady had asked him for. The Bishop hesitating asked him to bring some proof.
Juan Diego went back to see the Lady and told her he needed to take some kind of proof to the Bishop…
She told Juan Diego to cut the roses behind him and to bring them to the Bishop.
So he did, he cut the roses and put them in his poncho.
He then brought the roses before the Bishop and when he let the roses falling to the ground, the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe was printed, displaying it on his poncho.
The Virgin of Guadalupe now has her Church, actually two. There is the first one built, finished in 1709 and a newer one shown below finished in 1976.
