Poetry for Our Lady of Guadalupe

This collection of Marian poems honors the Blessed Virgin Mary's appearances at Guadalupe in Tepeyac, a poor area on the periphery of what today is known as Mexico City, Mexico. The Marian apparitions occurred between December 9 and 12 of 1531. The seers were Juan Diego and Juan Bernardino. Mary presented herself to Juan Diego as the Mother of God, but Juan Diego in turn presented her to the bishop as the Mother of Our Savior, Jesus Christ. The image of Mary was miraculously painted on the mantle of Juan Diego. Our Lady spoke to Juan Deigo about the need to practice loving kindness, compassion, and hospitality. Today, Our Lady of Guadalupe is considered as the empress, patron saint, and mother of the Americas. The date of the feast for Our Lady of Guadalupe is December 12.
