  • Our Lady of Guadalupe evokes powerful spirituality

    Oralia Lorenzana speaks about her deep connection with the Virgin of Guadalupe, patroness of all the Americas. St. John's Cathedral in Boise observes one of the most important feast days, particularly among Mexican and Mexican-American Catholics. According to believers, the Virgin of Guadalupe appeared in 1531 in the hills above Mexico City to a poor man, Juan Diego. She appeared with dark skin, speaking not Spanish but Nahuatl, the indigenous language, and appeared to a working man, not a high church official. As proof of her appearance, the Virgin made roses bloom in December. Diego gathered the flowers in his cloak, or tilma, and brought them to the bishop. When he unwrapped them, an image of the Virgin remained on the tilma. The Virgin is always portrayed with roses.
