Collection: Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe

Our Blessed Mother then directed St. Juan Diego to the top of Tepeyac Hill to collect flowers as a sign for Bishop Zumarraga. St. Juan Diego was skeptical since it was winter in Mexico, and the hill was barren. When he reached the top of the hill, there was an abundance of roses. Mary arranged the roses in his tilma (poncho), and then he set out to show Bishop Zumarraga. When he arrived at the Bishop, he opened his poncho, and on his garment was the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Bishop Zumarraga wept at the sight of Our Lady of Guadalupe and laid St. Juan Diego's garment in his chapel. By Christmas of 1531, an adobe structure was built on top of Tepeyac Hill in honor of Our Blessed Mother.
