The mistery of the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe | 2020


 

A brief presentation on the history and symbolism behind the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe, a copy of which is portrayed in oil on canvas by artist Gabriela Vaz Meirelles. The image of Our Lady is like a codex, where all the graphics have a meaning, representing a synthesis between Christian iconography and Mesoamerican culture.

 

Quotes:

“In the poor Juan Diego’s tilma… brushes that are not from this world left painted a very sweet image”.
POPE PIUS XII

“A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet”.
REVELATION 12:1

“Everything about it is miraculous: an image that comes from flowers harvested in a totally sterile terrain, in which only thorns can grow… an image printed on such a thin canvas that through it the people and the Church’s nave can be seen… God did not act like that with any other nation”.
POPE BENTO XIV, 1754
