A Woman Clothed with the Sun: An Advent Retreat Guide on Our Lady of Guadalupe
During Advent in the year 1531, the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to a native Mexican, St. Juan Diego, and asked him a favor. She sent him to the bishop with a request to have a Catholic church built on the hill where she was appearing—Tepeyac Hill—in present-day Mexico City. The bishop was skeptical. He responded to the petition with a request of his own. He asked for a sign to show that this request indeed was coming from God. When Juan Diego relayed this to Mary, she complied—she provided a beautiful, dramatic sign indeed.
This sign made an incalculable impact on the evangelization of the Americas, an effect that continues to resound and spread even today.
These events and that incredible impact are the subjects of this Advent Retreat Guide: A Woman Clothed with the Sun.
