Our Lady of Guadalupe Medal
Silver pewter medal of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
On December 9, 1531, Our Lady appeared to Blessed Juan Diego, an Indian Christian, whom she sent to the bishop with the request to build a Church in her honor on the hill where she appeared. The bishop asked Juan Diego for a sign to prove that the Virgin had appeared to him. Our Lady appeared to Juan Diego again on December 12 and She directed Juan Diego to gather a bouquet of roses that miraculously appeared on a bush nearby (roses do not bloom in the winter cold, not even in Mexico) to present to the bishop. Juan Diego gathered the roses in his tilma (a cloak made from cactus cloth). When he opened his tilma before the bishop, the roses felt to the floor, and the bishop was amazed to see the miraculous image of the Mother of God imprinted on the cloak. That image is reproduced in this medal.
Size: 2.5cm (1 inch) tall including the top loop.
The medal comes with split-ring through the top loop so it is ready to use as a pendant, or for a rosary or chaplet.
