Our Lady of Guadalupe is the most beloved symbol of Mexican
Catholicism, and devotion to her is widespread in the USA. While she has
entranced and encouraged Mexican Catholics for several centuries,
believers and even nonbelievers the world over are inspired and
intrigued by her. Millions of pilgrims visit her shrine in Mexico City
every year. Both Pope John Paul II and Pope Francis have travelled there
to pray for her motherly intercession. And scientists from many
disciplines have studied the amazing attributes of her mysterious image.
In this glorious, lavishly illustrated book, the renowned
author-photographer team Grzegorz Górny and Janusz Rosikon take the
reader on an illustrated pilgrimage to Our Lady of Guadalupe. They tell
the amazing story of her apparition to Juan Diego in 1531 and its
dramatic impact upon the destiny of an entire people. They interview the
various experts on the image and reveal its symbolic messages, those of
the past and those speaking to us today.
