History of OUR LADY GUADALUPE MISSIONARY IMAGE
This particular image of Our Lady has been traveling throughout the country since June of 1991. It was given to America by Mexico at the request of St. John Paul II, and is a full-size replica of the original Tilma, the cape worn by St. Juan Diego on December 12, 1531, in which our Blessed Mother miraculously appeared. Many miracles are attributed to this image, both of healings and other supernatura
l occurrences some occurring right here in Louisville.
On Palm Sunday, March 27, 1994, the image was carried in procession, with about 100 people, from the Cathedral downtown, to the abortion clinic at second and Market Street. Along the entire route, the fragrance of roses followed the group to and from the clinic. While at the clinic, prayers were led by a priest and during this time, the fragrance of roses emanated from the image as though with each heartbeat, she poured out her heart with love in the form of roses. Another time, a little girl was miraculously healed at Kosair Children Hospital. The image was placed at the end of her bed as people were praying, the little girl was able to sit up and reach toward the image. Her ailment was gone after that. When the image was visiting St. Margaret Mary parish, an elderly woman , who suffered from painful arthritis, touched the image. When she returned to her pew, the arthritis was gone! On several occasions, people have felt the heartbeat of Our Lady in the image. In another city, rose petals began miraculously flaking off the image and falling to the ground. A young lady going into an abortion clinic picked one up and had an instant conversion of heart and saved the life of her unborn baby.
The visitation of this image is for the mission of Life, Peace,and Protection of Marriage and Family.
