Known as the Patron Saint of the Americas, the Virgin of Guadalupe is a religious and national symbol of the Mexican people.
Legend has it that in 1531, she appeared four times to an Aztec native, Juan Diego Cuauhtlatoatzin, on Tepeyac Hill, near Mexico City. She invites him to ask for the authorization of the bishop to build a temple in this same place. Lévêque then asks for incontestable proof to justify his decision before his community. In her fourth apparition, the virgin asks Juan Diego to pick flowers from the hill and keep them in her tilma mantle. Juan Diego picks roses, which normally do not grow in this arid climate. Once in the village, he unfolds the mantle, and, to everyone's surprise, the image of the virgin wearing a gold-covered mantle appears printed. imprimée.
