The Lady of Guadalupe, also known as Our Lady of Guadalupe, holds great cultural and religious significance in Mexico and among the Catholic community worldwide. According to legend, the Virgin Mary appeared to an indigenous man named Juan Diego in 1531 near Mexico City. She left her image imprinted on his cloak, which is now enshrined in the Basilica of Guadalupe.
The image of the Lady of Guadalupe typically portrays her as a young woman with indigenous features, dressed in a vibrant blue mantle adorned with stars. She stands on a crescent moon, surrounded by rays of sunlight. This depiction represents her as a symbol of hope, compassion, and divine intervention.
By turning this iconic image into an embroidery patch, you have created a tangible and wearable tribute to the Lady of Guadalupe. It allows individuals to proudly display their faith, cultural heritage, and devotion to her. The 6" size ensures that the patch stands out and captures the intricate details of the original image, making it a cherished item for those who hold a special connection to the Lady of Guadalupe.
The Patch base on a venerated image on a cloak (tilmahtli) associated with the apparition is enshrined within the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City. Pope Leo XIII granted the image a decree of canonical coronation on February 8, 1887, and it was pontifically crowned on October 12, 1895. The basilica is the most-visited Catholic shrine in the world, and the world's third most-visited sacred site.
