The Story of Our Lady of Guadalupe: Empress of the Americas
By C. Lourdes Walsh
The Story of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Empress of the Americas, is the true story of the most remarkable event in the history of the Americas. On a cold December morning in 1531, the Mother of God appeared on a barren hilltop to a humble Aztec convert to Christianity. That meeting and the others that followed changed not only the life of Juan Diego, but also the course of history for both the Aztecs and the Spanish conquerors.
The Story of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Empress of the Americas, tells St. Juan Diego’s story with the aid of 18 beautiful full-color photographs of the paintings of master artist, Jorge Sánchez-Hernández. His “Nican Mopohua” collection is perhaps the most exquisite and moving depiction of the apparitions ever painted. Children and adults will delight in seeing these images bring to life this timeless story.
