At a time when Europe, the Old World, was in the throes of a disagreement as regards the use of religious objects like statues and pictures for the purpose of veneration and as inspiration to pray, God worked a miracle in the New World that would restore the faith of His people. He sent the Mother of his A N Son to Mexico, there to appear to a simple native Indian named Juan Diego. This happened on December 9, 1531 atop Tepeyac Hill, once rumoured to have been inhabited by a strange goddess, whose equally strange taste for the blood of babies was legendary. Juan Diego followed Our Lady’s instructions to the ‘T‘—conveying her message to the Bishop of Mexico City for having a Church built there. Miracles followed, the greatest of these being a new thirst for knowing the Christian Faith. Truly a book that would help stimulate the faith, both among the faithful and the faithless!
