Most people are familiar with the shroud of Turin but I don't believe that many our familiar with the Tilma in which Our Lady of Guadalupe left a very detailed image of herself. Here is an article from 2012 which discusses the intricacies of this miracle Tilma. http://infallible-catholic.blogspot.com/2012/04/miraculous-image-of-our-lady-of.html I could not find many postings about this on MOG so I thought it might be interesting to start a new thread where we can post what we find to be the most interesting thing about this Tilma. For me there are so many things but I do wonder what the significance is to the accuracy of the constellations, other than the obvious relation to Revelations 12. It is a shame that the crown from the original image is no longer visible in the image today. The miracle of this image is just incredible. The following prayer is one of several written for Our Lady of Guadalupe: O our Lady of Guadalupe, mystical rose, make intercession for Holy Church, protect the Sovereign Pontiff, help all those who invoke thee in their necessities, and since thou art the ever Virgin Mary and Mother of the true God, obtain for us from thy most holy Son the grace of keeping our faith, sweet hope in the midst of the bitterness of life, burning charity and the precious gift of final perseverance. Dearest Lady, fruitful Mother of Holiness, teach me Your ways of gentleness and strength. Hear my prayer, offered with deep felt confidence to beg this favor... (State your prayer request here.) O Mary, conceived without sin, I come to your throne of grace to share the fervent devotion of your faithful Mexican children who call to Thee under the glorious title "Guadalupe" - the Virgin who crushed the serpent. Queen of Martyrs, whose Immaculate Heart was pierced by seven swords of grief, help me to walk valiantly amid the sharp thorns strewn across my path. Invoke the Holy Spirit of Wisdom to fortify my will to frequent the Sacraments so that, thus enlightened and strengthened, I may prefer God to all creatures and shun every occasion of sin. Help me, as a living branch of the Vine that is Jesus Christ, to exemplify His divine charity always seeking the good of others. Queen of Apostles, aid me to win souls for the Sacred Heart of my Savior. Keep my apostolate fearless, dynamic, and articulate, to proclaim the loving solitude of Our Father in Heaven so that the wayward may heed His pleading and obtain pardon, through the merits of Your Merciful Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
