Prayer to Our Lady of Guadalupe
Feast Day: December 12
Our Lady of Guadalupe, who blessed Mexico and all the Americas by your appearance to Juan Diego, intercede for the holy Church, protect the pope, and help everyone who invokes you in their necessities.
O mystical rose, hear our prayers and our petitions, especially for the particular one we are praying for at this moment (mention your request).
Since you are the ever Virgin Mary and Mother of the true God, obtain for us from your 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.
"If the hurricanes of temptation rise against you, or you are running upon the rocks of trouble, look to the star - call on Mary!"
~ Saint Bernard of Clairvaux~

Our goal in creating this rosary, is to represent, symbolically and visually, the appearance of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
Because pearls are symbolic of purity, we have chosen a gentle yellow glass pear as the Aves for this rosary. We, especially like the hand made Paters with color “bright as the sun” and flowers to symbolize the roses found on the Tepeyac Hill. Adding to their symbolism, the colors in these Paters parallels the colors in the original image. Sparkling AB glass spaces the beads. Completing this very limited edition rosary, is an Our Lady of Guadalupe center and Holy Trinity crucifix. This very symbolic rosary measures 24”.
Edition limited to six

On his daily trip to the chapel, Juan Diego walked through the Tepayac hill country in central Mexico. One special morning, he came upon a beautiful woman surrounded by a ball of light as bright as the sun.
She identified herself as the "ever-virgin Mary, Mother of the true God who gives life and maintains its existence. He created all things. He is in all places. He is Lord of Heaven and Earth."
Speaking to him in his native tongue, Mary asked that a church be built at that site in her honor. Diego told his story to the Spanish Archbishop of Mexico City, Fray Juan de Zumárraga, who instructed him to return to Tepeyac Hill, and ask the "lady" for a miraculous sign to prove her identity. The first sign was the Virgin healing Juan's uncle. The Virgin told Juan Diego to gather flowers from the top of Tepeyac Hill. Although December was very late in the growing season for flowers to bloom, Juan Diego found Castilian roses, not native to Mexico, on the normally barren hilltop. The Virgin arranged these in his tilma. When Juan Diego opened his cloak before Bishop Zumárraga on December 12, the flowers fell to the floor, and on the fabric was the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe.
Our Lady of Guadalupe is the Patron of the Americas
