On his daily trip to the chapel, Juan Diego walked through the Tepayac hill country in central Mexico. One morning, he heard beautiful music which he described, “like the warbling of birds” and a beaming cloud which surrounded a radiant woman who was dressed like an Aztec princess. She identified herself with these words; "My dear little son, I love you. I desire you to know who I am. I am 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. I desire a church in this place where your people may experience my compassion. All those who sincerely ask my help in their work and in their sorrows will know my Mother's Heart in this place. Here I will see their tears; I will console them and they will be at peace. So run now to Tenochtitlan and tell the Bishop all that you have seen and heard."
Juan was obedient to Our Lady and went directly to the bishop’s castle. Sadly, however, he was turned away a number of times. But Juan was persistent and eventually, the bishop told him to have the lady give him a sign
About this same time Juan’s uncle became seriously ill. Because of this, he was frantically looking for a priest and trying to avoid the lady. She found Juan and assured him that he did not need a priest and that his uncle would recover. She then told Juan, “Go to the top of the hill and cut the flowers that are growing there. Bring them then to me." It did not seem possible that flowers would grow on the freezing hillside but Juan followed Our Lady’s instructions and went to the top of the hill. There he found a full bloom of Castilian roses. He removed his tilma, cut the roses and carried them back to Mary. She rearranged the roses and said to Juan, “Show these flowers to no one else but the Bishop. You are my trusted ambassador. This time the Bishop will believe all you tell him."
Juan, once again, went to the bishop’s home. He told the bishop his story and opened the tilma letting the flowers fall out. It wasn't the beautiful roses that caused the bishop to fall to his knees. On the tilma, where the roses had been, there appeared an image of Mary exactly as she had appeared at the hill of Tepeyac.

Prayer to Our lady of Guadalupe
~ Patron of Unborn Children ~
Virgin of Guadalupe,
Patroness of unborn children,
we implore your intercession
for every child at risk of abortion.
Help expectant parents to welcome from God
the priceless gift of their child’s life.
Console parents who have lost that gift
and lead them to forgiveness and healing
through the Divine Mercy of your Son.
Teach us to cherish
and to care for family and friends
until God calls them home.
Help us never to see others as burdens.
Guide our public officials
to defend each and every human life
through just laws.
Inspire us all to bring our faith into public life,
to speak for those who have no voice.
We ask this in the name of your Son,
Jesus Christ, who is Love and Mercy itself.
Our Lady of Guadalupe is the Patroness of Unborn Children.
There is great sadness in our world, today, as we watch people in favor of late-term and after-birth abortion. For this reason, we felt that a Pro-Life Rosary was a much needed addition to our site. Knowing that Our Lady of Guadalupe is the Patroness of Unborn Children, we felt that creating this rosary as prayer for her intercession would be a way to honor her and all unborn children.
We have chosen these delicate heart shaped millefiore beads for more than one reason. The hearts are, of course, symbolic of Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart and their colors reflects the colors in her image. The word millefiore means “a thousand flowers”. With these beads, we symbolize the flowers in Juan Diego’s tilma. The silhouette of the Czech glass turbine Paters is reflective of a hill leading up and coming down from the top where the roses were picked. The fixtures are imported from Italy. A large Our Lady of Guadalupe center and ornate crucifix complete this limited edition rosary which measures 20”.
Limited to an edition of three.
Your Our Lady of Guadalupe Rosary will be shipped in a fabric pouch and gift box.
