Between December 9 and December 12, 1531, the Virgin Mary appeared to a Native American Christian convert on a hilltop outside of what is now Mexico City. The image she left imprinted on his cloak or tilma has puzzled scientists for centuries, and yet Our Lady of Gudalupe's place in history is profound. A continent that just months before the apparitions seemed completely lost to Christianity suddenly and inexplicably embraced it by the millions. Our Lady of Guadalupe's message of love replaced the institutionalised violence of the Aztec culture, and built a bridge between two worlds - the old and the new - that were just ten years earlier engaged in brutal warfare.
