Our Lady of Guadalupe - Patroness of Latin America (1531).
One of the most beautiful series of apparitions of the Queen of Heaven occurred on the American continent on a December day of 1531, only ten years after the Spanish conquest. In 1910 She was proclaimed by Saint Pius X "Celestial Patroness of all Latin America". Recent studies of the image of Our Lady on the tilma have discovered in one of Her eyes the portrait of Juan Diego, the son She chose to favor by this triduum of heavenly apparitions and conversations.
