$49.95 AUD

Our Lady of Guadalupe is the most beloved symbol of Mexican Catholicism, and devotion to her is widespread in the USA. While she has entranced and encouraged Mexican Catholics for several centuries, believers and even nonbelievers the world over are inspired and intrigued by her. Millions of pilgrims visit her shrine in Mexico City every year. Both Pope John Paul II and Pope Francis have travelled there to pray for her motherly intercession. And scientists from many disciplines have studied the amazing attributes of her mysterious image.

In this glorious, lavishly illustrated book, the renowned author-photographer team Grzegorz Górny and Janusz Rosikon take the reader on an illustrated pilgrimage to Our Lady of Guadalupe. They tell the amazing story of her apparition to Juan Diego in 1531 and its dramatic impact upon the destiny of an entire people. They interview the various experts on the image and reveal its symbolic messages, those of the past and those speaking to us today.

Reviews:

"Examining the image of Our Lady was the greatest experience of my life. When close to it, I had strange feelings, similar to those experienced by people that had worked on the Turin Shroud."
— Philip S. Callahan, Ph.D., Research Biophysicist, University of Florida

"One cannot understand the identity of Latin Americans, their profound Marian character, without being familiar with the history of Our Lady of Guadalupe. This amazing book helps one to fathom this great mystery."
— Wlodzimierz Redzioch, Author, Stories about Saint John Paul II
