TWO PHOTOGRAPHIC IMAGES OF
OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE
A locutionist in the state of Washington was told Our Lady of Guadalupe wants to travel. Since the real image cannot leave Mexico, photographs (filmed by NASA during recent analysis) were blessed at the Basilica in front of the authentic Tilma of Juan Diego.
The purpose of the Missionary Images is for conversions, reverence for life, sanctity of the family and solidarity of the Church in America. Missionary Images are actual size (4’X6’) replicas of the original Miraculous Image of Our Lady which she left on Blessed Juan Diego’s tilma. The Images have visited each of the United States in over one thousand parishes and have received the veneration of hundreds of thousands since it started traveling in 1991.
The Holy Father asked for a "New Evangelization." The United States bishops entrusted this evangelization to Our Lady of Guadalupe. They said, "We entrust our commitment to giving birth with new fervor to the life of the Gospel in our hemisphere, to Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Americas. She truly was the first Christ bearer, by her maternal intercession, may her faithful sons and daughters be renewed and discover afresh the joy and splendor an promise of being bearers of the good news.
Many people have felt the heartbeat of an unborn child in Mary's womb as well as the heartbeat of the Image itself.
May 23, 2003 - Doctor Margaret Pasakas placed her stethoscope on the heart of the Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe at St. Joseph Hospital in Reading, Pennsylvania. To her utter astonishment she heard a human heartbeat
Our Lady is teaching us that abortion is about a child
and not a choice.
In Wichita, Kansas, the Missionary Image visited an abortuary where late-term babies are being killed and cremated in an incinerator on the premises. As the Image was processed around the killing center, people smelled a strong fragrance of roses. Then, they saw rose petals miraculously flaking from the Image in all directions. An eyewitness to this extraordinary event, experienced an overwhelming peace and said that it seemed as if heaven had come down to earth and Our Lady was saying, "It is good for you to be here; as I too stood at the foot of the Cross silently watching and praying as my innocent Son was crucified."
On several occasions the Image has wept tears of oil. Once it wept on Christmas Day before the entire congregation. The priest told them, "Our Lady is weeping on her Son's birthday for all of her children who have no birthday because of abortion.”
It wept tears at a prison in Phoenix and was witnessed by about 30 people.
