  According to tradition, the Virgin Mary appeared to Juan Diego, a man of Aztec descent who had converted to Christianity, on December 9, 1531.  She asked Juan Diego to build a shrine on the spot where she had appeared, Tepeyac Hill, now in a suburb of Mexico City.
    She identified herself as the ever virgin Holy Mary, Mother of God. She requested that a church be built on the site where she appeared. 
  This church was indeed built and Our Lady has ever after been loved and revered by Mexicans  throughout the world. The Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe is celebrated on December 12.
  “A great sign appeared in the heaven: a woman clothed with sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.”
