We are pleased to announce that one of the 220 Our Lady of Guadalupe Authorized Relics of Evangelization will be present at our Uniting the Faithful Conference.
The Relic’s History
On April 20, 2004, during a private special ceremony led by Monsignor Diego Monroy Ponce, Rector of Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City, 220 exact size replicas of Our Lady of Guadalupe were touched to the sacred original Tilma of St. Juan Diego. Monsignor Diego declared these images as authorized relics that will extend the graces of evangelization, conversion and truth–the same graces as extended in 1531. These images will help to fulfill Pope John Paul II’s prophecy in 1979 when he stated ” The Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe will be the center from which the light of the gospel of Christ will illuminate the entire world by means of the miraculous image of His mother.”
From the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe on May 8, 2004, Cardinal Norberto Rivera Carrera of Mexico led the introduction of the Life and Mercy Crusade, beginning the fulfillment of this prophecy. He blessed the evangelization effort of the relics. There are 194 relics placed in each of the 194 countries (including the Vatican) of the world. Seven relics were prepared for introduction into the United States.
