Item Description...
Overview
This relatively short book is widely regarded as the best on the apparition of Our Lady in 1531 in Mexico City. Tells the complete story, from the Conquest of Mexico and the conversion of the Aztecs, through the development of the devotion and into the modern era. Shows that the picture is not a painting, but more like a photograph, and how under normal circumstances it should have disintegrated in 20 or 30 years. Describes several miracles that saved it and the remarkable power of the devotion. An enthralling story and an essential devotion!

Most Signficant Event of the New World (For Starters)  Mar 4, 2010
Sometime I would like to go into more detail about this remarkable short book, but pressed for time, I want to post something to adorn the all too small reader response (thus far).

If you read this and are not persuaded or fundamentally moved at your depths by the profusion of detail about the history of this miraculous image of the Virgin Mary, including the bombing of the Tilma in the Cathedral in Tepeyac in the days of the pre-Calles regime, that blew out windows and seriously warped a wrought iron altar crucifix but didn't even break the glass protecting the miraculous Tilma of St. Juan Diego, then you are, like some images of Quetzlcoatl, made of stone.

Read the book, and get back to me, I've read it many times since buying it in the gift shop of Mission San Juan Capistrano in 2000, and am flabbergasted by Mr. Johnston's exploration of key cultural events in the transition between the old order of the Aztecs, and the New Life brought by the Franciscans. Especially, in the opening pages, the vision ~near death experience?~ of Princess Papantzin, sister of Montezuma, who escaped from the crypt where they were prematurely burying her, alive, to tell of a luminous being with a cross on its forehead, that led her down to the sea and showed her ships that would arrive in not many years, that were emblazoned with the same Cross.

There is a distinct upside to the Conquista, and this book tells the story.

Princess Papantzin became one of the first converts to the new Religion, along with a "pobrecito" Nahuatl named Juan Diego.

Read the story, too, if you can find it, from a book of John Steinbeck's "Uncollected Short Stories of..." published in, of all places, Tokyo, for his glimmering cameo of these events, "The Miracle of Tepeyac" and you will begin to see why Our Lady of Guadalupe is the key and binding event in Mexican history (see wikipedia article to be more sure)and why also the little Nahuatl Princess, aka Empress of the Americas, is the Queen of these lands we inhabit.

Roses of Castille await !!
