New film explains how Our Lady of Guadalupe converted millions to Christianity

2015-12-12

In 1531, the image of Our Lady appeared on the cloak of an indigenous convert named Juan Diego, who experienced a series of visions of the Virgin Mary over several days. There is no scientific explanation for the image's existence.

Our Lady of Guadalupe is one of the Catholic Church's greatest icons. While many people recognize her, fewer are aware of just how great her impact has been, especially in the Americas.

A new documentary about Our Lady sets out to explain how the icon led millions of people to convert to Christianity.

LUIS GUEVARA
"Guadalupe: The Miracle and the Message” 
"In Our Lady of Guadalupe, they found the answer, that God was with them. And this was the true faith for them. And that's why the entire Native American population, they came from areas where the priests had not even visited, and they came asking for Baptism.”

Luis Guevara is one of the film's producers. He and the Knights of Columbus have worked on the project for years.

The film includes interviews with leading theologians, historians, and scientists. It discusses the history of the image, as well as features which can't be explained by science.

LUIS GUEVARA
"Guadalupe: The Miracle and the Message” 
"A lot of people will find hope and peace in this documentary. Even though it tries to explain from the most historical point of view, the most scientific, it definitely is understandable and is very profound. And it is actually designed to appeal to anyone.”

The film is available in both English and Spanish. For more information about how to watch the documentary, visit  www.guadalupethefilm.com.
