Guadalupedia: “What’s in a name?”

While many people know of the first four apparitions of Our Lady of Guadalupe to St. Juan Diego, did you know that there was a fifth apparition to St. Juan Bernadino from his death bed?

She both miraculously healed him from certain death and also revealed her name.

By doing so she both appropriately honored St. Juan Diego’s uncle and elder, while also giving us her name so that we could invoke her intercession, exactly as we know it today, “Guadalupe”.

Guadalupe Missions is a non-profit that provides talks, retreats and mission-pilgrimages throughout the U.S. and in Mexico City.

Our missionary work is inspired by the Beatitudes as well as the example and guidance of Our Lady, serving the poorest and most neglected individuals and communities.

Guadalupe Missions’ purpose is to evangelize by sharing the love of Christ through the gift of His mother Mary – meeting both worldly & spiritual needs.

In our talks and retreats we unpack the treasury of symbolism and depth seen in the image itself as well as the rich historical, scientific, and theological significance of a miraculous image that resulted in the largest conversion in recorded history.

We welcome you to respond to Our Lady’s generous and heartfelt invitation to greater intimacy with her Son, Jesus Christ.

We hope that you find the resources on this site (designed by missionaries – not web designers!) useful on your journey to Christ.

Know of our prayers!
