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”.
