I was privileged to receive a one-on-one-on-one presentation of Our Lady of Guadalupe from Scott. Why the additional “on-one”? That will become evident. First, let me say Scott is an extremely knowledgeable and passionate presenter. I had never heard her story in so much detail, coupled with all the symbols contained in the image of […]

Dynamite & Miracles

Did you know that on November 14th, 1921 there was an attempt to destroy the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe? Three men disguised as pilgrims set a vase of flowers concealing 19 sticks of dynamite on the high altar of the old basilica, inches away from the then 389-year-old tilma of Juan Diego. The […]

A Strange Line

Have you noticed the line that extends across the entire image of Our Lady of Guadalupe?

The Aureola around Our Lady – Part I

Have you ever looked closely at the golden rays around the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe? While the halo-like glow is familiar to us in many famous artistic depictions of saintly figures and of Christ Himself, it can be easy to miss what this specific aureola can tell us both historically and theologically… The […]

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?

Guadalupedia: Secret Swap

Did you know that during the Christero Wars 1926-1929 the Image of Our Lady was secretly removed for safekeeping in a plan devised by the priest in charge of the basilica?

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!
