Mother of All Mexico

Santiago once told me that on December 12th you are supposed to ask her anything and she'd understand, she'd listen and she'd deliver.

The tilma that hangs at the Basilica of the Virgin of Guadalupe in Mexico city is said to be the original image given to Juan Diego. The worship of the Virgen de Guadalupe is not Catholic, it actually offends many Catholics, but it is very much part of the Mexican culture. If she was created to convert the indigenous people into Catholics, the plan failed. She became the Goddess to a country of indigenous people who had been orphaned by their pagan gods and raped by European conquerors.  She belongs to them and they go to her for everything.
