This is the traditional story, told simply and elegantly, of how Juan Diego meets the beautiful Lady of Guadalupe on a windswept hilltop one December and carries her message to the disbelieving bishop.
The Lady fills Juan’s cloak with full-blooming roses and impresses her image on its fibers as a sign for the bishop to fulfill her request of building a house of prayers. The story tells of how, over many years, countless hands built the great church dedicated to the Lady of Roses, Nuestra Senora Guadalupe on the hill of Tepeyac. And it stands there still, as a center of prayer, healing, and hope for all of Our Lady’s precious children of the Earth. All ages will enjoy the story of Talking Eagle and the Lady of Roses and the wild and glorious illustrations of award-winning, Taos, New Mexico, artist Amy Cordova. Also included is an informative afterword by Eugene Gollogly.
