Any theological study of the Guadalupe Event must take into account the historical setting and the literary context in which the story has come down to us. The apparitions of Mary in 1531 to Juan Diego are set forth in detail in the Nican Mopohua, the classic work of Don Antonio Velenriano that is studied in this work. They are extraordinarily rich in revealing the loving nature of God, the spiritual maternity of Mary, the role of the prophet and the theology of witnessing. The supernatural and the natural are woven together in a truly divine environment in which the Gospel is proclaimed in the form of a sign imprinted on the tilma of St. Juan Diego. The central role of the Church is emphasized throughout. Mary is seen as mother, queen, advocate and helper of the poor. This work emphasizes the Native American context of the Guadalupe Event and also includes a fresh translation into English of the Nican Mopohua.
