Monstrance History (from Mary Catherine): One of the most Eucharistic images of Mary is one she created herself. Her self-portrait as Our Lady of Guadalupe shows her pregnant and regal. This iconography she placed on Juan Diego’s tilmma in 1550 is still visible to us today. Why she appeared to Juan Diego was to tell him, “I am your mother, why fear, are you not in the folds of my garment.” And she wanted a church built there in her honor. The church is where the body and blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ would be made present by the anointed priest to feed her children. Through this miraculous iconic image she painted herself with heavenly roses, she converted millions and stopped pagan sacrifice. Scientific development is still finding secrets in this image. The eyes tell a story only magnification can reveal.
There have been books written on this image. What I have been able to make is a monstrance using the image she gave us. Mary and Jesus are so united to be able to adore Jesus in His mothers’ womb with the image that she herself gave us - it is a grace. This is church. This is our history and love of Our Eternal Mother. If we want peace, we must pray and adore the Prince of Peace. Jesus came into Mary’s womb so he could redeem and open the gates of heaven for us. Our Mother gave us her image as Our Lady of Guadalupe when she was pregnant with Our Savior.
