The most popular religious icon in Mexico is Our Lady of Guadalupe (The Virgin Mary). While visiting Mexico City, we toured The Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe. I would like to share with you the story on how the Basilica came to be built.
Upon hearing this story, I was overwhelmed with emotion and filled with memories of my dear Nana. Nana passed away on November 30, 2000. A few weeks prior, my sister noticed a fully bloomed rose had pushed it's way up through her snow covered garden. A surprise bloom made even more special by it's peach coloring. Peach colored roses were Nana's favorite flower! No proof was necessary for what we already knew and believed, Nana was an angel on earth.........
My thanks to our tour guide Sergio Solis and Wikipedia for the story of The Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
