Our Lady arises in the New World (aka, the Americas) as Our Lady of Guadalupe. She is known to appear to St Juan Diego, an indigenous believer.
The beginnings of the Catholic are helped by Mary as Señora de Guadalupe appearing on the hill in Mexico. Even as our Blessed Mother is loved and is considered our proctor, Our Lady of Guadalupe is revered by many people in the Americas, particularly in Mexico and the southern and south western saints of the United States.
The image of Mary on the prayer card has been created in the style of ancient icons. The image is amazing. With the star behind her, she is certainly representative of the evangelization of the new world.
These lovely holy cards are a bit lighter weight than some others we
offer, but the printing is absolutely outstanding. They are a
convenient size for use as gifts or bookmarks - measuring 3-1/8 by
4-5/8 inches on heavy cream-colored paper. The back is blank except
for a faint colophon at the bottom, leaving plenty of room for custom
imprinting with your own message, or a place to write a note to a
friend, or to inscribe an appropriate prayer.
