Holy Infant hosted the Silver Rose that honors Our Lady of Guadalupe on August 22nd. It was a once in a lifetime event. The following is the story of Our Lady of Guadalupe and the history of the Silver Rose.
Early on a cold Saturday morning (December 9, 1531), Juan Diego, baptized into the faith as an adult in 1523, was on his way to assist at Mass about two and a half miles from Tlatleloco, where there was a church. Suddenly he heard beautiful music and a woman’s voice calling to him from the top of Tepeyac Hill, which he was then passing. He saw a beautiful woman who revealed that she was the Blessed Virgin. She instructed him to visit the bishop to tell him that a temple should be built in her honor at the base of the hill.
