Our Lady Of Guadalupe

Mother of the Civilization of Love


Formats & editions


The leader of the Knights of Columbus presents a provocative book that looks to unite all Catholics under the extremely popular figure of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

Carl Anderson’s investigation into the mystery of the Virgin Mary’s appearance in Mexico in 1531 seeks to enliven the cultural richness of the Catholic Church in the Americas by embracing Our Lady of Guadalupe as the patroness of all the Americas, accessible to English- and Spanish-speaking Catholics alike. The book begins by explaining the history of the apparition of Our Lady to a native peasant, Juan Diego, in Mexico in the 16th century and shows how she has become one of the most important Catholic figures in the Western Hemisphere.
