Our Lady first appeared to Juan Diego in Mexico where she asked him to request that the bishop build a church. The bishop did not believe Juan Diego and asked for a sign from Mary. In response, the Blessed Mother produced roses at a time when roses did not grow, as well as an image in her likeness on a cloak. The colorful Our Lady of Guadalupe statue depicts the Blessed Mother as she appeared to Juan Diego. The statue is made of durably vinyl and makes an excellent addition to any garden.
