When we need someone to turn to in times of trouble, naturally one would think of a mother figure due their nurturing and comforting qualities. The Catholic faith brings that to the forefront strongly in praying to the mother figure, Our Lady of Guadalupe, for she is seen as the Virgin Mary. According to the traditional story, a man named Juan Diego saw an apparation of this woman during the 1500's in Mexico. She told him to build a church in her honor. In order to prove to the bishop that Diego's story was true, Our Lady of Guadalupe provided signs to help make his case. The church then became a reality.
