Veneration of the Virgin of Guadalupe

“According to Roman Catholic tradition, the Virgin of Guadalupe appeared for the fourth and last time to Juan Diego Cuauhtlatoatzin on December 12th, 1531, on the Tepeyac Hill in modern day Mexico City. Guatemalan faithful flock to Guatemala City’s Guadalupe Sanctuary every year on the aforementioned date to venerate the Virgin of Guadalupe. As part of the tradition, children are dressed in indigenous outfits to represent Juan Diego who belonged to the Chichimeca ethnic group.”
