Like the Shroud of Turin, many claim that North America’s most venerated Christian relic holds a blessed and sacred image formed in 1531, a decade after the conquest of Mesoamerica by Spanish Conquistador Hernan Cortez. Known as the Virgin of Guadalupe this holy image on a cloak became a recognized symbol of Catholic Mexicans and is today enshrined within the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City. The basilica is the most-visited Catholic shrine on earth, and the world’s third most-visited sacred site. Guest podcaster Nathaniel Lloyd of the «Historical Blindness» podcast shares his telling of this incredible—and some believe—miraculous story!
