  • I had put her on an ugly wall, but I was not happy about it. A few days ago, I put her in the garden next to a rose bush.

    I am new to Colorado, and my neighbor told me roses bloom in the Spring and Fall here.

    In my garden, it is otherwise.

    The legend speaks of the Virgin asking Juan Diego to gather flowers in Tepeyac Hill in the month of December, where nothing ever blooms. Climbing up, Juan Diego found red roses not native to Mexico. When he came back with "proof" of the Virgin's apparition, the roses fell to the floor, leaving in their place the image of the Virgin imprinted in the very cloak where the roses had been wrapped.

    Milagro de las Rosas

    La había puesto sobre una pared muy fea. Y no me gustaba. Hace unos días, la pasé al jardín al lado de un rosal.

    No conozco muy bien el clima en Colorado, pero mi vecina me dijo que acá las rosas sólo florecen en la primavera y el otoño.

    En mi jardín, no es así.

    Dicen que la Virgen le pidió a Juan Diego que busque rosas en Tepeyac, durante el mes de diciembre, cuando nada florece. Al subir a la colina, Juan Diego encontró rosas rojas, no nativas de Mexico. Cuando volvió a mostrarle al Obispo la evidencia entregada por la virgen, las rosas cayeron al suelo, dejando en su lugar, en el manto que envolvía las rosas, una imagen de la Virgen de Guadalupe.
