According to most sources, Juan Diego (Cuauhtlatoatzin), a Nahua, sees the apparition of the Virgin Mary on a hill called Tepeyacac in Mexico again on December 12, 1531. He first saw her on December 9th. According to Juan Diego, the Virgin Mary instructs him to carry some roses in his macehualli (a cloak) to the local Bishop as proof of her appearance. When the macehualli is opened before the Bishop, an image of the Virgin Mary appears on the cloak among the rose petals. The macehualli is still on display in the church (Our Lady of Guadalupe) built to honor the event. Here are some pictures of the Basilica de Guadelupe & the miraculous painting of the Virgin Mary. This is in Mexico City.
