Our Lady of High Grace

Saint Mary Theotokos

Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe 

Within Catholicism, a miracle of the roses is a miracle in which roses manifest an activity of God or a saint. Such a miracle is presented in various hagiographies and legends in different forms; it occurs in connection with diverse individuals such as Saints Elizabeth of Hungary (1207–1231), Elizabeth of Portugal (1271–1336), Saint Dorothy, a 4th-century virgin martyr at Caesarea in Cappadocia (died ca. 311), and Our Lady of Guadalupe (appeared in 1531). 

In the story of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the miraculous presence of the roses in the middle of winter is a sign of the presence of the divinity. The account is a corollary to a Marian apparition, Our Lady of Guadalupe, found in the 1556 booklet Huei tlamahuiçoltica and supposedly taking place in 1531. It concerns a native inhabitant of Mexico named Juan Diego, whom the Virgin chooses to convey a message to an unwilling bishop, "Here I will hear their weeping, their sorrow and will remedy and alleviate all their multiple sufferings, necessities and misfortunes." The bishop, however, does not believe Diego's story. He returns to his field, where again the Virgin appears with the same message. Diego again goes to the bishop with the same result and the remark that he has to bring a token if he is to be believed. The fourth time the Virgin appears, she directs Diego toward "varied Castilian flowers," which he picks; she then places the flowers in his mantle. (Identifying these flowers as Castilian or Damask roses is a later addition.) This time the bishop is convinced, especially when an image of the Virgin miraculously appears on Diego's cloak.
