The Canadian Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe
This life size image of Our Lady of Guadalupe is a faithful, life-size copy of the Sacred Tilma (cloak) of Saint Juan Diego. In 2001, the original tilma on display in Mexico City, was digitally photographed and printed on canvas using laser rays.
One of the copies produced was given as a gift to the faithful of Canada by Monsignor Diego Monroy Ponce, then the Vicar General, Bishop of Guadalupe and Rector of the Sanctuary in Mexico City. He blessed the image at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe on March 2, 2001 and asked that it travel in Canada in the new evangelization. The Image was given the official title: "The Canadian Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe".
