Textiles


Ever since men and women have been known to be on Earth, they made and used textiles. In the beginning weavings and cloth were created for their utilitarian value. Man need clothing for protection from the cold, and weaving were used as rugs. Now days textiles serve a decorative purpose as well in our homes and offices.

 

Guadalupe

Guadalupe


At that time, in the year 1531, in the early days of the month of December, it happened that there lived a poor Indian, named Juan Diego. The Virgin Guadalupe appeared before the frightened youth. She instructed him to tell the Bishop to build a temple on the hillside. The Bishop, not believing the tale Juan Diego told, requested proof. The Holy Virgin again instructed Juan Diego. "Gather roses in your sarape". Miraculously when Juan Diego let down his sarape filled with roses before the Bishop, the image of the Holy Virgin was found embossed on the cloth. Juan Diego's sarape with the image of Guadalupe may be seen today over the alter in the Basilica de Santa Maria de Guadalupe in Mexico City. Guadalupe, please pray for us...
