The roses


The rose motif is a symbol of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Roses play a key role in the story of the miraculous image on the tilma of St. Juan Diego. This rose motif can be found in the narthex of St. Juan Diego Church, at the place of honor in front of the altar, and near the tabernacle. The rose motif reminds us of the encounter of Juan Diego Cuauhtlatoatzin and the Virgin of Guadalupe on Tepeyac Hill.
