Our Lady of Guadalupe Sleeves
As the story of Our Lady of Guadalupe goes, on December 9, 1531 the Virgin Mary appeared to a Christian convert named Juan Diego. She instructed him that a church be built in that spot in her honor. Juan Diego told his story to the Spanish Archbishop of Mexico City, who told him to return and ask the "lady" for a miraculous sign to prove her identity. Our Lady told Juan Diego to gather flowers from the top of the hill and she arranged these in his cloak. When Juan Diego opened his cloak in front of the Archbishop on December 12, the flowers fell to the floor. Left behind on the fabric was a beautiful image of Our Lady.
Every year an estimated 10 million pilgrims visit Our Lady of Guadalupe's Basilica in Mexico City. In 1999, Pope John Paul II declared the date of December the 12th as a Holy Day.
The image on the sleeve is the same image of Our Lady of Guadalupe that was left on the cloak. The image is printed on the clear front of the sleeve, and the solid white back acts as a back drop, elegantly showcasing the flowers. Our sleeves comes in two versatile sizes 12"x16"x3" and 17"x16"x5" for both large and small bouquets.
