And a great sign appeared in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars: And being with child, she cried travailing in birth, and was in pain to be delivered.
And there was seen another sign in heaven: and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads, and ten horns: and on his head seven diadems:
And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to be delivered; that, when she should be delivered, he might devour her Son.
And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with an iron rod: and her Son was taken up to God, and to His throne- The Revelations (Apocalypse) of St. John 12:1-5
On the days of December ninth through the twelfth in 1531, the twelfth year of the reign of Emperor and King Charles V, our Lady appeared to the Aztec Cuauhtlatoatzin, who had taken the baptismal name of Juan Diego. Five times she appeared to him, and the final time she appeared to him she left the Indian with a miraculous image of herself, an image which exists to this day. The natives, hitherto slaves of a bloodthirsty almost demonic cult, flocked to the image of our Mother and were converted.
