Devotion to the Virgin Mary, a vital part of Mexican life, has been characterized by need, miracles, and love for 500 years. To shrines throughout the country, millions of Mexicans make their way each year, moving to the sound of Indian drums and pipes, oompah bands, and mariachi brasses. They come in buses and cars. On bicycles, and on foot. Some are barefoot. Some enter the shrines on their knees. The histories and miracles of Our Lady of Guadalupe and her other selves (Our Lady of the Remedies, La Soledad, the Virgin of San Juan) come alive as Mexican scholars and pilgrims on the road tell the wondrous stories behind their devotion to their spiritual Madrecita. Impressive sites such as Teotihuacan and Monte Alban suggest the strength of pre-Christian life and spiritual seeking. In ancient times, the Mexicans tell us, “there was always a mother…but never like the Virgin Mary.”
