In Our Lady of Guadalupe: Mother of the Civilization of Love, Carl Anderson, the leader of the Knights of Columbus presents a provocative book that looks to unite all Catholics under the extremely popular figure of Our Lady of Guadalupe. His investigation into the mystery of the Virgin Mary's appearance in Mexico in 1531 seeks to enliven the cultural richness of the Catholic Church in the Americas by embracing Our Lady of Guadalupe as the patroness of all the Americas, accessible to English- and Spanish-speaking Catholics alike.
The book begins by explaining the history of the apparition of Our Lady to a native peasant, Juan Diego, in Mexico in the 16th century and shows how she has become one of the most important Catholic figures in the Western Hemisphere. Looking at Our Lady of Guadalupe as a model of the Church and as a model of all Christians who seek to answer God's call to conversion, the authors show how her message was not only historically significant but how it speaks to contemporary issues confronting people today.
