~  WHAT DOES THE NAME MEAN? ~
WHERE DOES 
THE NAME COME FROM?
  The name Guadalupe was originally believed by the Spanairds to come from the devotion in Spain called Guadalupe which means. Others believed they miss heard the name: 
+
GUADALUPE
"the dark Virgin, Guadalupe, patroness of West Central Spain"
+
COATLAXOPEUH
or Coatlaxopeuh,  "She Who Has Dominion over Serpents"
Coatlallope”  “one who treads over snakes”.
+
TEQUANTLANOPEUH
"She who originated from the summit of the rocks" (Tepeyac hill) She asked for a church to be built in this spot over the traditional temple of the Aztec Mother Earth Goddess, Tonontzin. The image of our Lady of Guadalupe shows her carrying the yet to be born baby Jesus under her her heart. Like a 'Tabernacle' , Mary 'the church' would hold the Eucharistic Christ.

1491- 1531 = 40 YEARS - RENAMED THE 3 SHIPS
 HE WAS DEDICATED TO THE IMMACULADA
 Columbus was 40 years old in 1491 when Father Perez, (Queen Isabellas confessor) urged the Queen to allow Columbus to sail the ocean blue.  Before sailing, Columbus, officers and crew received the Sacraments of Penance and Holy Eucharist from Father Juan Perez, (see Catholic Encyclopedia)and renamed his three ships La Niña ("The Girl"), and La Pinta ("Paint") and La Santa María de la Immaculada Concepción.  Reviewing these names today it is as if the ships were announcing the coming of our Lady of Guadalupe 40 years later. Her first apparition to Juan Diego would be on Dec 9, 1531 - the Feast of the Immaculate Conception in Spain and 40 years after Fr Perez had convinced the Queen in 1491.

SPANISH COLONIZATION OF NEW WORLD
Columbus was searching for a new route to India but bumped into some little islands off the coast and south of a great new world, all of which he claimed for Spain. He named several of the islands in the new world: San Salvidore ("Savior") in the Bahamas, followed by Santa Maria de la Concepcíon.  On his second voyage he named another island "Santa María de Guadalupe" after the Virgin Mary, venerated in the Spanish town of Guadalupe - without any knowledge she was to come and bring blessings to the shores of the Americas 40 years later.




~ MYSTERY of the EYES ~
  VIRGIN OF GUADALUPE'S 
EYES TELL OF MYSTERY
IBM Expert Talks of Microscopic Images Imprinted on Tilma
MADRID, Spain, JULY 17, 2002 (Zenit.org).- In 1929, a microscopic figure was discovered in the eyes of the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe. Since then, the mystery of her pupils has challenged science. One of the men who have expended the most energy in trying to cast light on this image is Peruvian scientist José Aste Tonsmann, an expert at International Business Machines in the digital processing of images. Twenty-two years ago, Aste decided to investigate the presence of other figures reflected in the Virgin's eyes and, in fact, found 12.
+
On July 31, John Paul II will canonize Indian Juan Diego, the witness of the Guadalupe apparitions, in Mexico.
When the human eye focuses, the objects it is looking at are reflected in its retina. "Right now I am reflected in your eye," Aste explained to an interviewer. "According to whether the object is close or far, it will be reflected in a larger or smaller size in the ocular globe," he said. "And this is what happens with the eyes of the Virgin of Guadalupe. The image reflected in her two retinas is that of the moment when the Virgin left her imprint on Juan Diego's tilma."
+
Q: Can these figures be the work of humans?
+
Aste: No, for three reasons. In the first place, they are not visible to the human eye, except for one: that of the Spaniard, which is the largest. Nobody could have painted such tiny silhouettes.
+
In the second place, the origin of the pigments of these figures is unknown. The same is true of the Virgin's image. It is not painted, and no one yet knows how it was stamped on Juan Diego's tilma.
+
Q: And the third?
+
Aste: The three figures are reproduced in both eyes. What artist would do that? Moreover, their size varies from one eye to the other, according to how close the personage was to the Virgin's left or right eye.
+
Q: What process did you follow in your experiment?
+
Aste: First photographs are taken of the eyes. Then they are digitalized. They are read by the computer, enlarged and screened from the images.
+
Q: Who appears in the eyes?
+
Aste: There is a virtually naked servant; an elderly man -- Bishop Friar Juan de Zumárraga; a youth -- the interpreter; an Indian with a tilma -- Juan Diego; a black woman -- a slave; a bearded Spaniard; and, lastly, an Indian family including father, mother, three children and two more adults, who could be grandparents or uncles.
+
Q: How do you know that the other figures correspond to the slave, the interpreter, etc.?
+
Aste: There is evidence in history. The elderly man who appears in the Virgin's eyes looks very much like the paintings of that period of Bishop Zumárraga. As to the black slave, Zumárraga said in his will that he released her. We also know that she was called Maria. In the Indies Archives there is a record of the bishop's embarkation when he left for the New World.
