Virgin of Guadalupe

The Virgin of Guadalupe is everywhere in San Miguel. She is a very powerful icon to look at, and the story is also quite powerful. Of course there are the skeptical criticisms of this story and further allegations that this was just one more, of the many, mechanisms employed to convert the indigenous people to Christianity - not only was there a miracle, but the directive to build a church on the very site of an Aztec temple dedicated to an earth goddess(click link to see more images from Day 4).
