The Lady of Guadalupe

Lady of Guadalupe   depaola

A gorgeously depicted story of the Lady of Guadalupe and her love for the people of Mexico.

In stunning words and images, Tomie dePaola renders the beautiful story of the Mother of God appearing to an indigenous man in Mexico to teach true peace to the native people. In these visitations, the Lady of Guadalupe shows her great love for the Mexican people, and proves that culture need not be obliterated to bring the Christian faith to others. The beauty of the Lady’s love is reflected in dePaola’s spectacular watercolor illustrations. ----from the publisher
