The Virgin of Guadalupe is one of the most revered deities by Mexicans. Her image has as its center of worship the Basilica of Guadalupe in CDMX, a place where, every December 12, millions of parishioners come to renew her faith and thank her for the favors received. Celebrities also profess her love for the Morenita del Tepeyac, and tell us what those moments have been when she has covered them with her mantle.
MARIBEL GUARDIA: “I ENCOMMENDED MY SON”
“I have two virgins in my heart: the one from Guadalupe and the one from Los Angeles, from Costa Rica; both appeared and are hundreds of years old with faithful who love and respect them. Last year I had the opportunity to go sing Las mañanitas for him, next to my son, and you don’t know what it meant to me: I cried with emotion, with the joy of having such a great blessing! That man who sang next to me is the child I promised him when he was going to be born. On a personal level, I have always asked the Virgin of Guadalupe for many things, and she has granted them to me. I have it at the entrance of my house as a thank you to her presence in my life. I adore the Virgin of Guadalupe!”
LUIS FELIPE TOVAR: “HE GRANTED ME THE MIRACLE OF BEING BORN”
“I am a devotee of the Virgin of Guadalupe because she granted me the miracle of being born, it is a miracle to be alive, and she continues to grant me others: to be healthy, to have a job, my children are well, my family is close to me… In addition, it allows me to always doing what I love the most and being able to share it with the new generations that pass through my school every year. They are all miracles for which I am very grateful.”

DANIELLE DITHURBIDE: “I ALWAYS PUT MY LITTLE GIRL IN HER HANDS”
“I grew up in a Catholic and extremely Guadalupana family; Furthermore, my mother’s name is Guadalupe and she is very devoted to the Virgin. I understand December 12 as a holiday and also a moment of identity for the country; Beyond our beliefs, you do not need to be Catholic or Guadalupan to feel identified in one way or another with that party. Even if you don’t practice or profess, or don’t assume yourself as a devotee, you always know that the Virgin of Guadalupe is there, and that in an emergency she can help you. I always put my little girl in her hands ”.
JULIÓN ÁLVAREZ: “HE HAS TAKEN CARE OF ME IN DIFFICULT TIMES”
“Since I was a child, faith was instilled in me by her; when we went through difficult times, she was there to take care of us. I know that talking about religion is difficult and delicate, that’s why I respect all religions and beliefs; mine is to be Guadalupano. Now, because of her work schedules, it is difficult to go see her, but if there is a chance, I go with my family to leave her some flowers, make the sign of hers and thank her ”.
MARIANA SEOANE: “SAVED MY MOTHER”
“When she had heart surgery, she had little chance of living. The Virgin of Guadalupe was my strength, she kept me firm and granted me the miracle. Today, my mom is fine, thank God. I go to the Basilica when possible, and they even know me”.
JULIÁN CABALLERO: “I COMMEND MY HEALTH AND MY CAREER TO HIM”
“Mexicans always go hand in hand with the Virgin of Guadalupe; she is a very important and strong deity historically and culturally speaking, we carry her in our blood. It is also a movement of faith that, well focused, makes us better people. Many of us hold on to it to grow, to gain strength; at least I. When my health or my career go through difficult times, I always entrust them to them; and my faith is so great that I immediately see changes. Blessed be the Virgin of Guadalupe, here we continue.
CLAUDIA CERVANTES: “IT HELPED ME WHEN THEY PUT SANTI IN MY WOMBN”
“When my son existed as an embryo in a state of cryopreservation, I went to La Villa to bring flowers and candles to the Virgin of Guadalupe. I did it with a lot of faith, so that she would intercede in the miracle of becoming a mother. So when they put Santi in my uterus, he successfully implanted. My Morenita helped me!”
