Description: The Virgin of Guadalupe, who appeared to the boy Juan Diego in the seventeenth century, has long been associated with miracles, faith, and Latin America. She is venerated throughout the world, symbolizing the mystic, fertile powers of women, and provoking passionate responses in writers and poets of all nationalities and religions. For some, she is the Mother of God; for others, she is the Goddess herself. She is one of the most venerated Virgins of the Catholic Church, but she is also a subversive figure who represents the power of native Mexicans to absorb Catholicism into Indian spirituality.

In this powerful, beautiful collection, some of our most beloved Latino writers show the many different ways she can be approached. Sandra Cisneros considers her the symbol of feminine sensuality. Gloria Anzaldua gleans from her hope for survival in unfamiliar territory. Luisah Teish links her to African and African American traditions. For all these writers, the Virgin of Guadalupe is a personal treasure, giving strength at unexpected times and in unusual ways, a transcendent symbol of Latin people and strong women.
