Our Lady and the Tilma

Our Lady's Response to Legalized Abortion in Mexico

We know that on April 24th, very sadly the Municipal Council of Mexico
legalized abortion. Mexico was one of the few remaining countries where
abortion was still illegal up to now. Something extraordinary then
happened:

In the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico, the "Tilma" of Juan
Diego is on display for all to see. It serves as a reminder of how the
Blessed Mother miraculously converted thousands of Aztec Indians in the
16th Century through her image imprinted on the Tilma. Today, through
the same Tilma, it seems that the Blessed Mother wants to speak to us
again, quietly expressing her reaction to abortion.

The same day abortion was legalized in Mexico, after a mass offered for
unborn children, a very intense light appeared suddenly on the Tilma.
At the level of the womb, the light appeared like a shiny halo, in the
shape of an embryo. Experts have testified that it is not a reflection
or something added, rather it comes from the Tilma and is in the exact
location of a woman's womb. Witnesses were able to take photographs and
even to film the phenomenon that went on for a full hour.

Father Luis Matos (from the Beatitudes Community) tells us:

"The engineer Luis Girault who studied one of the pictures that was
taken of the light, has confirmed the authenticity of the proof and was
able to specify that the proof had not been modified, nor altered with
the superposition of another picture for example. He has discovered that
the image is not the result of a reflection, but literally comes from
the inside of the image of Our Lady. The resulting light is very white,
pure and intense, different from the glow coming from the flash of a
camera. This light is surrounded by a halo and seems to be floating
inside the abdomen of Our Lady. This halo has the shape and proportion
of an embryo. If one is to examine this picture even more closely by
turning it on a sagittal plane, it is then possible to distinguish
inside the halo certain shadowy areas with the characteristics of a
human embryo inside the maternal womb."

It is beautiful to see the delicate manner Our Mother from Heaven uses
to express herself: in front of this new law that hurts thousands of her
children and that would certainly not be a source of blessings for
Mexico, she remains silent in her suffering, she does not partake in
vain debates. No, she helps us re-center our eyes on the One she
carries, the Light of the world, the Savior, the One who came in the
world small, vulnerable defenseless, like all children before being
born. By showing us the Child-Jesus alive like a unborn child inside
her, she gives us an answer without words that reflects the Gospel:
"What you do to the least of these little ones of mine, you do to me".
(Matthew 25:40)

It's likely I missed the talk about this if there has been talk before. If anyone knows anything more (true, not true, etc) please let me know!
