Catholic News Agency reports that two U.S. Catholic bishops said at the "Ecclesia in America" conference in Rome that nearly 500 years later, Our Lady of Guadalupe is still drawing men and women of the Americas to Christ.

"What has been proposed to us afresh is the image and the presence of Our Lady of Guadalupe, and her perfectly enculturated presentation of the Gospel in America," Archbishop William E. Lori of Baltimore told EWTN News Dec. 12.

"It's an amazing story. The more you contemplate the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe the more you see how she speaks to all of America. How she brings Christ to us, and how she brings us to Christ."
