THE MIRACULOUS IMAGE:
On August 3, 2008, while on retreat at Mount St. Mary’s University in Emmitsburg, Maryland, Sister M. Paula Beierschmitt, a religious of “The Congregation of the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary” (I.H.M.) and a highly talented artist, photographed an outdoor mosaic of Our Lady of Guadalupe. When the photograph was developed it revealed a luminescent image of Our Lady of Guadalupe hovering in front of the mosaic. This luminescent image was not visible to Sister Paula or her companions when the photograph was taken. Professional photographers have determined the “luminescence” is part of the negative; neither the photograph nor the negative had been modified in any way. There has been no viable explanation for this “luminescence”; it appears to be a miraculous phenomenon.
OUR LADY’S DIRECTIVE TO SISTER PAULA:
Through prayer Sister Paula discerned the luminescent image was a sign from the Blessed Mother. The Blessed Mother wanted a statue of her created in the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the Patroness of the Americas, artistry resembling the miraculous Saint Juan Diego’s tilma (poncho or cloak) but with specific enhancements, as directed by the Blessed Mother.
While walking in front of a building on the heavily traveled South Broad Street in Philadelphia on Pentecost Sunday, the Blessed Mother told sister she wanted her statue placed at that location. Sister Paula entered the business and proceeded to tell the owner what the Blessed Mother wanted. He immediately agreed to have the completed statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe placed on his property for all travelers to see and to pray at.
Sister Paula chose her trusted friend, Steve Kilpatrick, to create this divinely inspired and directed statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
Before the clay statue was fully completed Sister Paula told Steve she believed the Blessed Mother wanted her statue replicated many times and placed throughout the United States and beyond because the statues would create a resurgence in the protection of life and because the people don’t know Her and soon they will need to come to Her. Sister went on to say, “Many miracles will come from this.”
Once the statue was sculpted in clay, it was blessed and then delivered to the bronze foundry where a mold of the clay statue was made; from that mold the first finished bronze casting (or statue) was produced. This is the statue you see in the photograph with Pope Francis. In the Spring of 2015, Steve Kilpatrick received a surprising email informing him the nearly completed first bronze casting of the Broad Street statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe was to be temporarily placed in the magnificent Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul in Philadelphia and remain there for the upcoming World Meeting of Families and Pope Francis’ visit.
On May 31, 2015 the first completed bronze casting of this divinely directed statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe was installed in the sanctuary of the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul.
On September 26, 2015 before Mass started in the crowded Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul, Pope Francis honored the Blessed Mother by going out of his way to stop at this divinely inspired statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe, placing white roses there and praying to the Blessed Mother asking for her help.
