Eclipse 1524 AD

This solar eclipse was seen by the Aztecs in modern day Mexico City. It is no coincidence Juan Diego was baptized in 1524-25 after this solar eclipse. It also bears remembering that Jesus Christ likely chose His baptism at the time of the 29 AD solar eclipse in Israel. The similarities of the political, military and cultural upheaval between the Aztec and ancient Israel societies are profound. The Aztec Civilization was in ruin. Human sacrifice had stopped and it is likely the Aztecs were absolutely convinced the world was about to end. The Aztec willpower was broken after this eclipse. It is likely Our Lady chose Juan Diego because his willpower was broken. There is no other natural event that makes humanity more worried about survival than a solar eclipse. Seven years after his baptism she chose to help heal the Aztec people of miseries of war, mumps, and smallpox. The Tilma became the new Roman legionary standard and the Shroud of Turin combined. It bears witness to the Glory of Jesus Christ.

2000 years ago the cross was a Roman symbol of death and terror. Jesus Christ transformed this symbol into a universal sign of God's love, hope and resurrection. Solar eclipse events are recorded in Roman mythology during the conception of Romulus and Remus by the war god Mars and during the foundation of the city of Rome. The solar eclipse to the Romans was a sign from their gods that war was upon the Earth. The solar eclipse symbol of the star/pellet within the crescent on Roman coins and legionary standards was also a sign of their god's approval of Roman domination over conquered lands. Fifteen hundred years later, the "Our Lady of Guadalupe" Icon was presented to the New World as an inverted Roman Legionary Standard. Jesus Christ changed these symbols of Roman domination and slavery into an everlasting sign of God's love and compassion.
