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.
