WHAT: The Missionary Images are actual size (4’ X 6’) replicas of the original Miraculous Image of Our Lady which she left on Saint Juan Diego’s cloak (tilma). They were blessed at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico by the Rector of the Basilica to bring conversions, reverence for life, sanctity of the family and solidarity of the Church in America. They have journeyed on Visitations in the New Evangelization throughout the world. The images have visited each state of the United States in over one thousand parishes and have received the veneration of hundreds of thousands. There have been hundreds of Masses, Confessions, hours of adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and Rosaries in the presence of the Images. Many signs, wonders, conversions, healings, reconciliations and graces have been reported.
WHO: The Guardian of the Missionary Images is Dan Lynch of St. Albans, Vermont. Mr. Lynch is the Director of a nonprofit tax-exempt apostolate that coordinates the Journey of the Images. He is also a retired Judge of the State of Vermont, an author, public speaker and audio and video producer. Mr. Lynch is the author of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Hope for the World which explains the history of Our Lady of Guadalupe and her modern mission to end abortion and bring conversions in the New Evangelization. He is also the author of The Call to Total Consecration, which explains the spirituality of St. Louis de Montfort and the Holy Father’s Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary and Teresita’s Choices, a dramatic testimony of life, healing and hope by a victim of abortion. He also produced the video Our Lady of Guadalupe, Mother of Hope! He is the father of nine children and lives in Vermont.
HOW: The Missionary Images are sent to local Guardian Teams who have requested Visitations. They prepare the reception and coordinate all liturgical events with the local pastors. The Visitations often includes churches, abortion centers, monasteries, convents, prisons, hospitals, nursing homes and schools. If you would like to sponsor a Visitation, please contact us.
MISSION: Pope John Paul II asked Our Lady of Guadalupe “to visit” as a ‘pilgrim of faith’ each and every diocese, parish, and family in America” in a New Evangelization. The United States bishops entrusted this evangelization to Our Lady of Guadalupe. They said, “We entrust our commitment to giving birth with new fervor to the life of the Gospel in our hemisphere, to Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Americas. She truly was the first Christ-bearer, by her maternal intercession, may her faithful sons and daughters be renewed and discover afresh the joy and splendor and promise of being bearers of the good news.”
The mission of the Missionary Image apostolate is to bring conversions, reverence for life, sanctity of the family and solidarity of the Church in America with the end of abortion and the culture of death and a new culture of life and civilization of love through the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
