Our Lady of Guadalupe : the miraculous tilma

This is the actual tilma* of San Juan Diego, not a replica. This hangs, in the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, high up on the wall with moving walkways in front of it. They moved it out behind the altar in the santuary of the church on our Lady's feast day, which was December 12th.

*The tilma is a perpetual miracle, with the image (apparition of Our Lady) floating atop the tilma fabric which is made from cactus and should've lasted only about 20 years, not the over 500 years it has & remains today completely incorrupt.
