OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE

A dignified narrative describes the course of events in the life of the Indian peasant whose vision of the Virgin led to the building of Mexico's large basilica, and the establishment of Our Lady of Guadalupe as the patron saint of the Catholic Americas. It is a short account, written in swift sure sentences that add color and drama to Juan Diego's visitations, his repudiation by church authorities and final acceptance. For the illustrations, Jean Charlot's sad eyed, heavy massed people will have their appeal for those who like his style. They convey an appropriate solidarity and wonderment.
