Our Lady of Guadalupe | Fir Needles + Castilian Roses

These serene scents of fir needles and Castilian roses are inspired by Our Lady of Guadalupe. 

Behind the Inspiration

When Mary appeared to the Mexican St. Juan Diego, she told him to tell the bishop to build a chapel at the apparition site. This was hard for the bishop to believe, and he told Juan Diego that he must have proof. When Juan Diego next saw Our Lady, she told him to go to a nearby hill and gather roses to give to the bishop. Despite the impossibility of roses growing in winter, Juan Diego obeyed and found beautiful roses that he gathered in his cloak and brought to show the bishop.

Upon opening his cloak, the roses fell to his feet, and the bishop recognized them as Castilian roses, which only grew in his native Spain. But even more miraculous was the image now seen on the cloak, that of a Mexican woman with child, standing on a moon and clothed in stars. This image, that of Our Lady of Guadalupe, is still visible almost 500 years later.

Our Lady of Guadalupe is the patron saint of the unborn, the Americas, and Mexico, and her prayers are frequently invoked by expectant mothers, and for help with pregnancy and with prolife causes.

This apparition is the only time Mary has appeared pregnant, and it seems particularly meaningful since it occurred during Advent, when we remember how she carried Our Lord and prepared for his birth on Christmas Day. Her feast day is December 12.

Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us.

Perfect for Christmastime!

I first got one of these as a tealight sample and thought "this would be perfect for Advent/Christmas" so I ordered a full-size one to use this December. It has a very subtle, lovely scent!

Corda brings a fragrant light in to my home!

I put the "Our Lady of Guadalupe" candle in my office to remind me of Her presence. I have a variety of Corda candles, and all of them have a 'spiritual' quality, a wonderful scent, and are long lasting.
Thank you Corda!
