Our Lady of GuadalupeOur Lady of Guadalupe is a powerful pro-life Intercessor. 

The Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe is one of only four (4’X6’) digital replicas of the miraculous tilma of Juan Diego.  Blessed at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City, it travels the world bringing conversions, healings, reconciliations and graces.

In 2012, Iowa had 26 Planned Parenthood clinics. Today, it has just six. Prolife advocates attribute the closing of the clinics to intercession from Our Lady of Guadalupe.

In 2012, a team of volunteers wrote to the Apostolate of the Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe, in Vermont, asking for a visit to Iowa. From March 25-April 9 that year, the image traveled to Planned Parenthood clinics, churches, schools, and rehabilitation centers. Another visitation occurred in 2019.
