On December 12th the Church celebrates the Feast of "Our Lady of Guadalupe", that is we celebrate the apparitions of Mary at the hill of Tepeyac from December 9 to December 12, 1531; when she appeared to Juan Diego, a convert.

Pope Pius XII declared Our Lady of Guadalupe the "Patroness of the Americas"

Pope St. John XXIII addressed Our Lady of Guadalupe as "Mother and Teacher of the Faith to the peoples of the Americas."

Pope St. John Paul II visited the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City, Mexico in 1979 and in his homily referred to her as the "Virgin of Guadalupe, Mother of the Americas" he also said that she was the "Star of Evangelization>" 

Pope St. John Paul II visiting the Basilica again in 1999 named Our Lady of Guadalupe the "Protectress of the Unborn" and "placed under her motherly care the innocent lives of children, especially those in danger of not being born."  At the same mass Pope St. John Paul II also declared Our Lady of Guadalupe the "Mother and Evangelizer of America"
