The 1st Amazing Miracle - Our Lady
of San Juan de Los Lagos:
According to local histories, and some
eyewitness accounts, a certain aerial
acrobat was traveling along the Camino
Real, performing in the towns along
the way. His act included his wife and
two daughters. His stunts included
swinging from one high point to another
by means of ropes. To add excitement
and an element of danger, the artists
had to fly over swords and knives
that were stuck in the ground with
their points positioned upward.
While performing in the village, the
younger daughter, a child of six or seven,
slipped, fell upon the knives and was
mortally wounded. After preparing
the body and wrapping it in burial
cloths, the grieving parents brought
the child's body to the chapel of
Our Lady of San Juan for burial.
Meeting them at the door of the chapel
was the 78-year-old Ana Lucia, the
wife of Pedro Antes (the caretaker
and custodian of the beloved statue).
Feeling pity for the grieving family,
she exhorted them to have confidence
in The Virgin, who could restore
the child to them.
