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
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.
