There are some errors here. For example, the tilma does not radiate a temperature consistent with the human body, nor is there any noise detectable by a stethoscope, nor do the colors float. Everything else is pretty accurate. But it pains me that articles like this are mixing up truth and falsehood. The reason I can mention that these are erros-- and with some authority-- is that I had the chance to speak at length with the postulator of the cause of the canonization of Juan Diego that is, Father Eduardo Chavez who had close contact with the scientific studies and who himself attest that there are miracles of the tilma, but the temperature, stethoscope, and floating image claims are not some of them.
What church are you appointed to, name of the church and city? Also can substantiate your claim other than just saying to have had a conversation? Philip Serna Callahan and Prof. Smith discovered that the Tilma maintains constant temperature of a living person, Dr. Carlos Fernandez del Castillo that there are heartbeats at beats per minute as when baby is in the womb heard when stethoscope is placed at the waist on the Tilma. Chavez and you have simply discarded their scientific discovery as well as scientific discoveries of colours floating above the Tilma's surface, of Our Lady's eyes behaving as being alive etc.
You disbelieve in those miraculous facts but they still exist in spite of your disbelief. Shame on you for implicitly accusing the scientists of a mortally sinful lie itself a mortal sin. I will have to agree with Fr Anthony that some of the statements might have not been well supported or documented or might have been mislead. Specifically the temperature, the heart beating and the live eyes. Graue indicated that the effects observed on the eyes give the impression of a live eye not behaving like a live eye. No doubt no human being will be able to achieve that level of perfection.
This is still inexplicable, but the closest theories are based on the how the light is reflected, a technique that no human being will be able to achieve on a painting. For objective minds the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe is still full of facts that no science can explain now, no way to produce this centuries ago.
I am a firm believer and devote of Our Lady of Guadalupe, I don't like when some statements might be misconceived-mislead and fall into fanatics, I would not agree to point fingers into people like Fr. Actually, these challenges have proven to be worthy specially when no human explanation is found. No doubt, despite some facts that might require some caution in interpretation, the image in the tilma does have a lot of facts that cannot be explained and have to be deemed as miraculous. I would like to contact the owner of this blog but there is no contact listed. Perhaps some persons are treated to miracles that others cannot conceive and believe and others are not.
These 46 stars are the most brilliant stars that surround the horizon of the Mexican Valley which have been identified.

She is showing to d world the power she has to protect, she is the mother of our lord Jesus. How wonderful it is that the tilma of our Lady maintains a body temp of How wonderful it must be to hear the heart beat of times per minute from the tilma of Our Lady.
How wonderful must it be to see the year old untarnished image of Our Lady. How wonderful it must be to observe all the scientific data associated with the Tilma of Our Lady. I hope and pray that many more people may see the image of Our Lady. I pray for the conversion of many who will study and learn of the living miracle that is Our Lady of Guadalupe. Ave Maria purisima, sin pecado en su vida.
Excuse me, can you tell me what is the reference for the NASA investigation and scientists name that are the base of this part of the article above? There are no brush strokes, or sketch marks on it.

Thomas Aquinas is so outstanding. The Lord has given him the ability to take very complex matters, such as the differences between animal, human and Angel, and break them down into logical, extremely understandable terms. He was particularly enraptured by Angels, as are we. He made a study of them.
Duguay, were convinced that Our Lady would come through. Desilets even vowed to dedicate the original church which the parish had outgrown to Our Lady of the Rosary if the river froze.

It must have been about 1, feet from the inshore ice along the southern shore… When I looked up, I saw that my two guides had moved on about feet: Still moving forward, Firmin Cadotte struck through the thin ice with the head of his axe.
The other men watched us go on, but did not dare follow, so that, in the end, my two guides and myself were the only ones to reach the south shore…. We came back at 11 p. Stopping next to the old sacristy I asked the men: The night was crisp, considering it was the end of March, and the bridge was already solid enough to walk on. Joseph], at 4 a. We sent off for some men to pour more water over our bridge and to saturate the snow which had fallen during the night.
We were beginning to be proud of our bridge. When we tested it with a blow from an axe, we found that it was already six inches thick. We had instructed Joe Bellefeuille and his son to prepare six-foot blocks of stone. While we were deciding where to open up the track there had been a great deal of snow overnight , we saw the first sleigh coming over our bridge.
Our Lady of the Cape
It was driven by Joe Longval who had been eager to bring over the first load of stones. Duguay stated that the fact that water thrown on the floating snow would run back into the river which was verified by the lanterns proved that there was no ice on the rest of the river — only on the bridge. The entire undertaking would be completed by March 25 th , the Feast of the Annunciation, the day they noticed that the bridge was beginning to melt.
I ordered a stop to the work, and no one undertook to make another voyage. It was quite extraordinary, a true miracle. It defied common sense. We immediately named it the Rosary Bridge.
