Vayan Con Dios Vayan con Dios which means go with god was an expression Dona Guadalupe said to Don Benito and Victoriano before they headed out for the gold the second time I noticed that most of the characters in the book seem to be religious and have a strong belief in God Throughout the book Dona Guadalupe and Victoriano speak of God and his miracles many timesThis led me to believe that the people of Mexico were very religious in the sense that they associated the things that happen in their daily lives with God Since my term vayan con dios was an expression there wasnt really much information I could find on it With the help of Mrs Edwards I started to research on why people in mexico were so religious Although Mexican governments since the revolution have been unsupportive of religion more than 95 of the population professes to believe in Catholicism This is because in 1523 Hernan Cortes and his Cnquistadors the first Roman Catholic missionaries began the religious conquest of mexico From there Catholicism was spread throughout mexico Since 1531 the most binding symbol of the Church has been the miracle of the dark-skinned Virgin of Guadalupe This story begins on Dec 9 1531 with a man named Juan Diego He was crossing a berren hill called Tepeyac in the outskirts of mexico to attend church Virgin Mary appeared before his eyes and desired him to have a church built on Tepeyac hill and asked him to ask Bishop Juan de Zumarraga The bishop demanded he needed proof of the encounter first Juan avoided the hill for several days but on december 12 he crossed the hill to find a priest to see his very ill uncle The Virgin appeared again and Juan told her he needed proof of his account She told him to pick roses from the hill and give them to Zumarraga
