The History Of Our Lady of Suyapa

The statue of the Virgin Mary known as “Our Lady of Suyapa” is being kept at the chapel next to the Basilica de Suyapa in Honduras. The statue’s discovery and installation are the subject of several different legends.

The most widely accepted version of the Our Lady of Suyapa story states that a laborer named Alejandro Colindres miraculously found the statue. Alejandro was returning from clearing the cornfields at Piligüian Mountain when he and the eight-year-old boy he was traveling with decided to spend the night together. Alejandro was startled out of sleep by a searing pain in his side. He managed to pick it up in the dark and fling it away, only to discover it back in his bed when he went to check on it. The item turned out to be a statue of the Virgin Mary, which he later brought back to his mother’s house when he awoke in the morning. It is said that the statue was discovered and had been there for twenty years.

Because Our Lady of Suyapa is carved from cedarwood and was wearing a dark cloak when she was discovered, she is often referred to as “La Morenita,” which means “Dear Dark One.” She was named the “Patroness of Honduras” by Pope Pius XI, and a basilica was built in her honor close to the chapel to house the large throngs that assemble on her feast day.
