Now, to bless the on-campus shrine, the university has been entrusted with a piece of precious stone from the Hill of Tepeyac, the sacred site where Our Lady of Guadalupe revealed herself to St. Juan Diego on Dec. 9, 1531. President Thomas W. Keefe received the ancient stone from Msgr. Eduardo Chávez Sánchez, director of the Institute for Guadalupan Studies and a canon of the Basilica of Guadalupe, during a recent trip to Mexico City. The stone's presence will place the university in company with some of the most revered sites in the world, including the shrine to Our Lady of Guadalupe at Lourdes, France.
