Daniel de Jesus – Montserrat, 2014


Based of the La Virgen de Monserrate who may be the most popular of all religious figures celebrated in Puerto Rico. Many refer to her both as Montserrate and as her uniquely Puerto Rican manifestaDon, El Milagro de Hormigueros (The Miracle from Hormigueros). In 1599, Our Lady of Montserrat appeared to Gerardo González, a farmer, near Hormigueros, in southwestern Puerto Rico. Attacked by a bull, González invoked the name of the Virgin. Immediately, the beast fell, its legs broken and its forehead touching the ground as if in prayer. In graDtude, González built and dedicated a church to Our Lady of Montserrat. This popular image always depicts the Virgin with a man and kneeling bull.
