CIUDAD DE MeXICO (ACI Prensa) - La imagen fue llevada a America por el conquistador espanol Juan Rodriguez de Villafuerte, con la confianza en que Santa Maria, en su advocacion de Virgen de los Remedios, lo cuidaria en las batallas que habria de librar.

La imagen de la Virgen de los Remedios estuvo presente ademas en la primera Misa celebrada en el territorio continental del actual Mexico, el 17 de marzo de 1520, por el fraile mercedario Bartolome Olmedo, en lo que dias despues se llamaria la villa de Santa Maria de la Victoria en el estado de Tabasco.

En esa celebracion se bautizo ademas a 20 indigenas, entre ellos Malintzin, a quien se puso por nombre Marina, conocida como "la Malinche".

Al llegar a Tenochtiltlan, la actual Ciudad de Mexico, a fines de 1519, Hernan Cortes ordeno a Rodriguez de Villafuerte que reemplazara el idolo de Huitzilopochtli, ante el que se realizaban sacrificios humanos, por la imagen de la Virgen de los Remedios.

Ahi permanecio por algunas semanas hasta "la noche triste", como se conoce a la noche del 30 de junio de 1520, en que los aztecas expulsaron de Tenochtiltlan a las tropas espanolas.

Durante la huida espanola, la imagen quedo escondida en un maguey y no fue encontrada hasta 1540 por el cacique indigena Juan de aguila.

Luego se construyo una ermita para la Virgen que hoy es la Basilica de Nuestra Senora de los Remedios, en la Arquidiocesis de Tlanepantla, a 18 kilometros al norte de Ciudad de Mexico.
