Life of Our Lady of Light
The iconography of the well-known Virgin of Light has its origin in the well-known city of Palermo located in Italy, during the year 1722, when a nun came to have a vision in which an image of the Virgin Mary was presented to her, which she tried to not fall into the jaws of an evil monster, as long as she held her soul.
The image of said vision was captured by a renowned painter on the same dates of the year 1722, and which later came to be preserved in the city of Palermo until the end of the year 1732.
When it becomes the object of lottery by a father named José Genovesi for the transfer to a certain recent foundation of the Society of Jesus, becoming in luck transferred on July 2, 1732 to the Jesuit church of León located in Guanajuato, city of the Mexican nation, which since 2005 has been called the Basilica – Metropolitan Cathedral of Our Blessed Mother of Light.
From that moment, the Jesuit believers were responsible for spreading their worship throughout all areas of the American continent. The representation of the Virgin of Light tends to be the one where it shows the Virgin Mary who avoids falling into the jaws of an evil monster, while she tried to hold her soul and also the baby Jesus.
The Virgin Mary arrives dressed in a white tunic and with a blue mantle, this is very similar to that of the iconography of the immaculate conception, which comes to symbolize purity and chastity, on a background that is golden yellow. In her arms she came to hold with her right hand the figure of a soul, and with her left arm she holds the Child Jesus himself.
Which manages to grab a pair of burning hearts that were given to him by an angel and that he offers in a basket. Burning hearts tend to symbolize charity and also love of God.
Above the head of the Virgin Mary there are a couple of angels who come to crown her as the queen of heaven, meanwhile, at her feet, a monster called Leviathan is waiting for her with his jaws open to grab her. The figure of the leviathan came to be censored from the year 1760 by the same Roman Catholic church and came to be changed by flames that tended to allude to purgatory, or to some species of dark clouds that come to symbolize the sin of humanity.
