    Claims about the Tilma and the Image

    CLAIM
    The image of Bishop Zumarraga in Mary’s eyes was digitally enlarged, revealing that in his eyes is the image of St. Juan Diego opening his tilma before him.

    TRUTH
    This is false. Juan Diego is one of the reflected images in the Virgin’s eyes, and he is portrayed opening his tilma before the bishop. However, his image stands on its own in the Virgin’s eyes (which only measure 7 and 8 millimeters across), not within the eyes of the image of Bishop Zumarraga. The image of the bishop has never been enlarged, so the claim that any images are reflected in his eyes cannot be proven.
