The Colombian Post Talk, Tell, Post - INTERVIEW TO “LA JUANA”

INTERVIEW TO “LA JUANA”

INTERVIEWER: Good morning, welcome to our program ``Remembering our history``.

Today we have the presence of some characters who witnessed the appearance of the Virgin of Las Lajas, some years ago.

WELCOME TO OUR PROGRAM…..

MARIA: Thank you for inviting us to your program.

INTERVIEWER: Tell us about yourself?

MARIA: I’m Maria Mueses de Quiñones, but everyone calls me “La Juana”. I have a little daughter who was deaf-mute from birth.

INTERVIEWER: What’s your name?

ROSA: My name is Rosita, I live with my mother in Potosí.

INTERVIEWER: Maria, describe a typical workday, please?

MARIA: Well, every day, I get up early and go to work to the city of Ipiales with my little daughter.

INTERVIEWER: Where do you work Ms. Quiñones?

MARIA: I do the chores in the Torresanos’ house.

INTERVIEWER: We know that you participated in the miracle of the apparition of the Virgin.

MARIA: Yes, of course. One day, after chores I returned to my home in Potosí carrying on my back my little daughter Rosa. We stopped to rest at a cave over the Guaitara River and Rosa spoke.

INTERVIEWER: Oh really?

ROSA: Yes, I began yelling “Mommy, mommy… The Mestiza is calling me”.

MARIA: I was very surprised to hear my daughter speaking for the first time.

INTERVIEWER: What did you do?

MARIA: I continued my way and the following day, I told my employers the Torresanos, the priest and other people of what has happened.

INTERVIEWER: What happened after?

MARIA: Many people went to the big cave of rocks and saw for the first time with indescribable emotion the Virgin of Las Lajas.

INTERVIEWER: When did this miracle happened?

MARIA: This event occurred on September 15th 1754 and since then a traditional festival is celebrated on this date.

INTERVIEWER: Thank you for sharing this beautiful experience.

MARIA: You’re welcome.

INTERVIEWER: Today from Las Lajas… tomorrow from anywhere in the world.
