Summary: A man is sent to Europe on a diplomatic mission, but his ship is sunk by a German submarine. In Mexico, his girlfriend Lupita receives a telegram with the news and looks for relief in La Virgen de Guadalupe, patron saint of Mexican Catholics. After reading a book about the Virgin legend, Lupita falls asleep. The next morning, she receives good news–her boyfriend is alive! Together they go to La Villa del Tepeyac (a church devoted to La Virgen de Guadalupe) and give thanks for the miracle.
