About St. Juan Diego

His name was Juan Diego, and while genetically he was related to the American Indians, he was a peasant of Mexico, and the recipient of Christ’s mother’s messages to the indigenous natives of Mexico.  Her image on his tilma (cloak) has survived since 1531 despite climate change and a terrorist attack.

Juan is now a saint of the Catholic Church, and his cloak is on display at the basilica of Guadalupe just a little outside of Mexico City.  His patroness, Our Lady of Guadalupe, is known for many intercessions on behalf of the poor and afflicted who seek her out in prayer.  Her shrine is the most visited religious shrine in the world.

If you believe enough, she’ll speak for you and your prayer.
