Juan Diego in Print

I was on e-mail, and I saw that the first written telling of the Guadalupe story was done by an American Indian educated by the Franciscans, who went on to become an important Spanish Government official.  He wrote in his native language, although he had become fluent in Spanish and Latin.

I loved reading this, because my suspicious mind had construed the story as a Franciscan invention.  It’s for real, and the miraculous cures are the proof.  I pray for Our Lady of Guadalupe’s intercession daily.

Oh Lady of Guadalupe, hear for Jesus’ ear my own story, and grant me some vindication while I’m still on earth.
