JUAN DIEGO - MESSENGER OF GUADALUPEIn 1591 Juan Diego found himself between the two vastly different worlds of the Spanish conquerors and of his own Aztec heritage. Because of his love for his people and his strong faith, Juan Diego turned to Jesus and His Mother, Mary, to help unite his people. The answer to Juan Diego’s prayers has become one of the greatest events that has ever occurred in the Americas.Juan Diego: Messenger of Guadalupe is the true story of how the Blessed Mother chose a man who lived a simple, faithful life to play a central role in a beautiful miracle that would unite diverse peoples and change the course of history.As Our Lady of Guadalupe requested, a church was built in Mexico City where she appeared. It is at that Basilica, the most visited Catholic shrine in the world, that the miracle of the tilma of Juan Diego may still be seen, just as it was seen by the bishop in 1531.
