St. Juan Diego
by: Caitlin, Dyon, Cayde, & Khoa
Ten years after the conquest of Mexico, St. Juan Diego became a new convert to the Catholic faith.
- He was walking to Mass when Mary appeared to him.
- She asked him to go to the Bishop to ask that a temple be created in her name.
- He did as she asked and went to the Bishop.
Mary ordered St. Juan Diego to go a nearby hill to gather roses that he would deliver to the Bishop.
- this was significant within itself because it was not the time of year that roses grew.
