Who is Juan Diego?

Juan Diego was a Mexican friar. He was most well known for his apparitions from Mary and his contributions to the growth of the faith in Mexico. One miracle he experienced was the healing of his sick uncle by Mary. God acted through him by guiding him on the path to sainthood and by giving him the knowledge to persevere when the bishop did not believe his story.
