Our Lady of Guadalupe is one of the most wide-spread devotions in the Americas. Many of us are familiar with the events surrounding the apparitions of Our Lady in 1521. However, people are less familiar with St. Juan Diego, who was the one chosen by Our Lady to take her message to the bishop. He is a very interesting character because he lived at a time of seismic change for the peoples of Mexico and Latin American.
