The Feast of Saint Juan Diego Cuauhtlatoatzin

“Today the church celebrates The Feast of Saint Juan Diego, who has a last name that I can’t begin to pronounce,” says Father Jerry in today’s new video. “His last name begins with a C and means The Talking Eagle.” Our Lady appeared four times to this native convert at Tepeyac near Mexico City. Known for his holiness, he devoted himself, tradition says, to the pilgrims who came to see the miraculous image of Mary imprinted on his tilma, or cloak. Pope John Paul II canonized him on the 31st of July 2002.
