 Our Description

In 1531 Juan Diego found himself caught between two worlds...that of the Spanish conquerors and that 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 for their help in uniting his people.

The answer to Juan Diego's prayer has become one of the greatest events in the history of the Americas.

JUAN DIEGO, MESSENGER OF GUADALUPE is the true story of how the Blessed Mother chose a hero for a key role in a beautiful miracle that would unite diverse peoples and change the course of history.

In the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City the miracle of the tilma of Juan Diego may still be seen, just as it was seen by the bishop in 1531.

This DVD version contains English, Spanish and French versions as well as chapter selection.
