There so many Saints in December It Was Difficult to Choose

Saint Juan Diego
In December 1531, Saint Juan Diego saw the Blessed Virgin Mary, who requested that a chapel be built for her. In response to the bishop's request for a sign, Mary gave Juan Diego a gift of roses in winter as well as a miraculous image of her on his cloak. That iconic image of Our Lady of Guadalupe is enshrined today at a basilica in Mexico City, where more than 20 million people venerate Our Lady every year. Learn more about Saint Juan Diego from Fr. Ryan Pietrocarlo, CSC, pastor of Saint Adalbert's, in the video below.
