Juan Diego  - DVD

Illustrated by Steve Johnson & Lou Fancher

Every December, Grandma Lupita tells Rose the true story of Our Lady of Guadalupe. As they make paper flowers to put around her statue, Grandma begins: Long ago, in the year 1531, on a cold December morning near what is now Mexico City, a man named Juan Diego put on his cloak and started down the road to church . . . On his way, Juan Diego sees a beautiful Lady at the top of a hill. She tells Juan Diego to go to the Bishop and ask him to build a special church for her. There she will hear all the prayers and needs of her children. But the Bishop doesn't believe that Juan Diego has seen the Lady; he asks for a sign. Again the Lady sends Juan Diego, and again the Bishop asks for a sign. Until finally, she provides an amazing, miraculous sign: her beautiful image on Juan Diego's cloak for everyone to see.

The Bishop realized Juan was telling the truth, and built a great Church in her honor. Today in Mexico City the big Shrine still stands in honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe, where millions of pilgrims visit every year to show their love for Our Lady. And the same cloak that Juan Diego wore, on which the beautiful image of Our Lady was printed, still hangs in the Shrine.

This book is illustrated with many warm, lovely images that enhance the inspiring story
