Juan Diego Has a Presence in Toronto

MEXICO CITY, JULY 24, 2002 (Zenit.org).- Devotees of Juan Diego are getting ready for his July 31 canonization — by making his image known at World Youth Day.

Diego Monroy Ponce, rector of the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, is sending some 5,000 holy cards with Blessed Juan Diego’s picture to Toronto.

The Nahui Ollin theater group will perform “Miracle of Tepeyac” during World Youth Day, providing insight to the apparition of the Virgin of Guadalupe.

Young pilgrims in Canada will also be given pocket-size images of the Virgin of Guadalupe. The pictures have been authorized by Cardinal Norberto Rivera Carrera, archbishop primate of Mexico.
