The Virgin Mary

Relationship: Im/migrant

The Virgin Mary is a saint or the mother in my country. She was a saint who appeared to Juan Diego. She wanted him to go to the monks and tell them she was real. He did what she said but the people didn't believe him so Juan Diego went back to Virgin Mary and said that they didn't believe him. Then the Virgin Mary told him to go to a hill and get some flowers and bring them to her. Juan Diego did as she asked and she touched the flowers to make an image of herself in his clothes. Juan Diego went back to the church and they believed him. She is very special to my family and me because we worship her. She has been a legend to me. She is a person who has gone through a lot. Her story has been passed down through generations in my family.
