Bolivia Postage of Saint Juan Diego-US Postage Designer Rex Davenport
President Evo Morales Juan Diego was born in 1474 in the Calpulli or ward of talyacac in Cauhtitlan, which was established in 1168 A.D. by Nahua Tribemen and conquered by the Aztec lord Axayacatl in 1467 A.D. and was located 20 kilometers North of Mexico City as we know of it today. On the Morning of December 9, 1531, a Native Mexican by the Name of Juan Diego rose before dawn to walk to mass in Mexico City and heard music and saw a glowing cloud encircled by a rainbow and a woman's voice as the sound of many waters called him to the top of the hill and there he saw a beautiful young woman, and she said she was the Virgin Mary. She had asked Juan Diego to tell the Bishop to build a church on this site on the top of this hill because this was the will of Mother Mary, then Juan Diego complied with the wishes of Mother Mary and had told the Bishop of his vision
and the request of the Virgin Mother Mary to build a church on the top of that hill. The Bishop was very skeptical and he had asked Juan Diego to bring proof of the lady's Indentity. Juan Diego had told the Blessed Mother Mary of this incounter regarding the Bishop and then told Juan Diego to climb to the top of the hill and pick the roses from the cold soil, Juan Diego had picked up the roses and was shocked to find flowers growing in the frozen soil, and snow. Juan Diego had then gathered them all on the top of the hill and had placed them in his cloak and had took them at once to the Bishop, and
at once Juan Diego had opened his cloak and a very strong sweet smell came from the cloak and the Bishop had notice inside Juan Diego's cloak the glowing image of the Lady, or Virgin Mother Mary imprinted inside Juan Diego's cloak and then the Castilian Roses (which are not grown in the Winter fell down on the floor in which the flowers were in complete blooming season that had fallen in front of the Bishop). The Bishop then had fallen to his knees and prayed unto the Lord God Almighty for forgiveness, and today it is called "Our Lady of Guadalupe."
