Today is the feast of San Juan Diego, the first apostle of the New Evangelization.
Prayer to Saint Juan Diego
We come to you,
dear Juan Diego,
chosen messenger of
Our Lady of Guadalupe.
We ask you now to be our messenger.
Take this, our petition,
to the throne of God,
but take it first
to our merciful Mother,
and receive her approving sign.
Then your voice will be magnified
and will ring with the sweet authority of her own.
May you intercede on our behalf
and may blessings fall from heaven,
as roses fell from your mantle
and revealed to us Mary’s sacred image painted there
by the finger of God
for us to cherish forever. Amen.
Saint Juan Diego, our heavenly messenger, pray for us!
