Our Lady of Guadalupe was supposed to have been considered Mary by Saint Juan Diego Cuauhtlatoatzin on 9 December 1531. Juan Diego was a converted Aztec. Maria would have told him in the Nahuatl to build a church on the spot where she spoke to him (on Mount Tepeyacac, in the current district of Gustavo A. Madero). The bishop of Mexico did not believe Juan Diego, and told him that Mary should first show a miracle. Juan Diego then, in winter, found roses on the mountain Tepeyacac. He picked the roses and carried them in his cloak to the bishop’s palace. When he opened his cloak there, a picture of Mary could be seen.
