Prayer to St. Juan Diego

O St. Juan Diego, in appearances of Our Lady of Guadalupe,
you, a humble peasant, were chosen as Her messenger.
Your faithfulness in this task is evident still today,
in the miraculous image the Virgin left upon your tilma.
Intercede for me, I pray, that I might have your childlike trust
in the Mother of God, and that my heart might respond
to her maternal promptings.
Through such simple confidence, obedience, and love,
may I join you one day in sharing everlasting joy,
where our heavenly Mother reigns in the glory of Her Son.
