First Indian saint questioned

MONDAY, MARCH 11, 2002

The expected canonization of Juan Diego has drawn the complaints of a group of Catholic scholars who say the Aztec Indian man is not worthy of sainthood.

Juan Diego's 16th century miracles, a critical part of becoming a saint, are being questioned by the scholars. They dispute a text written in Nahuatl, an Aztec language, describing Diego's actions and some say the man never existed.
