The first bishop of Mexico, and friend of St. Juan Diego. He was the first one to witness the miracle of the tilma, and the one Our Lady spoke of.
He is also the one credited with hot chocolate becoming a popular drink among Europeans. A convent of nuns in Oaxaca, after encountering a recipe of cocoa
mixed with sugar, prepared it for the bishop (before this, ground
cocoa had not found a role in European diets).
