Juan Diego and his family encounter a missionary who introduces them to Christian teachings. The episode is rich in themes of faith, family bonds, and generosity. The missionary's introduction of Christian beliefs offers a new perspective on God as a loving Father rather than a demanding deity.

Some elements of intensity include tension with Spanish soldiers, creating a sense of danger. There is verbal reference to ritual sacrifice that was occurring on the pagan temple, though there is no depiction of it. Characters speak about how the Spanish priests have washed blood from the temple steps. These are shown to be positive, as the Christian religion evangelizes the culture.
