He’s going to México!
El Papa va a México!!
Gracias a Dios!
Nuestro país necesita de su Bendición y sobre todo, hay gran necesidad de Salvación!
Once upon a time, México could be counted as a very Catholic country…as of late, times have sadly changed. Abortion. Lack of reverence for the Domestic Church. The view that Marriage is temporary. And many other heart-breaking beliefs and changes.
I Pray that our Holy Father’s visit will assist this Beautiful Nation to return to His Ways.
And the symbolic crossing into the US…VERY COOL!!!
The Mexican bishops’ conference and the Vatican have confirmed Pope Francis will visit Mexico in 2016, marking his first trip to this heavily Catholic country in throes of unrest over unresolved issues such as violence, crime and corruption.
Auxiliary Bishop Eugenio Lira Rugarcia of Puebla, conference secretary-general, told Catholic News Service that the pope would travel to Mexico next year, though dates and details were still to be determined. Jesuit Father Federico Lombardi, Vatican spokesman, provided similar information to the Televisa network, adding the trip would likely take place during the first half of 2016 and include a stop in the capital, Mexico City.
Pope Francis has previously mused about visiting Mexico, home to the world’s second-largest Catholic population. After visiting the Philippines last year, the pope said he wanted to walk from Mexico into the United States “as a sign of brotherhood and of help to the immigrants,” along with visiting the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the world’s most-visited Marian shrine.
He said in September that he had planned to enter the United States at a border crossing, going from Ciudad Juarez to El Paso, Texas, but opted to instead visit Cuba after the communist country and the United States ended their estrangement, with Vatican assistance.
