Day 1 - USA/MEXICO CITY - Today, we depart our local Airport to connect with our flight to Mexico City. Upon arrival, we are greeted by our Tour Manager and enjoy a brief orientation tour of Mexico City. Depending on airline schedules, we have the opportunity for our first pilgrim’s Mass in Mexico at the shrine of Blessed Miguel Pro in the Church of the Holy Family, here in Mexico City! Blessed Miguel was a Jesuit priest, executed for exercising his priestly duties during the persecution of the Catholic Church under President Elias Calles in the 1920s. Beatified by Pope Saint John Paul II in 1988, Fr. Miguel was an inspirational figure as Mexico rebuilt its Catholic institutions following President Calles reign. Afterwards, we transfer to our hotel for our “welcome” dinner and overnight.

Following a break for lunch on our own, we spend the afternoon visiting the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe, “Patroness of the Americas”.

an image on a centuries old cloth, science cannot explain”
