The other day we started seeing everyone walking, biking, running, and riding to the basilica in Mexico City. Some people walking HUNDREDS of miles carrying GIANT images of Mary.... we even got to ride with statues on the combi yesterday!
December 12th is the day that Mary appeared to Juan Diego, its the famous image of mary that we see all around.
I also want people to understand that there is a difference between US Catholicism (I know several amazing men and woman of God who are also catholic!) and Mexican Catholicism. It is almost-- you need to see it to believe it type of thing.
Sometimes, it hits me (at random times) just the need for Christ in this country.,... and the last few days has been one of those times.
My favorite line in Rod's last blog (And i 100% agree...) was:
It's sad. Mexico is not reached. Don't believe that. Please.
