Pope Benedict Mexico
March 22, 2012 by staff
Pope Benedict Mexico, Pope Benedict XVI will make his first visit to Mexico on Friday, causing many to question whether he can capture the hearts of the people as well as his predecessor Pope John Paul did.
Pope Benedict XVI will visit Mexico and Peru to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the discovery of a statue of the Virgin of Charity.
The statue represents a symbol of nationality for many, even outside the church, bringing it to hold a special place in many of the local’s hearts.
Pope John Paul, who passed away in 2005, also held a similar spot of affection and honor.
When John Paul II first visited Mexico in 1979, he knelt to the ground to kiss the Mexican soil. The striking first impression led John Paul II to an esteemed position that some don’t believe Pope Benedict XVI will be able to fill. Benedict is viewed as being a far shier than his predecessor, who made his first visit to Mexico only months after his election in 1978.
