Viva Cristo Rey: Christ the King Pilgrimage in Mexico

Source: FSSPX News

On October 29, 2017, 1,400 faithful participated in the Christ the King pilgrimage in Mexico, organized by the Priestly Society of St. Pius X.

 

The pilgrimage began in the historic center of the city of Santo Domingo: 1,400 faithful from the different States in Mexico and a group from the United States began walking in the morning, proclaiming with their songs and prayers Christ’s kingship over all nations.

The high point of the pilgrimage was the arrival at the sanctuary of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

In 1531, 486 years ago, Our Lady of Guadalupe came to this country to stay and protect her children. Nine million natives converted in less than ten years, which is more than the number of those who lost the Faith in the Protestant Revolution in Europe.

When the pilgrims arrived at the basilica, Fr. Jorge Amozurrutia, District Superior of Mexico, consecrated the District to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

After the act of consecration and a few words from the District Superior, the pilgrims continued on to the convent of the Friars Minor to assist at holy Mass, the infinite source of grace, during which they were able to hear a sermon preached by Fr. Rodrigo Fernàndez.
