WYD 2019: Enjoying the Sights of Mexico City!


The day started with a delicious and large breakfast buffet where we were joined by Bus 2. It was a great way to start our day with some amazing conversation and getting to know the other pilgrims.

On the very first day of our pilgrimage in Mexico, we started with a beautiful mass celebrated by both Father Josh from Bus 1 and Father Daniel from Bus 2 in the Church of the Holy Family. The mass was one of our first moments of a direct connection to God and we were called to find a distraction in Christ Himself, and His distractions would be filled with love, glory and grace, aiding us in fulfilling our mission to confidently say yes to the Lord.

We were then taken on a tour throughout Mexico City with our tour guide Silvia where we saw the Main Square. This area is one of the most heavily populated areas in Mexico City. The government palace was our first destination in the square and even as we lined up, we were all smiling and dancing with each other, taking pictures to capture these precious moments.

The palace itself was filled with artworks of Diego Rivera who painted all of Mexico’s history in 3 walls which took 5 years. It had a rich history and culture that made us all so grateful for this new journey whilst interacting with the locals.
