Guadalupe, Mexico City & much more – November 2016
28 November 2016 to 07 December 2016
One of the three great Marian apparitions, Guadalupe is OURS, centering on the Western hemisphere. We will spend a whole day in Guadalupe with a guided tour and Mass in the morning with the afternoon free to pray and explore.
This is a 10-day exciting, jam-packed pilgrimage and tour of Mexico. Not just a few days at Guadalupe! Explore and immerse yourself in the amazing faith of the Mexican people.
It would be a shame to come all the way down to Mexico City and not see everything else this amazing country has to offer Catholic pilgrims. We will spend time seeing the sites in the city with Mass at the cathedral, seeing the old Aztec Temples and discussing their religion of human sacrifice, relating it our own culture today.
We will also travel into the countryside to visit the ancient pyramids, renew baptismal vows in the oldest baptismal font in the Americas that goes back to Cortez. Visiting San Miguel and the beautiful countryside and the historical churches.
We will discuss at length the suffering and trials of the Mexican Catholics and the impact of the Cristeros. Boats on teh canals, arguing with the atheistic murals of Diego Rivera, walking through exotic markets, taking cooking lessons and eating the finest food Mexico has to offer.
This is a safe trip. The areas we tour are wonderful, free of danger and clean and friendly.

1st Baptismal Font and Pulpit in Americas, Eating Ant Eggs in a Cave And Climbing Pyramids
An amazing day in Mexico. We renewed our baptisms in the first baptismal font ever in the Americas. We also saw the first pulpit where the gospel was first preached in the Western Hemisphere.
We ate in the belly of a cave and part of our dinner was ant eggs and larva. Then we climbed the Pyramids of the Sun and of the Moon which were built 2000 years ago. Then we arrived in Mexico City.
I would highly recommend you listen to the homily of Deacon Dave as he speaks about our heritage is Catholics in the meaning of baptism in this video also includes the renewal of our baptismal vows from the first baptismal font ever in the Western Hemisphere.
Aztecs, Human Sacrifice, Abortion and the Catholic Faith
Today we visited the Aztec Temple in Mexico City. The cathedral of Mexico City was built right next to the 500 year temple.
I did a lot of study on the Aztecs and their massive human sacrifices and cannibalism. I realized there was a great tie-in with the Catholic faith, the sacrifice of Christ and abortion.
I did not get enough time to finish the video of today’s adventures but I will have it up by tomorrow. Stay tuned.
Aztec Sacrifices, Indian Dances, Cathedral Bells, Debating Diego Rivera and more
<img class=”alignright size-medium wp-image-1593509″ src=”https://www.catholicconvert.com/wp-content/uploads/IMG_4332-300×225.jpg” alt=”IMG_4332″ width=”300″ height=”225″ />Today we visited the Aztec Temple in the heart of Mexico City next door to the Catholic Cathedral. Tens of thousands of humans were brutally sacrificed and even eaten. I gave a talk (see earlier video) contrasting the sacrifice of Christ and that of the Aztecs – and abortion.
Mass at the exquisite and meaningful Church Our Lady of the Pillar. Homily here.
Also “debated” Diego Rivera (Spanish muralist) in the Palace of Fine Arts” based on his mural “Man, Controller of the Universe. Lots more too. Enjoy!
