Mexico City: Cathedral, Aztecs and Human Sacrifice, Miguel Pro
by Steve Ray on December 3, 2018
Walking tour of Mexico City starting with the magnificent Mexico City Metropolitan Cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It is the oldest, largest and most important cathedral in Latin America. We had Mass here and Fr. James’ homily is here.
To demonstrate that Christianity conquers paganism, the cathedral was built atop the Great Aztec Temple where untold of thousands of humans were sacrificed. I gave my talk about this gruesome practice and compared it with abortion. I also made a point that the impulse for human sacrifice made it easy to lead the indigenous peoples to an understanding of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and the Eucharist.
After an hour at the vast Mercado Market we visited the Church of the Holy Family to venerate the relics of the Cristero’s priest and martyr Blessed Miguel Pro and to learn his story. Evening was free.
