Mexico: nearly 2 million venerate Virgin of Zapopan

October 19, 2010

Nearly two million people-- thousands of whom made the journey barefoot-- venerated the image of Our Lady of Zapopan during an annual procession in her honor on October 12.

At the outdoor Mass that followed, Cardinal Juan Sandoval Iñiguez warned the faithful against attempts to legalize same-sex marriage. “The Church has repeated it throughout her 2,000-year history, that marriage should be between a man and a woman,” he preached. “May the faithful keep this clear so that the voices heard in society (e.g., homosexual ‘marriage,’ etc.) may not penetrate our hearts.”
