CWN Editor's Note: Pope Francis has issued a Spanish-language video message for the dedication of Sagrada Familia’s second-highest tower.

Located in Barcelona, the unfinished basilica is the masterpiece of the Servant of God Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926). Groundbreaking took place in 1882, and Pope Benedict XVI consecrated it during his apostolic journey to Spain in 2010 (homily).
