Francis in Mexico City

Going from bad to worse!

This from the Cadena Noticias website from Mexico (see here). The picture was supposedly taken during a “mass celebration” (no pun intended) of Francis, according to Gloria TV. (see here)

 

I have translated below.

And hat tip to Mundabor who has the color commentary here.

Disappointing turnout of people at the Zocalo

The first day of the visit of Pope Francisco in Mexico has not had the expected influx in the Zocalo (Ed note: common name of the main square in central Mexico City), which is part of some of their events on Saturday.

Although the Zocalo can accommodate about 200 thousand people, only 20,000 tickets for the faithful who had interest to see the pope Francisco were distributed.

Therefore, one can observe a Constitution Square half full, without the influx that might have been expected for the visit of the Pope.

Update 17 February 2016 08:00

Francis loses his composure.

I guess no body pass is in the works. 😦
