El Pasoans Take Pictures with the Pope Cut-Out After Borderland Papal Mass
KISS-FM was out at the Sun Bowl with the Pope cut-out that was on lend thanks to the Catholic Diocese of El Paso after the Papal mass. See the photos of the faithful who ventured out to be part of history.
Pope Francis’ visit to the borderland was a historic moment for both El Paso and Juarez. The Pope arrived around 10 a.m. and was greeted by the Mayor of Juarez and children singing and waving to welcome him.
The Pope then went to Ceresso State Prison where he spent a little over an hour to meet with prisoners and their families and spoke about renewed hope and mercy and then headed off to the Seminary for rest and lunch and to prepare for the mass at 4:30 p.m.
By 4:30 p.m. thousands of people had gathered at El Punto and the Benito Juarez Stadium in Juarez with El Pasoans gathering at the Sun Bowl where the Papal mass was to be broadcast. The Pope did acknowledge all El Pasoans, including those gathered at the Sun Bowl and blessed both border cities.
