30,000 INDIAN PILGRIMS GO TO GUADALUPE
Commemorating First Anniversary of Papal Visit to Mexico

    MEXICO CITY, JAN 30 (ZENIT).- Yesterday, one year after John Paul II's 4th Mexican visit, 30,000 pilgrims, the majority Indians from all over Mexico, went to the Basilica of Guadalupe to pray for peace and prosperity in the country, especially for its ethnic groups.

    The climax of the pilgrimage was the celebration of Mass, presided by Cardinal Norberto Rivera Carrera, Archbishop Primate of Mexico.

    The theme of the pilgrimage was "Sowers of Faith, Peace, and Progress." It was promoted by the Episcopal Commission for Evangelization and Catechesis and the Episcopal Commission for Indians, as well as two organizations: "Full Time Evangelizers," and "Guadalupe Eagles."

    Among the thousands of participants were representatives from virtually all the Indian ethnic groups.

    With this pilgrimage, the Catholic organizations that convoked the event hoped to contribute to the Mission 2000 plan launched by the Archdiocese of Mexico, which will begin to see its first fruits during the Holy Week 2000 evangelization missions. ZE00013003
