Sample Day-by-Day Itinerary:


Day 1: Thursday – February 11 - USA – Mexico City
Depart USA for your flight to Mexico City. Upon arrival, you will meet your guide for your Five-Day Pilgrimage. Transfer to your Hotel for dinner and overnight.

Day 2: Friday – February 12 - Guadalupe
After breakfast, we travel by way of the Plaza of the Three Cultures, as we make our way to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Along the way, you will be enchanted by the artful blending of pre-Hispanic and Hispanic cultures. We arrive at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the patroness of the Americas. After celebrating Mass, we will have time to take in the brilliantly colored, modern Basilica dedicated in 1976. Join your prayers with those of other pilgrims, as you kneel before the altar displaying the astounding “Tilma”, the sackcloth bearing the image of the Holy Virgin. Continue on to San Juan Teotihuacan, a UNESCO World Heritage site, before we enjoy lunch nearby. This afternoon, we will enjoy a guided tour of the Archaeological zone, visiting the Pyramids of the Sun and the Moon, Temple of Quetzalcoatl, and local arts and crafts markets. Return to your Hotel in time for dinner and overnight.

Day 3: Saturday – February 13 - Mexico City
Mass at the Holy Family Church, then visit and pray at the tomb of Fr. Miguel Agustin Pro, S.J. the Jesuit martyr. Then visit the Metropolitan Cathedral and tour of the Cathedral and see the Tomb of Bishop Zumarraga. Drive to Historical Mexico City to visit the Zocalo, where we will see the National Palace. Continue on to the Plaza of Santo Domingo, the first church built by the Dominicans in 1576. Housed within the Plaza is the first rosary shrine in Mexico, Our Lady of the Rosary; and a second shrine, Our Lady of Covadonga (headquarters of the Confraternity of the Most Holy Rosary, founded in 1538). Dinner and overnight.

Day 4: Sunday – February 14 - Excursion to Tlaxcala & Puebla
Following breakfast, we will leave Mexico City for a spectacular ride with a view of the two most famous peaks, one covered with eternal snow, and next to it is the one with volcano. Our first stop is Tlaxcala, the Shrine of San Miguel Del Milagro. Upon arrival, our priest will celebrate Holy Mass at the site where St. Michael the Archangel appeared to Diego Lazaro in 1631. It was there that St. Michael directed him to the Grotto and to a well of miraculous curative waters (bring an empty small bottle to collect some miraculous water). After lunch we proceed to Puebla to see St. Dominic's Church and the magnificent Chapel of Our Lady of the Rosary, with it's most famous scalloped gold leaf walls and ceilings. Then visit the Church of St. Francis of Assisi to see the incorrupt body of St. Sebastian de Aparicio. This evening we will return to our hotel very late (approximately 9PM).

After breakfast, we will return to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe to attend Mass and to bid farewell to Mary the Mother of God. Enjoy free time for prayer and reflection at the shrine.

About Mexico:
The Shrine at Guadalupe is considered the holiest place in the Western Hemisphere. President John F. Kennedy and French President Charles de Gaulle testified to this during state visits to Mexico. St. John Paul II preached to millions of the faithful from this holy Shrine during his 1979 visit to Mexico. The Basilica commemorates the Virgin Mary's appearance to a humble Indian and honors her request that a Shrine be built in Her honor. In December of 1531, Juan Diego informed a skeptical bishop of his encounter with Mary. A few days later, Juan returned to the site of the vision and once again Our Mother appeared. The humble man relayed the bishop's request for proof of Her visitation, whereupon the Virgin instructed Juan to gather roses from the frozen, rocky terrain and present them to the bishop. Remarkably for the cool season, he found a great number of roses strewn all around. Gathering the roses in sackcloth, he hurriedly took them to the bishop. When he opened the cloak to present the roses to the cleric, it was not Only * the blooms that amazed the bishop. Stamped on the humble cloth was an image of the Virgin! The same miraculous image exists for you to see, hanging in splendor above the main altar.
