Apostolic Visit to Mexico & WYD Krakow Update - Perspectives Daily February 11, 2016

February 11, 2016
Friday marks the beginning of Pope Francis' 4th journey to the Americas during his Apostolic Visit to Mexico. Over the next 7 days, the Pope will visit places in Mexico where the people are in need of hearing of God’s mercy. During this time, the Pope will remain housed in Mexico City but each day he will travel to  different cities and towns throughout Mexico and conclude his visit with a Mass on the border of Cuidad Juarez and the United States.
We will, of course, be bringing you extensive television coverage starting tomorrow afternoon at 4:00 pm EST when Pope Francis begins his trip with a stop in Havana Cuba for a historic meeting with Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill. This will be the first time a pope has met with a Russian Orthodox patriarch.
Poland is gearing up in preparation for the upcoming World Youth Day in Krakow, which is only five months away.
Can you imagine what it must have been like to be present at the tomb of Christ on third day, right after his resurrection? Now try to imagine the reaction of a Roman non-believer in the midst of investigating the disappearance of Christ's body.
Check out this exclusive preview of the upcoming movie Risen.
Risen starring Joseph Fiennes hits theaters on February 19th so check out your local cinemas for show times. Also, be sure to catch our broadcast of Guadalupe: The Miracle and the Message, this Saturday, February 13, 2016 at 8:00 pm ET.
