Pope Francis will pay an official visit to Mexico next year, the Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi said.

According to Lombardi, Francisco want to visit the Basilica of Guadalupe so that “the possibility of the trip is concrete”.

He explained that if Jorge Mario Bergoglio Mexico will “naturally” is willing to go to honor the Virgin of Guadalupe sanctuary in Mexico City (capital).

Francisco recently visited the United States and Cuba and within the framework of this apostolic visit, the pontiff was scheduled to enter the United States from Ciudad Juarez, but ruled out this possibility on the grounds that Mexico “deserved more”.”Go to Mexico without visiting the Virgin of Guadalupe could not. Then came the announcement of December 17 after a process of almost a year. And I said: we go to the United States through Cuba, “said the Pope on the occasion of his recent trip.
