Vice-President Biden Prays at Shrine to Blessed Mother

Mexican Prelates Welcome Biden Visit to Guadalupe

On March 5th, Vice President Joe Biden visited the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe – the most holy Catholic site in Mexico. Mexican Catholic leaders rejoiced and welcomed the USA's first and only Catholic Vice President.

After praying at the shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe, the Vice President crossed the Basilica square to visit the Antigua Parrogquia de Los Indios (Old Church of the Indians). Calling the site a “great treasure,” Vice President Biden remarked that he would have come to Mexico City if only just for the Basilica .
