Pope Francis thanked President Enrique Peña Nieto and the civil authorities this week for the warm reception he received during his stay in Mexico.

“I would like to thank my brothers in the church, and everyone who contributed (to my Mexico visit),” he said.

In the last two weeks, the head of the Catholic Church has had an intense work agenda, without any formal rests. Following his trip to Mexico, he conducted the first sermon of lent and then held a public audience at the St. Peter’s Square.

However, the first Latin American pope still found time to thank “God and the Virgin of Guadalupe for the gift of this pilgrimage. Moreover, I thank the president of Mexico and the civil authorities for their warm welcome.”
