Aan de basiliek van Guadalupe in Mexico-Stad zijn duizenden pelgrims aangekomen voor de jaarlijkse viering van Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe. Die dag wordt herdacht dat de Heilige Maagd op deze plaats verscheen voor de heilige Juan Diego Cuauhtlatoatzin, een Azteek, en hem aansprak in zijn eigen taal Nahuatl. Veel pelgrims hebben foto's of beelden van de Mexicaanse patroonheilige meegebracht om die te laten zegenen, kinderen zijn verkleed als de inheemse landbouwer Juan Diego.
