Gigantic Statue of “Pope” Francis comes to Ciudad Juarez, Mexico
One year ago today, “Pope” Francis visited the city of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, which is situated directly at the border with the United States, right across from the American city of El Paso, Texas. Ciudad Juarez is an embattled city and plays a central role in the ongoing Mexican drug war. In 2010, the Juarez murder rate exceeded 3,500 people.
As part of his trip to Mexico in February 2016, the “Pope” visited Juarez, meeting there with prisoners, performing a Novus Ordo worship service, and holding a farewell ceremony at the international airport. Details with links to videos and transcripts of speeches can be found on our page covering Francis’ entire Mexico trip in 2016:
Today, the city of Juarez is unveiling a big statue of Francis to commermorate the historic occasion of his visit a year ago. The sculptor is Pedro Francisco Rodriguez. The base of the statue was built by Perches Funeral Home and is a cube that curiously measures 6″ x 6″ x 6″, according to owner Salvador Perches. The statue will be solemnly unveiled tonight at 6:30 pm MT after a Novus Ordo “Mass” celebrated by Mr. Jose Torres Campos, the Novus Ordo bishop of the diocese of Juarez.
The following brief video clip shows the statue being moved to its destination for the official unveiling today:
Here are some links to videos, photos, and more information on this Mexican tribute to the world’s most infamous apostate:

The setting up of this statue in Juarez is simply the latest installment in the insufferable “Francis Show” we have been witnessing since March 13, 2013. Unfortunately, we can expect that, like all other shows, this one too must go on.
