BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:02 A.M.) – Metropolitan Archbishop, Francisco Moreno Barron, led a Catholic Mass next to the border wall between the United States and Mexico in the border city of Tijuana on Sunday, before participating in a 30,000-strong march in solidarity with migrants worldwide.
The 30,000 march for ‘Life, Peace and Migrants’ has been organised by the Catholic Church in Tijuana for 17 consecutive years with the goal of uniting the society of Tijuana, however this year’s march has the added goal of solidarity and prayers for migrants worldwide.
Francisco Moreno Barron explained in Spanish that: “Every year we proclaim peace and life. Now this year, we add to these values, solidarity with migrants.”
“We begin with this simple gesture on the wall that makes us aware of so many brothers who need us through these lands of the Californians and Tijuana,” he continued.
