Pope Francis is set to embark on a six-day trip to Mexico, which will take place from February 12-17. During the historic visit the Catholic leader will have a special mass at Ciudad Juárez where he will express his solidarity with immigrants attempting to cross over the border into the U.S., according to the Wall Street Journal."This is one community despite the fence," said Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi to reporters, via the Journal. "I think it will be moving to see this single community even though it is located on two sides of the border." The Vatican expects a crowd of at least 200,000 on the Mexican side and of 50,000 on the U.S. side. Scroll down to see how the faithful community is getting ready for the different events around the country.
