Monterrey Santuario
MEXICO, Karla Leal •  As an teenager, almost an adult, in the late 90’s, I used to climb up the sidewalk that existed at that time, and I carried a small bag with cement in one hand and with the other I held on to the ropes that were there to help us climb.

MEXICO, Gabriela de la Garza • In the midst of the pandemic, with all the fear, suffering and the need to be able to “run” to seek comfort and guidance in the arms of Mary, our Mother, we find that the access to the Shrine of Maria Camino al Cielo (Mary Way to Heaven), in Monterrey, is closed to free pedestrian and vehicular traffic, since almost a year ago.
