"Some children came and told me, 'Take me with you because you'll be near the pope'. I told them it was very difficult but what I could do was bring the pope a letter that they wrote. And that's how this whole initiative with the kids letters began.”

Rosa Maria's small invitation to a child turned into 500 letters with pictures, drawings and messages from Mexican children to the Pope.

"There were letters I read that said, 'I can't see you personally, I could not be on the fence because I'm sick, I couldn't be there but I saw you on TV and that made me very happy, and maybe one day I'll come to see you and I am praying for you.”

Rosa Maria Ordaz considers herself an ambassador for these children and a bridge between Mexico and the Vatican. These letters will soon be delivered to Benedict XVI and she hopes to bring a response back to the children.
