Pilgrims travel from Quito to Rome to see Pope Francis

These Ecuadorians have been visiting different parts of Europe. One of their adventures has been to come to Rome and see Pope Francis.

“We have wanted to do this journey for many years. We want to give thanks to God for this opportunity in meeting the pope on such a beautiful day.”

“The pope's presence, his words, blessings and this experience is the first time for us. It is an unforgettable moment both personally and spiritually.”

These pilgrims didn't know each other before the trip. However, after several days being together, they all feel as if they have known each other their whole lives. The Vatican has left its mark on their hearts.

“As Latin Americans our faith is strong. We received a lot in listening to the pope during the audience.”

These pilgrims will now continue their journey after having shared part of it with the pope in the Eternal City.
