Last Sunday all together in México

At the close of this week, most of the seminarians from the summer immersion program will return to their home dioceses back in the United States. Five of us will remain for parish assignments in Mexico City to continue our practice of the language on these shores. With today being the last Sunday, there was no better way to be all together than to be at the Mother Church of Mexico City — Metropolitan Cathedral of the Assumption of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven. The Sunday liturgy was presided by the Cardinal Archbishop, Norberto Rivera Carrera, who appointed to the cathedra since 1995 by Saint John Paul II.

It was a beautiful liturgy attended by many. I was able to catch this shot while in the procession!

Main portrait at the restaurant where we enjoyed lunch

After Mass we enjoyed a delightful lunch down the street from the Cathedral at Café de TacubaIt was a charming restaurant that originates from a 17th century mansion.Café de Tacuba was established in 1912 and is a taste of Old Mexico City with tradition Mexico food. Here’s the twist!

The tablecloths contain wine and frosting stains as remnants of main celebrations throughout the year. There is a legend of a nun who is the ghost at the staircase who seems to shake and nudge at the table cloths to give the customers a bit of a scare. It is a fun little story that bring a little charm to the restaurant.

And here’s a little entertainment during lunch. Do enjoy!
