This is both surprising and inspiring. I was unaware that Cardinal Rivera has been doing this for the past 18 years. I hope spiritual good comes from the new program.
Cardinal Norberto Rivera Carrera of Mexico City will inaugurate a series of Masses on Dec.18 that will be celebrated during the Christmas season in various prisons in the Mexican capital.
The Apostolic Nuncio to Mexico, Archbishop Christophe Pierre, will help celebrate some of the Masses, along with six auxiliary bishops of Mexico City.
In addition, Archbishop Pierre will celebrate Mass at the Femenil Tepepan Prison on Dec. 20 and will launch a new outreach to juvenile delinquents to encourage them to share the hope and joy of the faith among their fellow inmates.
