Cardinal Rivera says he has no official information on Papal visit to Mexico

.- In an attempt to quell rumors which have been circulating through Mexico over the past few days, the Archbishop of Mexico City, Cardinal Norberto Rivera, stated this week that he has no news from the Holy See regarding a possible visit of Pope Benedict XVI to the country.

In an interview highlighting the 475th anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Cardinal Rivera explained that, "Up to now there has been no notification; your servant and many Mexicans desire His Holiness to visit Mexico.  He desires to visit as well, but up to now I do not have any news."

Speaking at the Basilica of Guadalupe, the Archbishop acknowledged that many bishops as well as the Mexican Government have invited the Pope to visit, but up to now there has not been any confirmation from the Holy See.  

Nevertheless, another opportunity has opened for Benedict XVI to travel to Mexico in 2009, added the Cardinal, as the World Meeting of Families will be held in Mexico.
