After Mass at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Pope Francis spent some time in prayer before the image of Our Lady. 

The Pontiff offered a bouquet of yellow flowers and sat praying silently for about 20 minutes before the image of the tilma of the Virgin of Guadalupe in the so-called "dressing room" of the Virgin of Guadalupe.

A few minutes before, the Pope blessed a crown for Our Lady of Guadalupe, which was placed to near the flowers.

Pope Francis is in Mexico Feb. 12-17. It is his first papal visit to the country.
