The following is the Vatican-provided text of the Holy Father’s address at the Marian Celebration – Virgen De La Puerta in Plaza de Armas, January 20, 2018, in Trujillo.
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I thank Monsignor Héctor Miguel for his words of welcome in the name of the whole pilgrim people of God in these lands.
In this beautiful and historical square of Trujillo, that awakened dreams of freedom for all Peruvians, we are gathered today to meet our “Dear Mother of Otuzco”. I know that many of you have traveled a great distance to be present today, gathered beneath our Mother’s gaze.
