Mexico said farewell to Pope Francis Wednesday from the border city of Juárez.
The procession toward the old fairgrounds where the pope would celebrate an afternoon mass began early in the morning. Some came with the aid of walkers and wheelchairs. Others stopped to buy fried pork skin at a corner restaurant that Javier Briones has owned for 30 years.
"I’m proud that I survived to see this day," Briones said.
