Pope Francis: Journey to Paso del Norte – A visual preview

In a little less than 72 hours, Pope Francis will make history with a visit to Juarez and the Border. Ahead of his visit, the City of Juarez has done more than put out the welcome mat.

With streets cleaned, entire blocks of the city repainted and a new altar completed in record time, residents have gone all out to make our Sister City shine.  Ahead of the Papal Visit, Reporter Alexandra Hinojosa and Photojournalist Andres Acosta went to Juarez to check out the preparations and talk with residents.

On the day of Pope Francis’ visit, you can follow along by following our crew on Twitter: Alex (@AlxHinojosa), Andres (@ag4Images) both with up-to-the-minute reporting from Juarez and  Lolie Aguirre with her reporting direct from the Sun Bowl.  And we’ll have the overview of the entire region on our facebook page and twitter feed (@epheraldpost)

For now, enjoy the photos of all the various types of greetings Juarez has in place for Pope Francis.
