Dear friends, thank you so much for this enthusiasm. I feel so joyful for being with you. I have made been on many journeys, but I have never been welcomed with this much enthusiasm. I will take with me, in my heart, my impression of these days. Mexico will always remain in my heart. I can say for years I have prayed daily for Mexico, but, in the future, I will pray even more. I can now uunderstand why Pope John Paul II said, "I feel I am a Mexican Pope!"
