Pope Benedict XVI is expected in Mexico on Friday at the start of his third visit to the Americas.
The six-day trip will also see the leader of the Roman Catholic Church visit Cuba.
Ahead of his arrival, BBC News spoke to people outside the Basilica de Guadalupe in Mexico City about what message they hoped the Pope's visit would bring.
