Cardinal Norberto Rivera, Archbishop of Mexico City, was honored for his 50 years as a priest at a Mass at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Des Plaines on Aug. 21. This is the first time that the cardinal visited the shrine. The shrine is the only place in the United States where pilgrims can receive the same special indulgence that is offered to pilgrims visiting the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City.
