Pope Francis celebrated Mass on April 8th with Archbishop Jose H. Gomez, head of the largest archdiocese in the United States which also has the highest number and percentage of Hispanics in the country. The Mass was celebrated at St. Martha’s House in the Vatican, where Pope Francis is currently residing.

“It was a very special Eucharist for me because we were celebrating the Annunciation and I was ordained a Bishop in Denver on the Solemnity of the Annunciation in 2001,” Archbishop Gomez said on a Facebook post.

Archbishop Gomez was visiting the Vatican with the Catholic Association of Latino Leaders, a Los Angeles-based group that works to strengthen ties between the Hispanic community and the Church.
