Church officials bless Popemobiles to be used in Mexico trip

MEXICO CITY –  Pope Francis is scheduled to visit Mexico this Friday and 11 vehicles will be used for his visit.

On Thursday, the vehicles were blessed by church officials.

Five different Popemobiles will be used solely to transport Pope Francis.

The pontiff requested that none of the cars be armored.

Of the five cars used for the Pope, two Jeeps were brought over from the United States where they were used by the Holy Father during his visit last year.

Other vehicles for the pope like the Ram pickups were made in Mexico, specifically for his visit.
