Hay tres iglesias que pertenecen al nombre de Basilica. Ellos son La Basilica Moderna, La Basilica Vieja y El Cerrito. El Cerrito es una iglesia sin asientos y tiene murales in los paredes. El Cerrito fue construio cuando La Virgin de dijo a Juan Diego que ella quiere una iglesia alli, en la cima.

La Basilica Vieja esta hundiendose y por eso esta inclanda. La Basilica Moderna todavia tiene misas cada domingo. Una papa visito este sitio en junio 18, 1987. El papa se llama SS Juan Paolo. Para la semana santa personas andan arrodilladas hacia La Basilica

La Basilica Moderna

La Basilica Moderna

Moderna. Ellos tienen esto porque quieren agradecer a La Virgin o pedir un favor. Tambien, a veces personas llevan un cruz en sus hombros. Nosotros fuimos a un museo tambien y habia mucho arte. La arte fue muy religiosa y el museo es sobre La Basilica religiosa y el museo es sobre La Basilica Vieja. En el arte habia mucha de La Virgin y tambien Juan Diego. Este museo fue muy interesante y educativo. Me gusta este museo mucho porque el arte fue bonito. Este dia fue muy divertido.

This is the old Basilica - the one that is sinking!

In Mexico City, there are Basilica churches. The Modern Basilica, The Old Basilica and The Cerrito. The Cerrito was a church on top of the Basilica. The Cerrito was constructed because the Virgin of Guadalupe told Juan Diego to build a church there. The Old Basilica was sinking and so it was inclined. The Modern Basilica has mass every Sunday. It is used as a general church just like in the United States. In the Modern Basilica, people walk on their knees to the alter to ask a request or to thank the Virgin of Guadalupe. To enter the church you must have your knees and shoulders covered. In the museum, there was a lot of art. A lot of the art revolved around the Virgin and Juan Diego. This museum was very interesting and educational. There was lots of interesting things to see and learn about. This day was a fun day.
