APTOPIX Argentina Blue Virgin Photo Gallery
In this Dec. 8, 2013 photo, Padre Toto de Vedia blesses residents with holy water using an olive branch during a procession celebrating Paraguay’s patroness, “Our Lady of Caacupe,” commonly called the “Blue Virgin” in a slum of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Padre Toto, one of many “slum priests” Pope Francis has long supported, led thousands in this year’s grueling but joyful 10-hour procession that winds through every corner of their slum.
