A Vigil for Peace at the U.S. Embassy

As we arrived in front of the U.S. Embassy in Tegucigalpa, a few hundred Hondurans were already there candles and signs ready. We walked from the Loyola Center and Radio Progreso offices where many of us would be sleeping the night on the floor. Cardinal Rodriguez had prohibited churches and Catholic institutions from participating from the vigil for peace in front of the embassy that night. He further gave orders prohibiting Catholic retreat centers from receiving delegation members as guests.
