Yesterday was the funeral of the Second Bishop of the Archdiocese, Monseñor Luis Manresa Formosa of 95 years-old. One of our contributors, Enrique Hernandez Avila and I went to the cathedral to cover this event. As always, I was impressed and fascinated with the beauty of the ceremony. First time in my life, I actually saw a complete christian funeral. It’s quite different from muslim funerals. Very different… So here is some coverage of it.
The funeral was very crowded. Hundreds of people filled the cathedral.
Nephew of the Bishop, who came from Spain, Gerardo Manresa was present at the funeral. The church presented him a framed photo of his uncle. He was also the center of attention for the local media. For more information, you can check Nuestro Diario, Prensa Libre and Quetzalteco. They had their reporters, covering this significant funeral.
