I currently find myself in the city of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico; more specifically, in the Hermosa Provincia (Beautiful Province) colony of this city. This colony is the international headquarters of The Light of the World Church (more commonly know as La Luz Del Mundo in Spanish). The church is currently celebrating the Holy Convocation, its most important festivity, which takes place annually from the 7 to the 15 of August.
The objective of the Holy Convocation is the Celebration of the Holy Supper. Ceremony considered sacred by its members which occurs on August 14 as the climax of this convocation. The Holy Supper represents the maximum expression of faith for all of us who participate in it.
During my visit to Guadalajara this year; I was amazed to see the thousands of members of the church gathered to celebrate this festivity. Around 300,000 members of the church attend the Holy Convocation which are dispersed in the various venues the church prepares for the event. People of all ages from more than 40 nations represented in delegations come to this city of Guadalajara to attend this convocation.
I got the chance to be reunited with my friends from England, Spain, and Chile; aside from my friends from the US who accompanied me in my journey.
I would like to share what I saw and continue to see. The multitude of people from different nations, with different cultures and languages united as one to celebrate the Holy Supper.
