Juan Luis Tron (second from left) and Maria Magdalene Baca (second from right) together with other young people from the Regnum Christi movement wait outside St. Peter’s Basilica on Jan. 2, 2023, to pay their respects to the late Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, who died Dec. 31, 2022.

Mexico, Spain, Germany, Philippines, and Italy are just some of the countries pilgrims have traveled from to see the Pope Emeritus.
