Eddie Vega Goes To See The Pope
Pope John Paul II came to the United States in 1993. Eddie Vega was a teenager living in McAllen and had never been out of Texas. His church group goes and takes him with. While there he tells this story of a march that may never end, a lost friend, and how he befriended a group of Spaniards.
This track was recorded at the December 6, 2016 Worth Repeating with the theme "Never Say Never." Worth Repeating is Texas Public Radio's live storytelling event series.
