Worshippers applauded, cried and prayed Thursday morning as a vial of the ex-pontiff's blood and a wax figure of the pope donning a papal robe arrived at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe. The tour will hit more than 100 locations.
The relics will be on display at the basilica until Sunday. They arrived last week but remained behind closed doors until now.
The tour will end in December.
