Monterrey's Mayor gives the Keys to the city to Jesus

Last week, the Mayor of the city of Monterrey symbolically gave the keys to the city of Monterrey to Jesus.  For a link to an article in english - click here.

The Mayor, Margarita Arellanes Cervantes was quoted in the ceremony saying, "In the last few months, and I say this with humility, we have been witness to increasingly obvious change for the better in our city, and this has happened because we have opened our doors to God. While we acknowledge that human participation is key, it is clear that only the light of faith in God can drive away the darkness.

"This is why we are gathered here today, and I, Margarita Alicia Arellanes Cervantes, hand over the city of Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, to our Lord Jesus Christ, so that his kingdom of peace and benediction may be built.  I open the doors of this municipality to God as the highest authority.  I recognize that without his presence and help we cannot truly succeed."

She continued and said, "If the Lord does not watch over the city, the work of its guardianas is useless, which is why, with profound respect and reverence, I humbly ask God, with the community as my witness, to come into this city and make it his home and to live in the hearts of each of its inhabitants.  Lord Jesus Christ, welcome to Monterrey, the house that you have built for us, this is our house, Lord Jesus, Lord of Monterrey, thank you."

Talk about INCREDIBLE!! Don't you wish the mayor of your city would do that?!?

If you want to see the youtube video - it's all in spanish but here it is.
