Addis Ababa's 'Mercato' - Italian for 'market' - is reputedly the biggest open-air market in Africa, lying in the west of the capital. Supermarkets have sprouted across the city as the metropolis has expanded with Ethiopia's booming economy, but Mercato remains a popular destination for shoppers seeking clothing, electronics and a huge range of other items. It has been around for as long as the city, which was founded at the end of the 19th century, but it took its current form, and its name, from the Italians who invaded Ethiopia in 1935.

Every 9th of November the people from Madrid remember their patron saint with a mass and a procession of the effigy of the virgin. Legend has it that the image of the Virgin of La Almudena was brought to Spain by St. James and hidden away in a niche in the city's wall during the city's siege by Moorish troops in the eighth century. Two centuries later the image revealed itself when the wall where it was hidden crumbled away. According to tradition, the candles on either side of the virgin were said to still be burning.

People dressed in traditional Madrid attire as "chulapos" and "chulapas" take part in an open-air mass to celebrate Madrid's patron saint La Almudena Virgin in Madrid, Spain, November 9, 2015. Every 9th of November the people from Madrid remember their patron saint with a mass and a procession of the effigy of the virgin. Legend has it that the image of the Virgin of La Almudena was brought to Spain by St. James and hidden away in a niche in the city's wall during the cityÕs siege by Moorish troops in the eighth century. Two centuries later the image revealed itself when the wall where it was hidden crumbled away. According to tradition, the candles on either side of the virgin were said to still be burning.

A view of the Mision de Santiago church in Jalpan, in Queretaro state, September 9, 2015. Father Junipero Serra was the founder of the Franciscan Missions in the Sierra Gorda of Queretaro. Pope Francis will declare him a saint at a Mass celebrated at the National Shrine in Washington on September 23 during the pontiff’s first visit to the United States. The Franciscan friar from Spain built a series of missions along the Pacific coast in the 18th century, in what is now California, to spread the faith among Native Americans. His advocates say he supported the Indians, introducing cattle and crops to their land. The Vatican has defended Serra against accusations that, as part of the Spanish colonial system, he suppressed Native Americans. Serra’s resting place is inside the Basilica at the Carmel Mission south of San Francisco.
