MEXICO CITY (KABC) -- During Pope Francis' visit to Mexico City, ABC7's David Ono encounters one of the oldest Catholic churches in Mexico that helps highlight how deeply ingrained the Catholic religion is in the country.

Built in 1485, the Santa Maria de la Natividad was already 300 years old when our founding fathers were just forming the United States.

Father Arturo Escavel Deleon and Sergio Silva said they were renovating the original bell tower and other parts of the building.

It began as a Franciscan convent, and centuries ago, it was a common stopping place for Spaniards to water and feed their horses.
