Among the reporters there was one who polished the shoes of the Pope. Noel Diaz, founder of the television network ESNE, made for migrants was the one who took advantage of the situation. As a boy he used to help his mother for a living by making the shoes of others to shine. He had brought an outfit for his First Communion with the money raised from shining the shoes.

“I’ll give him shoeshine box as a gift, as a symbol of how I used to make money to buy clothes for my first communion as a child. This symbolizing the hard work of all the hired workers, who struggle daily to bring bread to their tables the honest way,” said Noel Diaz.
