My name is Jorge Arredondo Sevilla, I was born and raised in the border town of Tecate, Baja California, Mexico. I crossed the border to go to elementary, middle, and high school for a decade. I studied Philosophy at Lumen Gentium Catholic University in Mexico City where I also did research and formation on Our Lady of Guadalupe, a Marian advocation that gives hope to believers throughout the Americas. I did my Master of Theological Studies at Harvard University studying the Nahua relation to the apparition and evangelization in Mexico. I am currently a PhD candidate at Notre Dame and am a Kellogg Graduate Affiliate where I plan to study immigration (and pilgrimage) within a spiritual context.
