It’s wonderful to see Pope Francis in Brazil, and even more exciting to see the reaction of the nation’s young population. Brazil contains the world’s largest Roman Catholic population, and a South American Pope could hardly have been more timely. World Youth Day started under soon to be Saint John Paul while he was Pontiff. The fact that over a million young people will be traveling to Brazil for this celebration should tell us all that hope and faith is alive in the next generation, and give us comfort. Let’s pray for a blessed and faith filled event.
