.- Church officials in Brazil have informed CNA that Pope Benedict XVI is determining the final details of his travel to the South American country to attend next year’s 5th General Conference of the Latin American Bishops’ Council, and they said the visit may include a massive gathering with young people in the city of Sao Paulo.

Although the Holy See has not yet confirmed the reports, according to local sources the Pontiff may begin his visit to Brazil with a massive gathering on May 10 with young people at the Campo de Marte airport in northern Sao Paulo.

On May 11 the Pope may meet with the members of the National Conference of Bishops of Brazil.

The Pope would then travel to the Marian Shrine of Our Lady of Aparecida, some 170 kilometers north of Sao Paulo, where he will open the 5th General Conference of the Latin American Bishops’ Council, which will bring together cardinals, archbishops, and bishops from across the Americas.
