Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Jul 22, 2013 / 11:47 am
Journalists from across the world heard stories of faith and determination from young people attending World Youth Day 2013 in the hopes of working for a more just and peaceful society.
Archbishop Orani João Tempesta of Rio de Janeiro explained that Pope Francis arrives in Brazil today bearing the hope of "all those who want to build a better world."
The archbishop welcomed the nearly 6,000 journalists from more than 60 countries who are in Brazil to cover the Papal events.
At a July 22 event to open the international Media Center in Copacabana, Archbishop Tempesta described the Pope as a spiritual leader "who left Latin America and now returns as the 'first pilgrim' of World Youth Day."
