Brazil: World Youth Day


World Youth Day: Young pilgrims sing songs after receiving their "Pilgrim Kit" at the sambadrome, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Friday. Pope Francis will travel to Brazil and participate in World Youth Day events from July 22 to July 28. Thousands of young Roman Catholics from around the Americas are converging on Rio de Janeiro, taking days-long bus trips or expensive plane flights that were paid for by baking cookies and holding garage sales, running raffles and bingo tournaments and even begging for coins in public plazas.
