Rio Will Be Pope's Only International Trip for 2013

Brazil will be the only international destination for Pope Francis in 2013. This was stated Wednesday afternoon by Father Federico Lombardi, director of the Vatican press office, in a meeting at the headquarters of the Foreign Press Association in Rome. "I invite you to not expect others to trips abroad this year," Father Lombardi said.

Pope Francis will travel to Rio de Janeiro for the 28th World Youth Day, to be held July 23 to 28, with the motto "Go and make disciples of all nations" (Mt 28, 19).

And the Director of the Holy See Press Office did not rule out the publication this year of the Pope’s first encyclical remembering that Benedict XVI had already prepared the material on the topic of faith.
