Pope Francis, Making Final Adjustments for his Trip to Brazil

Last edited 18th July 2013

The Pope's first international trip to World Youth Day in Brazil, is also his first journey to his native Latin America as Pope. It will surely be an extremely busy trip. While planning his schedule for his week in Rio de Janeiro, Pope Francis decided to make his own adjustments to the program, which had been approved by his predecessor.

First of all, for his stay in Rio, Pope Francis specifically asked his cooperators to arrange an open-air popemobile, instead of the glassed version normally used in the past. Even though some are concerned with safety, the Vatican seems very confident.
