Pope to Youth: See You in Rio de Janeiro

A delegation of young Brazilians present at Cuatro Vientos in Madrid erupted with applause at Benedict XVI's official announcement that the next World Youth Day would take place in their country in 2013. The Pope, who would be 86 years old at the next youth day in August 2013, told the delegation in Portuguese: “I hope to be able to meet you in 2 years (…) in Rio de Janeiro.”
