Next Stop - Rio de Janeiro: The World’s Youth Looking Forward to 2013

From 23-28 July 2013, the Corcovado’s giant statue of the Christ the Redeemer will welcome in its symbolic embrace young people from all over the world for the next international instalment of WYD in Rio de Janeiro. Brazilian Archbishop Orani João Tempesta said: “We want to show that Rio is not just sports and carnivals. Our day should be an opportunity for those of our young people who are afflicted with problems like poverty, violence and drugs”.
Visit this article from the Vatican Newspaper L'Osservatore Romano, which explores the urgent need for a re-evangelisation of Brazil, and looks at the challenges ahead for the city of Rio as they prepare for WYD 2013.
