World Youth Day Cross to Visit Southern Cone of South America

The apostolic nuncio to Brazil expressed joy Sept. 18 as the World Youth Day cross arrived in Brazil. He explained that Pope Benedict XVI wants the Brazilian youth to welcome it and to carry it to Chile, Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay, the countries that make up the region of South America known as the Southern Cone.

“The Pope is entrusting this important mission to you, young people, to be the protagonists in the adventure that is carrying the cross and the icon of Our Lady to all of Brazil and the Southern Cone,” said Archbishop Lorenzo Baldisseri. “Therefore, embrace the desire of the cross and cultivate the joy of living and of achieving happiness.” Visit this article to read more.
