· With the joy of meeting Pope Francis ·
Young people from the 'villas miserias' – the poorest neighbourhoods on the outskirts of Buenos Aires where Cardinal Bergoglio used to go often to bring comfort – will be in Rio for World Youth Day. And during their time in Brazil won't miss out on a chance to stop in Varginha, the favela, where the Pope will go Thursday morning, 25 July, to be among the poorest of the poor. It will be “a moment of brotherly encounter”, the Argentine news agency AICA anticipates.
There are 77 young people from the outskirts of the Argentine capital going to Rio de Janeiro. The young 'villeros' are bringing their friends in Varginha a gift: a statue of the Virgin of Luján, Patroness of Argentina.
