Pope Francis took it easy Tuesday after his long flight to Brazil, attending a private Mass and meeting with church officials.
The World Youth Day festival got underway, with an estimated half million Roman Catholic faithful crowding onto Copacabana beach for a Mass under rainy skies.
Preparations also continued in the town of Aparecida, where the pope will go Wednesday to visit the basilica that holds Brazil’s patron saint, the dark-skinned Virgin of Aparecida, and have lunch with bishops and seminarians.
