To Brazil

The Holy Father is on his way to Brazil. He left Rome's Fiumiocino airport this morning and should be arriving in São Paolo around 5:30 est.

While in São Paolo, he will be staying at the monastery of São Bento (Saint Benedict).

Here is a link to the schedule for this trip.

As a person of Portuguese descent, I am delighted that Pope Benedict has chosen to visit Brazil.

Pray with me for him and the people of Brazil:

Avé Maria, cheia de graça, o Senhor é convosco.
Bendita sois vós entre as mulheres;
bendito é o fruto do vosso ventre, Jesus.
Santa Maria, mãe de Deus, rogai por nós, pecadores,
agora e na hora da nossa morte.
