Pope wants to meet youth in 'social environment'

(see related)Papal Flight, July 22 - Pope Francis said on his flight to Brazil Monday that he was travelling to the country to meet with youth in their "social environment", not in isolation. The pontiff is in route for his first official international trip to Brazil where he will be spending a week for World Youth Day. "When we isolate youth, we do them an injustice by taking away their country, culture and family," the pope said. The Argentine pontiff also said that "integration" was needed for the elderly, "who are part of the future". His scheduled arrival time in Rio de Janeiro is 16:00 local time after a 12-hour flight. He will return July 28.
