Pope tweets thanks after arrival in Rio

(ANSA) – Vatican City, July 23 – Pope Francis tweeted his thanks Tuesday to Brazilian authorities and the people of Rio de Janeiro one day after his arrival there for World Youth Day. "Thank you to all of you and to all the authorities for a magnificent welcome in Rio," the pope wrote on his @Pontifex Twitter feed. Francis had a day of rest planned after he was welcomed Monday by thousands in emotional and sometimes chaotic scenes in Rio de Janeiro. The pope has travelled to Brazil for a week-long stay in his first overseas visit since being elected head of the Catholic Church in March.
