Pope Francis to travel by plane to popular shrine

Rio de Janeiro, July 24 - Due to bad weather conditions, Pope Francis will travel by airplane Wednesday to the Shrine of Our Lady of the Conception of Aparecida instead of by helicopter as originally planned, Vatican Spokesman Father Federico Lombardi said. The Argentinian pontiff will celebrate Mass at the shrine and then have lunch with the bishops of the province and seminarians in the Bon Jesus Seminary. Francis, on a week-long visit to Brazil for World Youth Day (WYD), is on his first overseas trip since being elected pontiff in March.
