Pope to return to Copacabana on fifth day of Brazil visit

Rio de Janeiro, July 26 - Pope Francis is set to return to Rio de Janeiro's Copacabana beach on Friday, the day after over one million youth greeted him for a celebration with pilgrims during the week celebrating World Youth Day (WYD). The Argentine pope will take part in the stages of the cross procession, or Via Crucis, and will give a speech afterwards. Pope Francis has been in Brazil since Monday. On his fifth day in the South American country, the pope will hear confessions in the Quinta de Boa Vista park, meet with young prisoners at the Archbishop's Palace St. Joachim and have lunch with 12 young pilgrims from around the world, representing all of continents.
