Pope to Youth: 'Go and make disciples.' Go beyond the confines of what is humanly possible

2013-07-23

After a12 hour flight, Pope Francis made it to Brazil. With acheering crowd in the background,  the Pope was greeted by the countrys president, Dilma Rousseff and Brazils religious leaders.

The transportation that came afterward, seemed a bit cumbersome. He first boarded a modest gray car, where he was swarmed by enthusiastic crowds and heavy traffic. The Pope then hopped on his open air popemobile, as he went through the city's streets. He finally took a military helicopter to Rio's Guanabara Palace. 

There, during his first official speech, he thanked Brazil for its hospitality, adding that he hopes to give them, the most valuable gift of all.  

POPE FRANCIS
"I have neither silver nor gold, but I bring with me the most precious thing given to me: Jesus Christ! I have come in his name, to feed the flame of fraternal love that burns in every heart; and I wish my greeting to reach one and all: The peace of Christ be with you!”

Speaking in Portuguese,  the Pope said that through World Youth Day, he hopes to make disciples of all nations. He also encouraged the youth, to go above and beyond what's expected. 

POPE FRANCIS
"Christ has confidence in young people and entrusts them with the very future of his mission, "Go and make disciples". Go beyond the confines of what is humanly possible and create a world of brothers and sisters.” 

The Pope then emphasized that even though World Youth Day is a celebration for the youth, he also wants to reach out to all generations, so that the message of Jesus is proclaimed loud and clear. 

POPE FRANCIS 
 "As I begin my visit to Brazil, I am well aware that, in addressing young people, I am also speaking to their families, their local and national church communities, the societies they come from, and the men and women upon whom this new generation largely depends.”

The Pope's trip to Brazil, was first approved by Benedict XVI during his pontificate.  During his speech Pope Francis said he believed it was providential that his first international trip is to his beloved Latin America.
