They brought ... a horn to the Pope's general audience!

One of the most anticipated moments in the general audience is at the beginning, when the Pope passes through the streets of the square greeting pilgrims from the Popemobile.

Sometimes funny scenes are witnessed, and other times moving scenes.

This group of Brazilians, led by their priest, did not go unnoticed as they tried to draw the attention of the Pope with a peculiar ox horn. They did not stop blowing the horn until Francis finally turned around and greeted them.

P. JUNIOR PERIQUITO
"In Brazil it is called "berrante.” The Pope has seen me play here and told me, 'Ciao.'"

"It's a big thrill to be here with the Pope. It's my first time and I've never seen the Pope so close-up before.”

They are very excited and come from the state of Goias in central Brazil. Before coming to Rome, they visited the Holy Land. Now, to be in the Eternal City with the Pope is the icing on the cake.

"Passion, passion, passion. I cried a lot. I would like to hug him. I send the Pope a kiss."

Fr. Junior Periquito is not just a pastor, but one that preaches by using his voice in every way. In Brazil, Catholic rock moves crowds. He also tries to sing when preaching the Word of God, because it is well-known that by praying while singing, one prays twice.
