Pope may receive a 10 foot gift from organizers of WYD 2013 in Rio

Several representatives are expected to attend that Mass, including several episcopal conferences and lay movements from more than 80 countries. Also expected are pilgrims who attended World Youth Day in Sydney and Madrid. Now Rio is getting ready to welcome World Youth Day in 2013.
