WYD13 Blog - Pope Francis arrives in Rio

Originally published by the WYD13 Parramatta Pilgrims Blog

Pope Francis has got in the back of a standard Silver Fiat Punto as pilgrims from the Parramatta Diocese line the route hoping to get a first glimpse of the Holy Father.

Pope Francis’ car was mobbed by (non-Parramatta) pilgrims creating a security headache for the guards.

Earlier in the day Bishop Anthony Fisher lead  a tour for the pilgrim group through the Metropolitan Cathedral of San Sebastian.

Last night the Pilgrims were reunited as Bishop Anthony celebrated Mass and Archbishop Mark Coleridge preached at a local church of St Rita’s.
