Rome, July 29 - Pope Francis returned to Italy
Monday after a week in Brazil for World Youth Day.
Before leaving the South American country, the pontiff
thanked crowds at Rio de Janeiro's Galeao Airport gathered to
see him for "a splendid celebration of the richness and joy of
our faith in Jesus Christ".
"I will always place my hopes in the young people of Brazil
and in the young around the world: through them, Christ is
preparing a new springtime all over the earth," Pope Francis
said.
"I depart with many happy memories which I know will nourish
my prayers. Already I am beginning to miss Brazil, this great
people showing so much affection and friendship. I shall miss
the natural and warm smiles I have seen in so many faces, and
the enthusiasm shown by the volunteers," he said.
The pope travelled to Brazil last Monday in his first
overseas visit since being elected head of the Catholic Church
in March.
