Pope prays for World Youth Day

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis has thanked pilgrims in St. Peter's Square for their good wishes for his impending journey to Brazil for World Youth Day.

The pope departed from his prepared text during the traditional Sunday Angelus blessing to point to a large banner with "Buon Viaggio," or "Good Trip," written across it.

"I ask you to join me spiritually through prayer on the journey I will be begin tomorrow," Francis said.

More than a million young Catholics are expected to celebrate their new pope during World Youth Day in Rio.

The 76-year-old Argentine became the church's first pontiff from the Americas in March, and the trip to Brazil is his first international journey since becoming pope.

I think most intelligent people in the civilized world realize the Catholic Church is nothing but evil and bigotry today.

That leaves the poor and stupid in the audience.

Isn't this tantamount to a lion pride hosting a gathering of gazelle?

I like this new pope. He's turning everything upside down.

R1, there are one and a half BILLION catholics in the world.

You aren't as smart as you think you are.

But Roman Catholic priests have been praying for a youth - or preying on youths - for a long time now !

Actually, I'm a lapsed Catholic, R7.

I don't get it, you bitch when an obvious villain like that vampire Bernie is in the office, but someone who by all accounts is humble and reform-minded can't catch a break.

You just come off as a spiteful little twat.

He's not humble or reform-minded. He is violently antigay (or was in Argentina), where he also had suspiciously close ties to the military reign of terror.

Or so you're read somewhere, R10.

R11, the Pope thinks you are a faggot. This Pope, the last Pope, the one before him, the one they are rushing towards sainthood. JP I didn't think you were one - and you see where that got him.

Like you know him personally R11. The head of the Argentine government once called him "something out of the middle ages" which was not a compliment.

The Holy Father loves us all and wants to us to go to Heaven. That is why he has to warn us that we must leave our sinful lifestyle. It is not a sin to be gay but, it is a sin to engage in homosexual acts. If the Holy Father didn't love us, he wouldn't care if we went to Heaven or not.

It is not a sin R14, and all these holy types know it because unlike you, they've actually read the Bible.
