Even before Pope Francis greeted thousands of young people in his first official World Youth Day event this evening, he made three stops in Rio de Janeiro earlier Thursday. He visited city hall to get an outsized key to the city and other souvenirs, visited one of Rio’s notorious “favelas,” and greeted fellow citizens of his beloved Argentina.
