Crowd at Pope Francis Mass In Brazil

fROM MY LOCAL NEWSPAPER fOREIGN NEWS:
“Brazilian researchers say the Roman Catholic Church’s estimate of the crowd that turned out to see Pope Francis celebrate Mass on Copacabana beach is inflated, if still impressive.

The Vatican says 3.7 million people turned out last Sunday to see the Pope in Rio…But one of Brazil’s top polling and research firms says it would be physically impossible to cram that many people into the area where the crowd was gathered. The firm estimates the crowd at the Mass was at most 1.5 million people, which it called a generous estimate.”

Gosh. And I was so sure 3.7 million people were there…

  1. Contrast the secularity posing as spirituality at WYD with the DEVOUT Catholic youngsters that annually attend the Chartres Pilgrimage each year.

    RIO:

    Extensive swimming, frolicking, wooohoooo-ing in the sin capital of SA.

    Extensive intersex mingling, including overnight.

    Pathetic and even offensive rock/pop crapola music 24/7

    Finale: Nervous Ordeal protestantized “mass” on an infamous beach on an impromptu Star Trek-style stage.

    CHARTRES:

    Extensive hiking (a religious pilgrimage!) in all kinds of inclement weather.

    Sexes totally separated for overnight rest.

    French boy and girl scouts lead chants and traditional French religious songs.

    Finale; TLM at the Chartres Cathedral, the most magnificent cathedral in the world.

  2. Apparently, Jorge had Louis Farrakhan do the initial count.
