Brazil Renaissance

In this Sunday, July 14, 2013 photo, people watch Priest Marcio Queiroz, behind top center, celebrate Mass inside the Chapel of Sao Jeronimo Emiliano in the Varginha area of the Manguinhos slum complex where Pope Francis is expected to visit during his trip to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In one of the key events of his trip, the church's first Jesuit leader will venture into this rough slum that sits along a violence-soaked road known by locals as the Gaza Strip. Francis will forego the bullet-proof popemobile used by his two predecessors and instead wade through crowds in an open vehicle, a moved strongly opposed by Brazilian security officials.
