After settling into our hotel the Frs set off to get there accreditation for the Papal functions. Long story short it didn't go well, we have to back tomorrow be aide the Holy Father announced that he was going for a tour around the city after he landed. The cathedral was in a state of chaos with painting and cleaning. The atmosphere was amazing. People singing and cheering.
This evening we had Mass with all the English speaking pilgrims in one of the parishes of Rio. The large church was filled with pilgrims from Birmingham, London, Nottingham, Eastanglia, Gibraltar, parts of America, and many more!!
