Pope Benedict XVI in Brazil: Day Five

Today at 9:00 AM, Pope Benedict XVI celebrated the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in front of the Shrine of Aparecida. Nearly 150,000 people attended the open-air Mass. This was the opening Mass for the 5th general Conference of Latin American and Caribbean bishops (CELAM). Let us pray for an end to Protestantism - in particular the heresies of the Pentecostal religion.

His homily is available on the Vatican's website as is his Regina Cæli address.

Following the Mass and his address at the Inaugural session of the Fifth General Conference of the Bishops of Latin America, Pope Benedict XVI departed Brazil and thus concluded his sixth apostolic voyage outside of Italy.
