Popemobile revving for Brazil's World Youth Day

Brazil is preparing for the arrival of Pope Francis next week.

He is visiting there for the 28th World Youth Day according to Sky News.

A giant stage is being built at Copacabana Beach in Rio De Janeiro where Pope Francis will address the crowd.

Sky News reporter Chloe Culpan says he will be visiting a slum while he's there.

"Many events are scheduled for him, including a trip to a favela (shanty town). He said he wants to put the poor at the heart of his papacy."

The Popemobile has arrived, and the Pilgrim's Cross has been delivered as well as an icon of the Virgin Mary.
