"You Are Not Alone"

Despite recent protests throughout Brazil, Pope Francis evaded serious security measures to immerse himself in Brazil’s most violent and poorest favelas, or slums, to emphasize his mission to lead a “church for the poor.” “You are not alone,” he told the crowd. “The church is with you, the pope is with you.”
