A wooden cross, symbol of the World Youth Day given to young people of the church in 1983 by Pope John Paul II, is carried along Copacabana beach by pilgrims in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Sunday July 21, 2013. Pope Francis, the 76-year-old Argentine who became the church's first pontiff from the Americas in March, will return Monday to the embrace of Latin America to preside over the Roman Catholic Church's World Youth Day festival.
