  1. Go to the Chiesa blog and see what the surprise Pope did. He wants to have the Latin American Catholic convention in Brazil in the shrine of Aparecida, he just got inspired to say it and no one knew about it. Everyone was taken aback. That is good, if John Paul II would break walls with his bare hands ( it was said that it was his style with the world walls) then this pope is the one who makes the high places low and the low places high. Blessed be the Lord in his saints and angels. This is wdcopportunity in WDC. The capital of the world.
