Pope Francis Begins Visit to Paraguay

Asuncion, July 10 (RHC)-- Pope Francis begins his visit to Paraguay on Friday and is scheduled to meet in Asuncion, the capital, with President Horacio Cartes.  The Pope has a tight agenda in the South American country, the third of his current Latin American tour.

Tomorrow, Saturday, the head of the Catholic Church will visit children and patients at the Acosta Ñu Children's Hospital in the city of San Lorenzo.

During his stay in Paraguay, Pope Francis will visit the city of Caacupé, also known as the spiritual capital of Paraguay and the center of Christian faith, where he will celebrate Mass in the Basilica of the Virgin of Caacupé. 

The head of the Vatican will have an exchange with representatives of the Church, religious leaders and bishops in the Metropolitan Cathedral of Assumption.

Yesterday, the Pope celebrated Mass in the Bolivian city of Santa Cruz, attended by thousands of people.  He said that the full wealth of a society is measured in the lives of its people.
