Brazil - World Youth Day

The stamps on this cover from Brazil commemorate the coming of World Youth Day, to be held in Rio de Janerio, 23-28 July 2013. The last few events have been held every 3 years but 2014 is a World Cup year (to be held in Brazil) and they didn't want a conflict. World Youth Day is organized by the Catholic church and this year Pope Francis will be in attendance.
