Pope Francis is in Brazil today on his first international trip. When he arrived in Rio de Janeiro on Monday, he insisted on a simple car, a silver hatchback, sending the message that he wants to be close to the people.
The Pope says he wants to "gently knock on the door of Brazil," CNN's Miguel Marquez reports. He even drove with the windows down and when he came to a stop, he was swarmed by people, nearly putting himself at risk.
This trip is important for the church because it will bring all countries together and make for a strong emotional experience, says Marquez. It is a good start for a man on a mission to reinvigorate the church.
