  • Description

    Brazilian president Costa e Silva and 200,000 persons greeted an emissary from Pope Paul-the-sixth in the small Brazilian town of Aparecida, in the state of Sao Paulo, Tuesday (August 15). The emissary--Cardinal Cicognani was bearing a Papal gift. It was an 11-pound solid gold rose sent by Pope Paul in commemoration of the 250th anniversary of Brazil's National Basilica which is located in Aparecida.

    The center of the Brazilian Catholic Church is in the Sao Paulo town. A small statue of a Negro woman saint known as the Our Lady of Aparecida is in the National Basilica. Pope Paul's "Rose of Gold" will share the Basilica's throne with the statue.
