Pope masks are made in Brazil - level 3
Now you know you’re a celebrity. Get one of these mades. Yeah, a Brazilian mask maker has made hundreds of pope Francis's masks ahead of the church's World Day of Youth in July. The event which these hundreds of catholic youngsters gather together takes place in a different city every two years and this year is Rio de Janeiro's turn.
Albert Paris is a man behind the creation and says it's a tribute to first ever Latin American pope.
"He's a very charismatic pope, very humble. He's a lot closer to the people, a person well adapted to the current world and society. That was the main reason we decided to make the mask, that and pope Francis's visit to Brazil and Rio de Janeiro. We believe that the mask will be well accepted by the people and the arrival of the pope will bring together."
Maria Nouquara is one of the workers involved in the production.
"We're happy to know that they know I was the one who made the mask and I hope he likes it. We hope there is a crowd of pope Francises throughout the streets the moment he arrives in Brasil and Rio de Janeiro.
July's trip will be the pope's first to Brazil since being elected to the head of the Catholic Church.
