From the height of the Shrine of Our Lady of the Rock – one of the major points of devotion in the city of Rio de Janeiro – were displayed the faces of saints and blesseds that will provide heavenly assistance to those who travel to World Youth Day 2013 in Rio. The Local Organizing Committee named five patron saints and thirteen holy intercessors.
