Some 70,000 Brazilians, including President Dilma Rousseff, attended the May 22 beatification of Sister Dulce Lopes Pontes (1914-92), a nun who served the poorest of the poor. Cardinal Geraldo Majella Agnelo, who led the Archdiocese of Sao Salvador da Bahia from 1999 until January 2011, presided at the beatification Mass.
