It was officially announced on December 12, 2011 in St. Peter's Basilica on the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, patroness of Latin America, that the Pope will travel to Mexico and Cuba before Easter.

The pontiff said he wants to proclaim the Word of Christ in Latin America and the Caribbean in this "propitious time to evangelize." Nearly 85 years old, Benedict XVI intends, for the second time, to make an apostolic visit to Latin America, which is home to more than 40% of the world’s Catholics. He visited Brazil in May 2007. In addition, he confirmed that World Youth Day 2013 is set to be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. . (Sources: Apic / Radio Vatican - DICI No. 247 of 23/12/11)
