In a speech in Brazil, Pope Francis stressed the importance of family and grandparents in particular. ?How precious is the family as the privileged place for transmitting the faith,? the Pope said, according to an English-language version of his Angelus address released by Vatican spokesman. Pope Francis, who was speaking to a crowd at the archbishop?s residence in Rio de Janeiro, said the dialogue between generations was ?a treasure to be preserved and strengthened.? Brazil businessman Eike Batista has seen better days. Last March the Brazilian tycoon ranked as the world's eighth richest person with a net worth of $34.5 billion. According to Bloomberg Billionaires, his net worth today is $200 million. The "slum pope" returned to the slum as Pope Francis visited one of Rio de Janeiro's favelas, telling its residents that the wealthy must do more to end the "culture of selfishness" that has left the poor on the margins of society. less
