RIO DE JANEIRO — Vatican spokesman Rev. Federico Lombardi says that a Mass Pope Francis will celebrate on Sunday has been moved from a rural countryside location 30 miles (50 kilometers) west of Rio de Janeiro to Copacabana beach.

That's because non-stop rain the last few days turned the rural site into a giant pit of knee-deep mud.
