Pope Francis will begin his official visit to Thailand on Nov. 20 and will have the company of a very familiar translator: his second cousin Ana Rosa Sivori, who came to the Southeast Asian country as a missionary 50 years ago.

Sister Sivori, 77, told EFE that the Pope had suggested her name as his translator for his Thailand visit.EFE-EPA
