At the end of 2005, when Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI visited Brazil for a conference in Aparecida (SP), Friar Hans Stapel considered the opportunity for the Pope to personally get to know São Libório Farm in Guaratinguetá (SP).
The founder asked the welcome of all 40 communities around the world to pray after the mystery of the rosary with the intention of this opportunity. Every day more than 2 thousand young people prayed for this intention. Friar Hans and Nelson asked the best-known bishops of Brazil and Latin America to write to the Pope requesting the invitation. Also, many young people from the Farms wrote to the Pope, reinforcing the invitation. Bishop Lorenzo Baldisseri, Apostolic Nuncio to Brazil, took all these requests directly to Benedict XVI.
In January of 2006, during a congress in Rome, where he shared the testimony of his charitable work, Friar Hans spoke about Pope Benedict XVI's Farm of Hope and extended an official invitation to him to visit Saint Liborius Farm in Guaratinguetá. With the confirmation of Pope Benedict XVI, welcomed from other countries began a major fundraising action to fund their own trip and that of some friends to Brazil, especially for the São Libório Farm. Friar Hans and Nelson traveled to the communities located in Germany, Argentina, the Philippines and Mozambique to prepare for the coming of young people to Brazil.
