“In the background to the Pope’s visit to the Holy Land...”


For a long time used to seeing the Holy Father only within the Vatican Walls, one wonders what further steps may be taken in this territorial expansion


Giulio Andreotti


In the background to the Pope’s visit to the Holy Land resounded the cheers with which the people hailed Jesus on his entry into Jerusalem.
For a long time used to seeing the Holy Father only within the Vatican Walls, one wonders what further steps may be taken in this territorial expansion.
Unfortunately recollection of the life of the Redeemer also involves thinking about the related developments. The same people who had welcomed Him blessing the Lord and waving olive branches, shortly after gave out the lugubrious cry of “Crucify him”.
Thinking about the opposing cries throughout the centuries and territories of the world.
The opposition has lasted throughout the development of history, perhaps with a prevalence of the cry hostile to Jesus. But there have also been so many stupendous oases.
