The Pope's Going To The Holy Land

The title says it all ... read about it at Zenit.

VATICAN CITY, MARCH 26, 2009 ( Benedict XVI will visit the Wailing Wall, Jerusalem's Square of Mosques, the Grotto of the Nativity and Nazareth during his trip to the Holy Land this spring.

Today the Vatican press office published the Pope's itinerary for his 12th international trip, which will take place May 8-15.

Political realities aside, does anybody find it weird that the birthplace of Christianity is a place where the Pope can only visit for a short time? Sigh.

Maybe the Vatican should be in Jerusalem.

Sure -- THAT wouldn't start a holy war! ;-)
