Save the Holy Land

Pope Encourages Pilgrimages to Holy Land

The economy in the Holy Land is going down the toilet and the number of Palestinian Christians decreasing so the Pope is encouraging "pilgrimages of peace" to the Holy Land to express solidarity with the local Christians and put a little money in their pocket as well.

Actually this is quite interesting. If things get worse in the Holy Land, the Pope himself may have to go there to help things along and perhaps save some of the sites holy to Christians. I can't see him just abandoning them. How many people will visit the Holy Land if the Pope is there? Let's just say ... alot.
