Pope Francis in the Holy Land: the "politics" of prayer
The pontiff's invitation to host the Israeli and Palestinian leaders in the Vatican is a first sign of the "success" of the trip to the Holy Land. The meeting, possibly in June, will be a meeting "of prayer". Pope Francis believes in the power of invocation: to break down the walls, to hasten the coming of justice, to make real the "dream" of two safe and friendly States. The unity of Christians - realized through prayer and self-giving - gifting hope to the world. This is why the heart of this journey was not politics, but the embrace between Francis and Bartholomew.
