Pope at the wall

A powerful image of an unscheduled moment in Bethlehem today. Injustice doesn’t keep to prepared schedules. Neither does Pope Francis in denouncing it.

I'm a 37-year-old lay Catholic from the diocese of Groningen-Leeuwarden. I write about the Catholic Church in the Netherlands. I not only enjoy bringing selected developments to the attention of readers, but I also think that it is sometimes important to allow a wider audience to read about the state of the Church in the Netherlands. That's why a fair number of posts about that topic will be translations of Dutch articles, episcopal writings and whatever else.

One thought on “Pope at the wall”

  1. It is wonderful that the Holy Father stopped to denounce this graffito, `Bethlehem look like Warsaw Ghetto`, with its worse than unjust identification of Israelis with Nazis!
